Dennis Christensen's release from the colony postponed: the prosecutor's office appealed against the decision, the believer thrown into the special isolation wardOryol Region, Kursk Region
On June 26, 2020, the Kursk Prosecutor for the Oversight of Correctional Services appealed the court decision on mitigation of punishment to Dennis Christensen. On the same day, the colony staff illegally placed him for 10 days in a special detention facility designed for malicious violators of prison rules.
The defence challenges both the appeal submission by the Public Prosecutor's Office and the decision to place the believer in a unified cell-type room. However, all this means that Dennis Christensen will not be able to leave the colony for many more weeks.
On June 23, 2020, the Lgov District Court of the Kursk region ruled to soften Kristensen's sentence by replacing the unpaid part of the sentence with a fine of 400,000 rubles. Remarkably, that during the trial, the prosecutor supported the believer's petition to replace the prison sentence with a monetary fine.
