MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Domodedovo airport police chief Maxim Titov has denied exceeding authority, saying the accusations were revenge of his subordinate he had dismissed.
Investigators said the airport police used force beating up five citizens in April 2012. One of the injured parties suffered moderately grave harm to health.
"Of course, he'll deny the charges; it’s pure provocation based on the testimony of a subordinate whom Titov dismissed; and now this subordinate is taking revenge in this manner," the police chief's lawyer Vadim Lyalin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
Titov is due to be officially charged later in the day, but the lawyer said he had not been notified.
On Wednesday, an Investigative Committee official said "evidence of Maxim Titov's involvement in the crime has been gathered. He is accused of exceeding his authority /Article 286, Part 3 of Russia's Criminal Code/.”
Also on Wednesday, transport police said they were running a check into the incident.
Titov is in custody for 48 hours.
