Policewoman in Tula region jailed for 1 year for falsified evidence
A 26-year-old investigator in the Tula region has been sentenced to a year in prison for forging evidence in a criminal case, Interfax reported.
The investigation established that while running a theft case, the detective had drawn up interrogation protocols of the victim and the witnesses in 2015 almost without any interrogation at all. She added false evidence in the files.
In addition to imprisonment, the court imposed on the former investigator a two-year ban from working in law enforcement and public authorities.
The Kuybyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg is to consider the third case against Barsukov (Kumarin), as part of which he is charged with criminal community creation. Previously, the 'night governor of St. Petersburg' had been held in the Moscow's Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center. It is also reported that Barsukov is to be questioned in the case of Galina Starovoytova's murder.
