Ufa investigator who was raped by co-workers comes to face-to-face confrontation wearing mask
The lawyer of one of the accused called the investigative actions a farce.
In Ufa, a rape victim, the MIA junior investigator, came to a face-to-face confrontation wearing a medical mask and sunglasses, and a white wig was put on a witness who had to be identified, MK reported referring to a friend of the accused ex-policeman Andrey Shurukhin.
“The victim’s face was completely covered. Allegedly, she was frightened by the meeting with the witness, so she disguised herself. It was her wish,” Shurukhin said.
According to him, the witness was an acquaintance of one of the persons arrested in the case – the former head of the Karmaskalinsky MIA department, Salavat Galiyev. Allegedly, she was with the defendants and the victim from 20.00 to 21.00, after which she left for a cafe with Galiyev.
Aslyam Khalikov, who is a lawyer of the second person involved in the case, the former head of the MIA department for the Ufa District, Eduard Matveyev, called the investigative actions a farce, and the victim’s intention to file a claim for non-pecuniary damage worth 10 million rubles ($ 150,000) inappropriate.
It is to be recalled that before the New Year holidays, the court extended the arrest of Matveyev, Galiyev and the former head of the MIA’s migration department for the Ufa District, Pavel Yaromchuk, who are accused of gang rape of their 23-year-old subordinate.
Seventeen Russian Governors are facing criminal prosecution for bribe-taking. The rest of them may be jailed any time for exceedance of official powers. At least, Nezygar (@russica2) Telegram channel claims so citing an unidentified source in the law enforcement structures. However, according to that source, it is currently prohibited to prosecute top-level officials. In 2018, the operatives had only searched offices of Vice Governors or Deputy Ministers – not their bosses. The CrimeRussia found out what supreme functionaries are on the hook of the law enforcement authorities and may be immediately indicted if the President orders so.
