MOSCOW, April 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The press secretary of the Kaliningrad regional department of the Russian Investigation Committee was threatened after she had reported the opening of a criminal case opened against police officers.
“Senior assistant to the head of the Kaliningrad regional department of the Russian Investigation Committee Marianna Andryushina was threatened yesterday and told to remove from the website the report on illegal actions of certain police officers,” Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
The threats are being investigated, he said. “The Russian Investigation Committee has taken measures to ensure the security of its employee,” he added.
Andryushina said on Saturday that a criminal case had been opened over the abduction of a 26-year-old resident of the Chernyakhovsky district of the Kaliningrad region by three policemen on April 6. The man was taken to a deserted place, cuffed and beaten. The policemen put a plastic bag on his head and nearly smothered him. The victim managed to escape and reported the case to prosecutors. The police said the abductors tried to force their victim to confess a car hijack.
Markin also said that Investigation Committee Chairman Alexander Bastrykin would hold a conference and meet with Kaliningrad citizens on April 13.
