The defendant in the case of the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal - Andrei Karepov, was beaten during his delivery to investigative actions. He complained about this to the Public Monitoring Commission (POC).

As the TASSPOC member Eva Merkacheva, who visited Karepova, said that he was taken to the Sklifosovsky Research Institute for examination, the injuries were additionally recorded in the pre-trial detention center. The POC members also saw beatings - bruises on the temple, shoulder, arm.

According to the human rights activist, the employees of the pre-trial detention center confirm the fact of the beating of Karepov, but they do not say how and under what circumstances it happened. Karepov himself claims that he was beaten by the guards. The PMC does not really believe in this and do not know if he could have injured himself.

According to the investigation, Karepov was a murder broker entrepreneurs Yevgeny Zori and Oleg Bulatov in Khabarovsk in 2004-2005. Ex-assistant Furgal was detained in 2005, but then the criminal case against him was dropped. In 2019, the case was resumed, Karepov was detained in the Khabarovsk Territory and convoyed to Moscow.
