ULYANOVSK, June 25 (Itar-Tass) — Four former drug control policemen, who planted drugs on citizens in the Ulyanovsk region, were sentenced from 4 to 13 years in prison.
They were found guilty of using fake evidence, fraud and abuse of power, senior aide to the head of the regional investigative department, Alexander Sorokin, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Investigators found out that from February to June 2010 drug control officers planted drugs on suspects, while an investigator from the criminal group fabricated evidence of guilt.
As a result of these actions six persons were brought to criminal responsibility. Five of them spent a long period in prison, Sorokin said.
