Traffic police officer caught on bribe while concealing drunken accident
The trial of 33-year-old former employee of the municipal department of traffic police begins in Sterlitamak, Republic of Bashkortostan.
The former police officer had been caught on bribery for concealing a drunk driving accident. A criminal case under Abuse of Authority and Bribery on a Small Scale has been initiated against him.
According to investigative bodies, this incident took place on November 11, 2016; driving a Lada Granta, a drunken man without a driver’s license violated the traffic rules and provoked a collision with two cars. The traffic police inspector agreed to conceal the accident in exchange for a bribe of 170 dollars (10 thousand rubles).
According to Senior Assistant to Media Relations Head of the ICR Investigations Directorate for the Republic of Bashkortostan Svetlana Abramova, the investigation into the criminal case is complete, and all investigation files has been referred to the court for further consideration on the merits.
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.
