An appeal to the Investigative Committee of Russia by the brother of a 23-year-old policeman from Buryatia, found guilty by a court of assault on a man detained on suspicion of stealing an expensive ATV and sentenced to 3 years, is circulating in the media and in social networks. The brother of the police officer thinks that he is innocent.
The criminal case into abuse of authority by a police officer was investigated by the Buryatia Republican Major Crimes Investigations Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia. As a result of the investigation, it was sent to court and on the basis of the collected evidence a verdict was passed, which was upheld by the court of appeals and entered into legal force.
Given the incoming public appeals to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation on this criminal case, the head of the Committee instructed the head of the regional division of the Investigative Committee of Russia Sukhorukov V.V. to report on the criminal case investigated, the evidence collected on it and previously taken decisions on the applicant's arguments.
