The court has arrested a 28-year-old Kaliningrad resident suspected of arson of a letter Z in Belgorod. This court verdict has been reported by a 7x7 correspondent from the courtroom.
The man will stay under arrest until at least November 19. The investigation accuses him of vandalism for political reasons.
At the hearing, the man claimed that pressure was imposed on him when he was in the police detention center. He said he was visited by "different people" who tried to make him confess.
The construction with a letter Z on Vatutin Avenue in Belgorod caught fire on the night of September 18. The arson was caught on video. The police detained the suspect a day after the arson. The law enforcers claim that during the search in the man's home, they found a RGD-5 grenade and a TNT explosive.
The man states that he was tortured while in detention. He says that he was taken to the forest by unidentified persons, who then beat him for several hours and tortured him with a stun gun and a gas burner.
