MOSCOW, July 20 (Itar-Tass) - Two former police investigators in St. Petersburg have been charged with an attempt at selling four million rubles of five-thousand faked banknotes.
Russia’s Investigative Committee said on Friday the accused - Vasily Martynov and Boris Sabirov - both former investigators at a district police department, and also their accomplice - Dagestan-born Rinat Aibedullov - acquired the forgeries in Makhachkala and Moscow. Part of the notes 1.45 million rubles worth were sold to a local resident, who agreed to pay 660,000 rubles for the forgeries. The homes of the accused were searched and more faked notes 2.445 million rubles were confiscated.
Martynov was detained on October 23 last year in Sestroretsk, near St. Petersburg, while trying to sell a faked ink-jet printed five-thousand ruble note to a local resident for 2,500 rubles.
The investigation has been completed. Sabirov has concluded a pre-trial plea agreement.
After the bill of indictment has been approved, the case will be handed over to court.
