Criminal case initiated against Yakut police officers who beat driver
The Internet users were outraged by a video on which inspectors of traffic police were beating an allegedly drunk driver.
The Investigative Committee of Yakutia initiated a case over exceeding official powers against the traffic police officers, who beat the driver detained by them. Judging by a video uploaded in the network, the refusal of the man to pass a rapid test for alcohol served a reason for the conflict.
As the press service of the Investigative Committee told, now investigators attentively study the video.
The video shows how a police officer beats the driver, and two his colleagues quietly observe. Later the two joined the process. The detainee did not even try to resist.
In turn, the Ministry of Internal Affairs began a service check upon the incident.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
