Surgut court hears case against City Without Drugs managers
In total, 13 patients of the drug rehabilitation center have filed complains against Vaganova and Yakovlev, his subordinate, claiming the center detained them against their will between 2011 and 2013, Kommersant reports.
Vaganova allegedly oversaw the creation of contracts wherein relatives of drug addicts paid the center between $280 and $700 for rehabilitative care. According to investigators, the contracts stipulated that patients were free to leave the program at will.
The 13 former residents of City Without Drugs each have testified that they received no rehabilitative services while at the facility but were simply locked inside all day, according to Kommersant.
Vaganova maintains that patients were always free to leave the program and that legal action is being brought against him, his subordinate and the center because former patients are being pressured by law enforcement agencies.
"We are the ones who led the fight against the sale of drugs, and we are the only ones to whom the law enforcement agencies [filed] claims," Vaganova said, Kommersant reports.
