Russian Police Officers Arrested For Using Polish Plane Crash Victim’s Credit Card

June 6, 2010

Russia (ChattahBox) – Three Russian police officers have been arrested after using a credit card belonging to a man who died during a Polish plane crash in April.

Andrezej Przewoznik headed a committee that monitored historic sites, and was headed to a commemoration ceremony for the thousands of soldiers murdered in Poland under the orders of Joseph Stalin.

He died on the way in a plane crash that killed 96 people, including Polish President Lech Kaczynski.

Three riot police officers managed to get their hands on a bank card owned by Przewoznik, and withdrew 6,000 zlotys ($1,700.00 USD) from his account.

“Three members of the OMON (riot police) who committed this disgusting act were quickly arrested thanks to co-operation between the Polish Security Agency and the Russian special services,” Pawel Gras, a spokesman for the Polish government said in an official statement.

The incident highlights continued corruption within the police force, which has been a major cause for concern within the country of Russia.

    Bobby — And the point of them faking credit card fraud would be….? These were three minor policemen on the raid force. They could have gotten the credit card any number of places, and then used it knowing the man was dead and had a fair amount of money, given his job. Do you think there is some greater conspiracy at work? If so, it seems a rather shallow and pointless one, and a hell of a stretch. That is why conspiracy theories so often get no credit; the explanation is put against others much more logical.

    Bobby – But your point was based on the notion that the remains and everything in the plane was incinerated. Which isn’t necessarily true. It is actually fairly common to see things like wallets, a scrap of cloth, a limb, ect. surviving a devastating fire. The bodies were badly burned, but there were enough to the remains to send to Moscow for viewing.

    My guess is upon searching the bodies for identification, the random odd and end not completely destroyed was put somewhere to aid in naming the bodies. Then, one of the three officers took a credit card that was among the largely unharmed items, and they tracked down who it belonged to. Then, they used it. Simple, and while a disgusting act on the part of the three men, not a sinister plot.
