Ingushetian MIA: torture case defendant arrested and dismissed
Accused of exceeding official powers Magomed Bekov is placed under house arrest.
The Magassky District Court placed Head of the Sunzhensky District Police Department Magomed Bekov under house arrest for 2 months. In addition, as reported by Kommersant, the policeman was removed from office. It is noted that the policeman did not come to the previous session of the court, where the issue of preventive measure was considered, without notifying it of the reason for his absence. Bekov is a figurant of the criminal case of beating and torture at the Center for Combating Extremism of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ingushetia (MIA СCE). The criminal case against him was initiated under Art. 286 of the Criminal Code (Exceeding Official Powers).
Recall that in July 2016 in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ingushetia during the interrogation upon involvement in a robbery attack on a bank in the village of Sunzha a 50-year-old suspect died. Then it was found out that the employees of the MIA СCE tortured a married couple. From 39-year-old Maryam Dalieva and 50-year-old Magomed Daliev they demanded confessions in robbing the office of Rosselkhozbank. During the forcing interrogation, the man died right in one of the offices of the Center. The death of Daliev was first explained by a heart attack, but later during the investigation it turned out that he was still strangled. According to the investigators, it was the Head of the Sunzhensky District Department of the MIA, Magomed Bekov, who ordered to detain and deliver to the department Magomed Daliev and his wife Maryam "without legal grounds".
Head of the Center for Counteracting Extremism Timur Khamkhoev and his subordinates are charged upon high-profile case. As for Khamkhoev, a criminal case has also been instituted for robbery. According to the lawyer of the victims, Kheda Ibrieva, Magomed Bekov has the same responsibility for what happened, as Timur Khamkhoev. According to her, Daliev's story is not the only one, when the Head of the Sunzhensky District Police Department "rudely violated the law." "Two years ago, Magomed Bekov illegally pursued a human rights activist and oppositionist Magomed Khazbiev, who was thrown into the house by the police during the search, which resulted in a criminal case," she said.

Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
