Three policemen forced detainees to confess to drug possession under torture

Two suspects were taken into custody, one managed to escape from the investigation.

In Rostov-on-Don, the ICR initiated a criminal case against three former employees of the Drug Control Department of the City Police Department No. 4, whom investigators suspected of beating detainees. The former policemen allegedly forced innocent people to sign protocols on drug possession. Two were taken into custody, one escaped. All three were fired from the bodies, RegionOnline reports.

“According to the results of the service probe, the suspects were dismissed from the internal affairs bodies due to the commission of an act, discrediting the honor and dignity of the internal affairs officers,” TASS quoted a representative of the press service of the regional MIA department as saying.

According to RT, the suspects turned the department’s cellar into a torture chamber, where the detainees were stripped naked, handcuffed and beaten with batons, and threatened with firearms. Sometimes the victim was let brought to another naked detainee and photographed for further blackmailing.
