St. Petersburg's operatives suspected of extorting bribes from alleged criminals in rape
According to the preliminary version, the law enforcement officers closed the case of rape against two residents of the northern capital in exchange for 150 thousand rubles.
Five operatives of the 64th department of the Interior Ministry in St. Petersburg called for questioning at the Investigative Committee in the case of bribe extortion, Fontanka writes.
According to the publication, the story began with a statement of two women working as dancers on a call. According to victims, they were raped by two clients, to whom they came to call. Upon the application the examination was conducted, but the case was not opened.
It is assumed that one of the St. Petersburg Police operatives recovered from one of the suspects 150 thousand rubles in exchange for non-conducting next examination. However, after an investigation had been closed, the man was summoned to the Investigative Committee again to clarify certain formalities. A disgruntled resident of the northern capital expressed surprise in an interview with the investigator - why he was summoned again for questioning if he had "settled" everything with the investigator. As a result, the man confessed to bribing police officers.
After this, five of the eight operatives of the 64th Criminal Investigation Police Department were taken to the ICR Investigation Department. Four of them are questioned - those who took explanations from the applicants and detained. One detective, who allegedly received the bribe, was arrested in the order of Article 91 of the CPC for two days.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
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.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
