Case initiated against head of Tuva police department after prisoners break-out
The investigation believes that the silovik admitted an unprepared trainee to duty.
In Tuva, a criminal case has been initiated against the acting head of the Barun-Khemchik police department; he is charged with Negligence, the regional ICR press service reports.
According to the investigation, the silovik admitted an unprepared trainee, who had not pass a pre-internship and certification, to duty. As a result, the trainee violated the rules for the withdrawal of prisoners from the detention center, which led to their escape.
April 14, nine prisoners escaped from the detention center in Tuva. During the escape, two of them stabbed a guard on duty. At the moment, six fugitives have been detained.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
