The head of the organisation monitoring violations committed by the security and law enforcement services stated that the Russian authorities “systemically abuse their power” to supposedly intimidate “political undesirables.”
Such accusations were brushed off by the Investigative Committee as “baseless.” The law enforcement agency said the incident cannot be linked to the recent police raid, since Slavina was not a suspect in any case and no charges were brought against her. It also confirmed that the journalist was a witness in the ongoing probe against Iosilevich and his supposed involvement in the activities of ‘Open Russia’.
The investigators have requested a posthumous psychiatric examination of Slavina to try and determine potential motives for her actions.
