Tambov prison officer caught taking bribe from former prisoner
Police has initiated a case against a former prison officer for taking a bribe in the Tambov Region. The perpetrator was caught red-handed in the Rasskazovsky District.
Employees of the 2nd Department for Investigating High-Level Cases of the Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Samara Region finished investigating the case against the former prison officer of the Prison № 3 for breaking the article 290, part 3 (Taking a bribe by a functionary, a foreign functionary or a functionary of a public international organization for unlawful actions (inaction)) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The Department investigates economic crimes against state authority.
The perpetrator took a 62.000 rubles bribe from a former prisoner, according to the investigators. He was to snuck mobile phones and mobile phone components behind the prison walls in exchange for the money.
FSB officers arrested him when trying to snuck the items behind the prison walls. The perpetrator claimed he did not receive any money for his ‘service’ during the investigation. However, the police managed to find evidence proving that he did. The case has been transferred to court for further consideration.
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.
