Петербургские Полицейские Подвергли Задержанного Пыткам, А После Сбросили Его В Реку

Posted by Info on 16/03/2011

Само преступление было совершено еще в Международный женский день, однако известно о нем стало только сейчас. За какое правонарушение в пригороде Петербурга Пушкине задержали мужчину, впоследствии ставшего потерпевшим, до сих пор неизвестно. По его словам, местным сотрудникам правоохранительных органов в праздник, видимо, крайне потребовались деньги.

Пушкина схватили на Госпитальной улице и доставили в отдел милиции, где подвергли пыткам. По данным следствия, стражи порядка, избивая мужчину, требовали у него выкуп — 50 тысяч рублей. Взамен обещали не привлекать к уголовной ответственности и немедленно отпустить. Однако мужчина платить отказался.
В служебном помещении его скрутили, погрузили в машину и вывезли в Тосненский район Ленинградской области. Там раздели и сбросили с моста в реку.
Получивший тяжелые побои и добрался до берега, где его обнаружили жители ближайшего поселка. На «скорой» доставили его в больницу.

14 марта прокуратура возбудила уголовное дело по ст. 286 ч. 3 «Превышение должностных полномочий с применением насилия». Злоумышленникам из 83-го полицейского участка, согласно закону, грозит наказание — до десяти лет лишения свободы.

Kyrgyzstan Ready To Open Russian, U.S. Antiterrorism Training Centers

Posted by Info on 16/03/2011

President Roza Otunbayeva: “Two objects may be created, both U.S. and Russian. There is nothing bad in this, we should be pragmatists. We are ready to get instructions on fighting terrorism, we have no experience in these issues.”

“[Some] constantly try to oppose these countries on our territory,” Otunbayeva said. “In Europe and in the United States, I was asked about the relations with Russia,” she said. “There is no doubt that Russia is our strategic partner and ally.”

Otunbayeva was approved as the country’s new leader in a referendum in June after large-scale protests that ousted former Kyrgyz president Kurmanbek Bakiyev in April last year. The political situation in Kyrgyzstan stabilized after the country elected a new parliament and approved Otunbayeva as president for a transitional period until 2012.

Azerbaijan: Dozens of Peaceful Protesters Convicted

Posted by Info on 16/03/2011

Azerbaijani courts have sentenced at least 30 people who took part in peaceful protests to between 5 and 8 days in prison in late night trials that were closed to the public. The rallies on March 11 and 12, 2011, in the wake of the mass protests in the Middle East, protested government corruption and called for the Azerbaijan leadership to resign.

“Azerbaijani authorities should immediately set free those detained for supporting the protests in Baku,”
said Rachel Denber, Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch.Instead of jailing peaceful protesters, the authorities should be investigating police conduct during those rallies.

Over a two-day period, the police rounded up about 100 people in downtown Baku who had intended to or who had participated in the rallies. Most were held for a few hours and released after police took statements from them, but courts sentenced at least 30 people to administrative – or misdemeanor – detention, on charges of disobeying police orders or participating in an unsanctioned rally.
