Two Kaluga (Russia) Police Officers Face Extremism Charges

Two police officers in Kaluga, Russia face extremism charges, according to a January 28, 2010 report by the Regnum news agency. According top prosecutors, on  September 27, 2009 police detained two citizens of
Uzbekistan on administrative charges. The two officers then allegedly assaulted the Uzbeks out of racist motives.

Prosecution of police officers under hate crimes or extremism statutes is extremely rare in Russia, despite widespread reports of racial profiling and police violence against minorities. The officers then allegedly forced
other detainees to assault the Uzbeks, threatening to hurt them if they didn't. The officers also face charges of "exceeding official authority"--the closest equivalent to a torture statute in the Russian
Criminal Code. If convicted on all counts, the officers face up to 15 years in prison.
