Former traffic police officer sentenced to 8 years for preparing two contract killings
In Novosibirsk, the court has convicted the former traffic police inspector, finding him guilty of the preparation of two assassinations.
The former police officer has been sentenced to 8 years in a strict-regime correctional colony.
According to the regional ICR, in the summer of 2016, the ex-employee of the State Traffic Inspectorate began to look for an assassin for his former civic spouse, who had dumped him. At the same time, he was ready to pay 160 thousand rubles ($2.7 thousand) for the 'favor'. Employees of the Criminal Investigation Department learned of his intention. They hired a fake hitman and staged the murder of the policeman's wife, showing him the victim's jewelry as a proof of 'work'.
In addition, the operatives found out that the ex-police officer was also going to kill his former colleague – an employee of the regional MIA General Administration's Department of Internal Security – for initiating an agency check against the man. The former 'guard of order' intended to carry out this assassination himself and bought a crossbow for this purpose.
According to Official Representative of the ICR Aleksey Maksimenko, during the investigation, the ex-policeman fully confessed to the crimes. The Zaeltsovsky District Court of Novosibirsk has found him guilty and sentenced him to 8 years in a strict-regime colony.
