Investigators to probe fake video on presidential election fraud
MOSCOW, March 1 - RIA Novosti. The Investigative Committee has started to look into fake videos depicting acts of fraud in the presidential election on March 4, Investigative Committees spokesman Vladimir Markin said.
Unknown individuals spread on the Internet fake videos depicting acts of fraud at ballot stations in the upcoming presidential election. Investigators will look for the origins of these videos, who made them and where, and their source of distribution.
"If investigators find elements of offense in the actions of the individuals involved in the videos' production and distribution, a criminal case might be opened," Markin said.
The Investigative Committee will also look into other materials depicting electoral violations, for example sale of absentee ballots.
