Belgorod Traffic Police officer fined 1 million rubles for soliciting bribes
In the Belgorod region, the traffic police officer was sentenced to a fine of 1 million rubles for 15 thousand rubles extortion.
The Gubkinsky District Court rendered a guilty verdict to the local traffic police officer for extorting the bribe from a driver.
During the investigation and subsequent trial it was established that, in September 2015, the police stopped a truck on the road for inspection. The driver turned out to be drunk. In addition, a declaration on shipping was empty.
To "solve the problem", the inspector offered the driver to pay him 15 thousand rubles. Otherwise, he threatened him with bringing to administrative responsibility for violations.
The driver had not the required amount, and the men agreed to meet in a few days. At the same time, the trucker told the police about the fact of extortion by the traffic police officer. After the traffic police officer received the required amount, he was detained by the MIA officers.
The court sentenced the former police officer to the fine of 1 million 50 thousand rubles. In addition, the corrupt traffic police inspector is deprived of the right to work in law enforcement bodies for two years. This verdict is not yet in force and may be appealed.

The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
