The Supreme Court ruled that prisoners should not wear watches in colonies

The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation rejected the claim of the former mayor of Makhachkala, Said Amirov, who was sentenced to life in prison for organizing the murder of an investigator and who asked to be given the right to wear a watch.

Among other things, they confiscated from Amirov a mechanical alarm clock that was in the cell, referring to the rules of the Federal Penitentiary Service, which prohibit prisoners from having watches and other valuables. Vladimir Postanyuk, representing the interests of the ex-mayor, insisted on his right to know the exact time.

The court recognized the ban on wearing watches in the colonies as legal.
