MOSCOW, October 22 (Itar-Tass) - After a brawl at the Matveyevsky marketplace in western Moscow, where the group of traders attacked several policemen and beat up one of them, the first guilty verdict was handed down on the policemen, who did not curb the beating of their fellow policeman.
The court has found former officers of the police patrol service in the district Ochakovo-Matveyevskoye Vladimir Cherezov and Yuri Lunkov guilty of negligence and sentenced both of them to one year in prison each.
“The detectives found that the non-fulfilment and improper performance of their duties by the police officers, who should have curbed the brawl to say the least, allowed Magomed Rasulov to beat an operative from the criminal search department, who was detaining a suspected rapist and then to escape from the crime scene,” Markin said.
He noted that this is the first results of investigation in the incident at the Matveyevsky marketplace.
“The investigation of several criminal cases continues, including the criminal case versus former deputy police head in the district Ochakovo-Matveyevskoye Stanislav Solovyev, who is accused of taking a bribe from the traders at the Matveyevsky marketplace,” Markin noted.
He also added that the investigation continues in the criminal case against Magomed and Khalimat Rasulovs, who are accused of the attempt on the life on an operative of the criminal search department. “The criminal case against Magomed Magomedov, who is accused of raping an underage girl, is at its final stage,” the spokesman noted.
Inspector of the police patrol service Lieutenant Vladimir Cherezov and police driver Senior Sergeant Yuri Lunkov were on duty at the marketplace Matveyevsky in western Moscow during the detention of a suspected rapist by the operatives. When the relatives of the detainee began putting up resistance to operatives from the criminal search department and then began beating brutally operative Anton Kudryashov, the policemen on duty at the marketplace did not take any measures to curb the illegal action, detain and bring the attackers in the police station, the detectives believe.
Finally Magomed Rasulov (who beat up the policeman and also became a defendant) escaped from the crime scene. He was detained only on the next day. His wife Khalimat Rasulova was detained on suspicion of involvement in this crime.
