The Moscow prosecutor’s office is investigating why PFUR (RUDN) professor with a disability of the first group was fined for violating the self-isolation regime.

“The Moscow prosecutor’s office is checking, according to media reports, about unjustifiably bringing a Muscovite to an administrative responsibility”, - Interfax quotes the representative of the department, Lyudmila Nefedova.

Earlier in the media, a message appeared that the Social Monitoring system issued a fine for violating self-isolation to Professor Irina Karabulatova, professor of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (pictured), who was a disabled person of the first group who had not gone outside for the past year.

After verification, an assessment of the legality of the decision in the case of an administrative offense will be given, if this violation has even occurred. According to Nefedova, if there are grounds, prosecutorial response measures will be taken to restore the rights of the fined.

Recall that the Social Monitoring service, designed to control citizens who have become coronavirus and are being treated at home, caused a wave of indignation from citizens and experts.

At the same time, the Moscow authorities lock up the houses of not only those who have confirmed COVID-19, but also everyone with SARS, allergies and a runny nose. Fines were added to the application on May 10. Authorities force citizens to take selfies several times a day, monitor the patient via GPS and send push notifications every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
