Residents of Tver village admitted to crimes for food
The MIA sent a commission to check reports of framed up criminal cases.
In the village of Sonkovo, the Tver Region, several residents said that they had taken the blame for unsolved crimes in exchange for food and money that were allegedly issued by the head of the local police, Captain Anton Morozov. Journalists of Pervy Kanal reported about this in the program called Man and the Law. After the show, the MIA sent an inspection team to the village.
According to Irina Volk, the official representative of the miinistry, the inspection committee “included employees of the MIA’s internal security units and a personnel inspection from the central office”. If the information about the framed up criminal cases materials is confirmed, the perpetrator will be brought to justice, Volk assured.
Morozov says that he was slandered, and the residents of the village “were a little taught, tuned.”
