Minsk riot policemen rob people
7:42, — crime
Four riot police officers will be tried for violent robbery.
A criminal case against four now former riot policemen was opened on the initiative of the Main Organised Crime and Corruption Department and the Internal Security Department of the Interior Ministry, Yezhednevnik reports.
Four officers of Minsk riot police (two staff sergeants and two sergeants) were considered to be among the best policemen and were highly praised by commanders. They are charged with robbery with violence not dangerous to life or health of an injured person or an attempt to use violence committed for the second time or by a group of people (part 2, article 206 of the Criminal Code).
The inquiry was launched in May 2013, but the criminal case has not been initiated until recently. During the inquiry, the riot police dismissed the robbers by mutual agreement, not for the committed offences or the actions discrediting the police, which is usual in such cases.
Only one of the suspects used the time properly and fled. He is on the wanted list now. The rest former policemen were detained and are giving evidence.
Two cases of stealing 3.8 million and 1.5 million rubles from two Minsk residents are being investigated. It's possible that the number of victims can increase. Investigators try to figure out how long the riot policemen were robbing people.
