IRKUTSK, November 29 (Itar-Tass) — A district court in Irkutsk, a major city in Eastern Siberia has passed a guilty verdict on three former policemen who beat up a victim of a street brawl in the police department, a spokesman for the Irkutsk region Investigations Committee told Itar-Tass.
In October 2011, unknown young men beat up a resident of the village of Markovo who was standing at a bus stop. They made a getaway from the scene of their offense, while a police patrol crew delivered the beaten-up victim to the police department.
It turned out in the course of subsequent investigation that the police officers started beating the man again already at the station. Some time later the 'custodians of lawfulness' let him go without filling out any protocols on the incident.
The victim filed a petition with the investigation agencies, which established that three officers of the Interior Department No. 5 had been involved. They were identified as the local police inspector Ivan Shipitsyn, 28, investigator Vassily Zagorian, and patrol service inspector Yevgeny Glatsunov.
Upon the clarification of all the circumstances of the incident, all the three officers were fired from the Interior agencies.
"All of them have been found guilty of a crime punishable under Clause 286.3 of the Russian Criminal Code -- abuse of occupational duties," the Investigations Committee spokesman said.
Shipitsyn has been sentenced to a jail term fo 4 years two months, Glatsunov to 3 years 6 months, and Zagorian to 3.0 years. The sentences are suspended.
