Ulan-Ude: Retired MIA officer convicted of breaking policeman's nose
The district court of Ulan-Ude has issued convictions against retired police officer for beating a law enforcement officer.
The investigation and the subsequent trial revealed that on January 8 last year, a drunken rowdy was brought to a police station. The violent detainee turned out to be an ex-policeman who had retired from service. A police officer, who was producing paperwork, made a remark to the rowdy, and the latter, in response, inflicted several blows to the face of the Interior Ministry officer and broke his nose with a fist.
After this incident, a criminal case was initiated against the rowdy under Use of Violence Against a Representative of the Power. The court reviewed all the materials in the case and gave the ex-policeman 4 years of suspended sentence and a probation period of 3 years. In addition, the court ordered him to pay 135 thousand rubles (2.4 thousand dollars) as moral compensation to the injured.
It is noteworthy that after the perpetrator fully admitted his guilt and began to cooperate with the investigation, the injured policeman asked the court to mitigate the punishment for his offender.
