A criminal case of Failure to Discharge the Duties of Bringing up a Minor (Art. 156 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated against the resident of the Omsk region, who tied her 10-year-old son to a pole in the shed for skipping school, the regional MIA and ICR departments report.
It is reported that a fourth-grader from the village of Lyublinsky skipped lessons on May 15 and told his mother about it. Then the woman beat the boy with a belt, tied him to a pole in the shed, put socks in his mouth, and tied it with a gauze bandage, after which she turned off the light and closed the shed for the night. It is noteworthy that the 19-year-old sister of the boy helped her.
There is no heating in the shed; the boy was not wearing any shoes, and his clothes was not warm enough. The boy managed to free himself and get out through the window, after which he went to his friend and told him about the escape. The mother of his friend called the police. The injured child was sent to the social rehabilitation center, the doctors verified his injuries.
The police noted that the boy was characterized positively by school teachers and peers; there were no complaints about his behavior. Previously, the family did not come to the attention of the law enforcement bodies. The ICR is holding a preliminary inquiry into Torture (Art. 117) and Illegal Deprivation of Liberty (Art. 127).
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
