Head of Belgorod Region police department sentenced to 4.5 years in prison for torturing local resident
In addition, the court prohibited the security forces officer to hold positions in law enforcement agencies for 2.5 years.
In the Belgorod Region, the court sentenced the head of the district MIA department, Boris Feofanov, to 4.5 years in a general regime penal colony on charges of torturing a local resident, the website of the regional ICR department reported.
The investigation and the court found that in November 2016 a resident of the Prokhorovsky District was invited to the police department to talk about “involvement in the commission of crimes.”
When the man was in the office, two policemen entered, one of whom was Feofanov. As the ICR writes, the officers hit the man about 50 times, and then handcuffed him and forcefully poured alcohol into his mouth in order to bring him to administrative responsibility.
After this, Feofanov, “in order to avoid criminal responsibility,” instructed his subordinate to bring the victim to administrative responsibility and draw up documents with false information.
Feofanov was found guilty under clauses “a” and “b” of part 3 of Article 286 CCRF (abuse of official authority with the use of violence and special means), part 3 of Article 33, part 1 of Article 286 CCRF (organization of abuse of official authority), part 3 of Article 33, Article 292 CCRF (organization of forgery). In addition, the court forbade Feofanov to hold positions in law enforcement bodies for 2.5 years.
