Moscow police suspected of raping Russian Organization for Intellectual Property lawyer with shovel shaft
A criminal investigation has been launched.
Moscow police are investigating a violent rape of a Russian Organization for Intellectual Property lawyer. Four former police officers are suspected of doing it, according to the ICR.
During the investigation, the police searched the Russian Organization for Intellectual Property and confiscated documents that had to do with the victim’s job. The victim is a former Russian Organization for Intellectual Property employee. The suspects violated the victim due to the latter’s rudeness, according to the preliminary theory.
There was another similar case. Vladimir, one of the former heads of the Russian Organization for Intellectual Property, was raped with a shovel shaft half a year ago, according to the Mash Telegram channel. The perpetrator allegedly was Aleksandr Kustov, a Zukovskoe police station employee. Kustov claimed the victim once was rude to him. Kustov nursed a grudge against him and hired three acquaintances to get even. The acquaintances were police officers.
The officers learned where the victim lived and ambushed Vladimir inside his apartment house in late November. They first pepper-sprayed him, then beat him, then raped with the shaft.
Vladimir was taken to hospital with a concussion, a chemical burn of an eye cornea, a blunt abdominal injury, and injured colon. He had to go through several complicated surgeries and is still undergoing medical treatment. His attackers were arrested and pleaded guilty.
MIA Directorate in the Moscow Region Internal Affairs Department head Igor Sobol and the MIA Directorate in the Northern District of Moscow confirmed that four Moscow region police officers may have been involved in the crime. The four attackers were dismissed.
The Timiryazevsky District Court ordered suspects to jail.
For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
