Suspect in negligent death of drug addict faces new charges
The 34-year-old was allegedly involved in the illegal treatment of addicts at the controversial Gorod Bez Narkotikov foundation, where patients were involved in radical treatment that often involved total isolation while overcoming withdrawal symptoms, RIA Novosti reports.
The latest charges allege that Shabalin held six women at the center against their will since the beginning of 2012. If found guilty, Shabalin could face up to five years in prison. He is also accused of coercing witnesses to provide false testimony.
Tatyana Kazantseva died of meningitis while at one of the rehabilitation centers earlier this year. She complained of being sick and was only taken to a hospital 10 days later. The incident prompted several criminal cases to be opened against the foundation.
Yevgeny Roizman, a controversial anti-drug crusader, said the cases are being used by Russia's healthcare establishment to crack down on the group, RIA Novosti reports.
