In Nizhny Novgorod region of ex-police officers are to stand court for Abuse of Official Powers with grave consequences (item (b), part 3 of Article 286 of the Criminal Code), according to the regional ICR.
According to investigators, 33-year-old Chief of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ministry of Interior Affairs in Arzamas and his subordinate, 28-year-old policeman of the Patrol and Inspection Service persuaded a stranger to commit burglary in September 2014. A resident of Arzamas fulfilled all according to law enforcement instructions: infiltrated into said apartment, stole property and sold it. A man was arrested on suspicion of stealing, and then - condemned under the item (a) of part 3, Article 158 of the Criminal Code. Thus, law enforcement officers wanted to improve crime detection in the police department.
Policemen pleaded guilty to the crime. After the approval of charges against them by the Prosecutor the indictment will be transferred to the court.
For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
