MOSCOW, April 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Another former policeman from the Dalny police station, Denis Vasilyev, 22, was detained in Tatarstan. He is suspected under the criminal case for beating a Kazan resident in 2011, spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Markin noted that Vasilyev is suspected of abuse of power with the use of violence and special tools.
“The detectives found that on October 27, 2011 a 22-year-old Kazan resident (his data is not disclosed – Itar-Tass) was invited to the Dalny police station under the pretext of the repairs of a computer, because the latter was a programmer and had all special skills for this,” the spokesman said. “However, instead of this the policemen noted that they suspect him of money stealing, which the latter allegedly committed in the flat of his client in August,” Markin said.
The police demanded from him to confess in the robbery, and after the refusal they put the handcuffs on the detainee and “became to hit him with hands and legs and tortured after that,” Markin said. The young man “was forced to put him on recognizance not to leave the city and confess in the crime, which he did not commit.”
The former operative Vasilyev under the pretext of the 51st Article of the Russian Constitution refused to testify in the criminal case over violence against illegally detained people. “The court will try a request of the detective to put Vasilyev in custody soon,” Markin said.
The spokesman of the Investigation Committee recalled that seven people were arrested within the investigation into the criminal cases versus the former police officers from the Dalny police station. “The detectives do not rule out that the number of arrested people in the criminal cases connected with the Dalny police station may grow in the future,” he noted.
