Six persons of interest in case of torture in Ingushetia MIA Dept
Defendants of the case, in addition to Abuse of Authority, were charged with Extortion by a group of persons.
Six officers of the republican center for combating extremism were detained in Ingushetia. This was reported by Head of the Republic Yunus-Bek Yevkurov. He noted that they are all arrested and under investigation.
It is to be recalled that in December 2016, on suspicion of involvement in robbery, Head of the Center Timur Khamkhoev was detained. At the same time, it was reported that the operatives of the FSB also detained three of his subordinates, including his deputy. Later, it transpired that the criminal case was initiated under the Art. 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (commission by an official of actions which transcend the limits of his powers and which involve a substantial violation of the rights and lawful interests of individuals). The point is that the staff of the Center for Combating Extremism tortured people, in some cases with a fatal outcome. One of the operatives is also charged with murder.
Now, it transpired that the charges were added with Extortion committed by a group of persons on a preliminary conspiracy (Art, 163 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, on July 15, 2016, the officers of the MIA CPE of Ingushetia tortured a married couple – 39-year-old Maryam Daliyeva and 50-year-old Magomed Daliyev – to get confessions on robbing Rosselkhozbank in the city of Sunzha. The man died right in one of the offices of the Center. During the investigation of the criminal case, new victims began to appear, who had previously been silent.
The victims and their relatives intend to seek to unite their cases of torture in the CPE into single criminal proceedings.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
