At that time, however, the sentencing procedure was stopped by the head of the NKVD himself - Lavrentiy Beria, who decided to present a radically different way of treating all the prisoners of special camps to the members of the Central Committee Political Bureau of the All-Union Communist Party (bolsheviks). The plan was to execute them in extrajudicial procedure - basing on the decisions taken by three high-ranking NKVD officials, specifically appointed for the purpose. What triggered such a sudden change and the use of methods from the time of the Great Purge, when thousands of people had been shot on the basis of similar decisions taken by three-person groups? Regrettably, we do not know. In his proposal, Beria wrote that the prisoners were inveterate enemies of the Soviet rule, holding no promise for changing; just waiting for the moment they were released from the camps to take up arms against it.

This is the intro to the Wikipedia entry about Lavrentiy Beria -
Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria (Georgian: ???????? ?????? ?? ?????, Lavrenti Pavles dze Beria; Russian: ????????? ???????? ?????; 29 March 1899 - 23 December 1953) was a Soviet politician, Marshal of the Soviet Union and state security administrator, chief of the Soviet security and secret police apparatus (NKVD) under Joseph Stalin during World War II, and Deputy Premier in the postwar years (1946-1953).
...
Beria was the longest lived and most influential of Stalin's secret police chiefs, wielding his most substantial influence during and after World War II. He simultaneously administered vast sections of the Soviet state and served as de facto Marshal of the Soviet Union in command of the NKVD field units responsible for anti-partisan operations on the Eastern Front during World War II, as well as for acting as barrier troops and the apprehension of thousands of "turncoats, deserters, cowards and suspected malingerers". Beria administered the vast expansion of the Gulaglabor camps and was primarily responsible for overseeing the secret defense institutions known as sharashkas, critical to the war effort. He also played the decisive role in coordinating the Soviet partisans, developing an impressive intelligence and sabotage network behind German lines. He attended the Yalta Conference with Stalin, who introduced him to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt as "our Himmler". After the war, he organized the communist takeover of the countries of Central Europe and Eastern Europe. Beria's uncompromising ruthlessness in his duties and skill at producing results culminated in his success in overseeing the Soviet atomic bomb project.
...
Beria was promoted to First Deputy Premier, where he carried out a brief campaign of liberalization. He was briefly a part of the ruling "troika" with Georgy Malenkov and Vyacheslav Molotov. Beria's overconfidence in his position after Stalin's death led him to misjudge the feelings of his associates, many of whom still had relatives in his prisons. In addition, his proposals to free East Germany and normalize relations with the United States alarmed other Politburo members, especially in the wake of the 1953 East German uprising which was put down only after an invasion by Soviet troops. During the coup d'etat led by Nikita Khrushchev and assisted by the military forces of the Marshal Georgy Zhukov, they formed an alliance to remove and kill Beria.
