Dymovsky: Inquisition At Court/ Coming “Apology” To Putin On You Tube

Posted by Info on 25/03/2010

“I will post an ‘apology’ on YouTube on the Day of Cosmonauts (April 12) to [Interior Minister] Rashid Nurgaliyev and [Russian Prime Minister] Vladimir Putin. But I am afraid they will not like it. Then I will come out with concrete accusations of corruption.” said Alexei Dymovsky, a former Russian police officer who posted two videos on the web calling for a nationwide crackdown on police corruption told another video is on the way.
He was fired shortly after posting his claims, has been charged with fraud and abuse of office, which carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.

“We will fight till the end. What was happening in Novorossiysk’s Primorskiy Court can only be described with the word ‘inquisition.’
I had asked to have a closed session so that I could present secret documents which prove I am right. But Federal Judge Raisa Konstantinova rejected my requests he felt “sorry” he had not posted the videos earlier.

The reputation of the Russian police force has declined dramatically in recent years. In just over 18 months, Russian police officers have been convicted or charged with burning a suspect to death, shooting sprees, a beheading, and rape.
