Orsha police and medic Saikou subject dipsomaniacs to forced suggestive treatment
Several days ago the head of the Orsha District Police
Bureau Leanid Mikhailau gave an interview to the state-owned "Arshanskaya
Hazeta", dated to the Police Day. He enumerated the achievements of the
local police, including the struggle against dipsomania, and told how such
struggle was conducted.
As it was found, the Orsha police practice forced suggestive treatment with the assistance of psychotherapist Dzmitry Saikou. Many people ill with dipsomania are gathered in a village House of Culture, where Saikou performs a healing session, taking 550,000 rubles (about $67) for it.
The Orsha human rights defenders point that forced delivery of paid medical assistance is a violation of human rights, irrespective of the stated aims.
