The law enforcer attended the court hearing wearing glasses, a cap, and a mask.
On Friday, November 24, the second hearing in the case of Head of the Criminal Investigations Department Ilvir Sagitov, accused of torturing detainee Vener Mardamshin, was held in Neftekamsk. This is reported by Ekho Moskvy in Ufa citing legal adviser of the Committee against Torture Evgeny Litvinov.
According to the radio station, the defendant attended the court hearing wearing a cap, dark glasses, and a medical mask. The defense filed an application to proceed behind closed doors, but the court refused to grant this request.
To recall, Sagitov and four more police officers are charged with abuse of official powers with the use of violence and weapons. The victim Mardamshin says that in November last year, he was detained and brought to a police centre, where he was put a bag on his head and beaten with truncheons. In addition, according to the detainee, he was tortured with electric shock.
Soon after the case of torture was initiated, Mardamshin was detained and accused of robbery and theft. At first, he had been sent to a pre-trial detention center, but then his penalty was reduced, and he was released.
