Moscow, 01 August, 2013
Investigators have launched nationwide inspections of markets for corrupt ties to law enforcement after President Vladimir Putin criticized Moscow police officers for standing idle while their colleague was severely beaten at a market on Saturday.
Police officer Anton Kudryashov was left in need of brain surgery after the attack near Matveyevsky market in the city’s west by Khalimat Rasulova and her husband, Magomed Rasulov, natives of the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan. The pair have said they were combative because police were detaining Rasulov’s cousin, 18-year-old mentally disabled Magomed Magomedov, in connection with the rape of a 15-year-old girl.
The police officers who were present during the violent clash but did nothing to stop it now face negligence charges, with Putin hinting that their inaction pointed to a bigger issue: corruption between police and sellers at markets.
