BARNAUL, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — Former road police chief of the Altai resort town of Yarovoye Sergei Vlasenko has been given a 26-month-suspended sentence with one year probation for crimes in office, an official the regional department of the Federal Security Service /UFSB/ told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
A criminal case was opened against Vlasenko in early 2011 over illegal issue of a driving license to the citizen whose driving license had been suspected by a court ruling.
"A search at Vlasenko's apartment found many license places and driving licenses. Detectives also ascertained that the data of a person who had lived and died in another Russian region had been used in drawing documents, the FSB said.
The local road police chief fled to Germany when the investigation was in progress. Interpol issued a wanted notice for him. He was detained and extradited to Russia.
