Investigative actions are carried out within the criminal proceedings launched against the authorities and staff of traffic police regarding the unjustified imposition of administrative sanctions on AutoMaidan social movement activists and other peaceful protesters.
"The investigators are currently seizing computers used to create the reports with respect to the activists. We are also searching for documents that would confirm that the authorities of traffic police forced subordinates to commit unlawful acts, namely create fake protocols against participants of protest actions," head of the investigation department of Kyiv prosecutor's office Vitaly Brovko said.
It should be reminded that the investigation department of Kyiv prosecutor's office has recently referred to the court 15 indictments against members of the capital's traffic police who illegally brought the drivers participating in AutoMaidan to administrative responsibility.
The law enforcement officers are charged with committing crimes under Part 1 of the Article 366 (forgery by an official) and Article 340 (illegal obstruction of organization or holding of meetings, rallies, marches and demonstrations) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
