    The ex-employee of Yukos Pichugin was again denied a pardon in defiance of the Constitution | 21 Jul 2017

    Alexey PichuginThe representative of the Commission on pardons of the Orenburg region has informed RIA «news» the rejection of his second application for clemency from a former employee of security service of Yukos, Alexei Pichugin, who is serving a life sentence on charges of organizing several murders.

    "The Commission concerning pardon in territory of the Orenburg region rejected the petition for clemency from the former head of security, Alexei Pichugin," said the Commission.

    Recall that in July last year, a similar incident became the reason for the proceedings at the Federal level: the press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the petition Pichugin in the Kremlin has not received, as it is, in his opinion, was rejected «at an earlier stage»  Governor of Orenburg region Yuri Berg (area is a colony for life-term prisoners «the Black Dolphin»).

    Thus in a press-service of the Berg has categorically denied any involvement in the rejection of the petition, stating that the Governor has no right to put «no signature» to such documents, and the pardon refers to the competence of the Federal authorities.

    Similar explanations were given at the same time and experts. In particular, the judge of the constitutional court in resignation Tamara Morshchakova said that the right of pardon under the Constitution is the exclusive prerogative of the President of the Russian Federation, and the regional authorities can only be given to those recommendations.
