No blame in activist's death, says report
By The Holland Times Fri. 19 April 2013
Authorities have found no connection between the suicide of Russian activist Alexander Dolmatov and the conditions in the Rotterdam deportation centre in which he was being held, according to a report by the Dutch Safety and Justice Inspection (Nederlandse Veiligheid en Justitie Inspectie).
However, the Safety and Justice Inspection concluded that his detention at the prison-like centre was unreasonable; as he had filed his appeal against being denied political asylum on time, he did not qualify as an illegal immigrant. He was also not being given proper medical care. However, the report emphasizes that Dolmatov's suicide was not related to any mistreatment.
Mr. Dolmatov died on January 17, 2013 in his cell at the detention centre in Rotterdam, where he stayed in connection with his planned deportation to Russia.
