The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation searches the Administration of Internal Affairs of Southeastern District of Moscow.
The building of the Internal Affairs Administration of the Southeastern District of Moscow is being searched, the Investigative Committee of Russia reported. According to Interfax, which refers to a source in law enforcement agencies, the search is conducted as part of the criminal case into Abuse of offical Powers (Art. 286 of the Russian Criminal Code), committed by a high-ranking police officer of the Department.
Citing its sources, Life reported that the searches are conducted by officers of the General Administration for Internal Security of the Russian Interior Ministry as part of a criminal case initiated by the Investigative Committee a few days ago. In particular, one of the agents of the third detective squad is suspected of having connections with the gang of car thieves, which operates in the capital.
As a reminder, on June 11, the gang was detained in Moscow after stealing a Nissan Patrol and Infiniti Q70. At the time of the arrest, not only the thieves were in the car, but also the officer of the Road Patrol Service of the Mytishchinskoye Intermunicipal Department of the Russian Interior Ministry.
Earlier, the press office of the Main Department of the Ministry of Interior announced the arrest of the gang of car thieves. A criminal case into theft was initiated. The suspects had cash amounting to 1.4 million rubles, tools for breaking into cars and turning off the alarm, the keys to the car ignition locks, and sets of registration plates.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
