In Buryatia, two traffic police officers who are accused of abuse of authority and attempt to receive a bribe will appear before the court. According to investigators, they extorted money from a motorist.

According to the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Buryatia, the defendants on duty stopped a foreign car in the city of Ulan-Ude, after which they began to convince the driver that his car was cut and was registered illegally. According to law enforcement officers, employees began to threaten with the seizure of the car and demanded a bribe in the amount of 50 thousand rubles.

The motorist promised that his acquaintance, the owner of a car wash, would give the money. As a guarantee, the police illegally seized the driver’s passport, documents for the car and went to the car wash complex, where they not only demanded a bribe, but also decided to wash their official car for free.

The owner of the car wash had to leave money in the back seat of the car, however, he only imitated these actions. Then, when the police were about to leave, he informed them that there was no money, and he recorded the whole conversation about a bribe on his phone. DPS officers tried to forcibly take away the cell phone, however, they noticed the video cameras at the gas station and only then disappeared.

Currently, criminal cases are referred to court. Defendants face up to 12 years in prison. If the court determines the guilt of the police, they will be dismissed from the internal affairs bodies for negative reasons. Based on the results of the internal audit, the direct managers of the employees were brought to disciplinary action.
