Interrogator raped by police chiefs refuses polygraph
This was stated by the lawyer of one of the defendants, Pavel Yaromchuk, who had been the head of the migration department for the Ufa district.
Valeria Posokhova, the lawyer of one of the men accused of raping the 23-year-old female investigator, said on the TV channel Russia-1 that the victim refused from taking a polygraph test.
According to Posokhova, the defense filed a petition to have a polygraph interrogation of both Yaromchuk and the woman. “The victim, according to our information, has refused to undergo the polygraph test,” said the lawyer.
Yesterday, those involved in the rape case of the investigator were charged with rape (item (a), part 2 of Art. 131) and sexual assault (item (a), part 2 of Art. 132).
