Man Alleging Russian Police Corruption On YouTube Arrested

January 23, 2010

Russia (ChattahBox) – A police officer who came forward on YouTube with a video accusing the police force in Russia of being corrupt has been arrested for fraud and corruption.

Alexei Dymovsky posted a video on YouTube in November of last year, accusing fellow officers in his hometown in southern Russia of arresting innocent people to make quotas.

He later released a statement saying that he knew that others on his force would wish to silence him and seek revenge for his exposure of their alleged illegal activities.

He appealed directly to Vladamir Putin to do something about the corruption, and days later Russia’s Interior Minister came forward and admitted that the countries police had become runners of a criminal agency.

Despite this, Dymovsky now faces a maximum of six years in prison.
