Traffic police officer sold insurance and driver's licenses in Cheboksary
In Cheboksary, a 36-year-old traffic police officer has been accused of selling fake documents.
The Cheboksary city department of the ICR for the Republic of Chuvashia has initiated a criminal case against a 36-year-old traffic police officer. The policeman is accused of selling forged documents (part 1 of Art. 327 of the Russian Criminal Code).
According to investigative bodies, in July and November last year, the Road Patrol Service inspector sold fake documents to car owners in Cheboksary, as well as certificates of compulsory civil liability insurance of owners of motor vehicles, receipts for insurance premiums, and forms of driver's license with fictitious marks about its issuance by Goznak. The price of insurance certificates and receipts was 3 thousand rubles (50 dollars), that of fake driver's license – 10 thousand rubles (170 dollars).
Law enforcement agencies are currently establishing all the circumstances of committed crimes. The investigation is ongoing.
Last week, the entire world has celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Internet. In the meantime, the Russian legislators have adopted new laws restricting the development of the Russian-speaking segment of the world wide web. The 'fake news' and 'internet insults' laws adopted under the pretext of protecting the society from manipulations and threat, including external ones, violate the Constitution and some federal laws in relation to the right to search for, obtain, and use information. Furthermore, the bill on ‘sovereign Internet’ passed in the first reading by the State Duma leads us directly to self-isolation.
