Accomplice in Reymer’s case sentenced to 3.8 years behind bars
Martinov is believed to be an accomplice to larcenies in the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia (FSIN). The investigation into the activities of Alexander Reymer, ex-head of FSIN, is ongoing.
The Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow found businessman Nikolay Martinov guilty of fraud of especially large scale (part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reports that a major accomplice in the ‘Reymer’s case’ was sentenced to 3 years and 8 months in a penal colony and fine of 500 thousand rubles. The state prosecution asked for 4 years behind bars.
To refresh background: Martinov is believed to be an accomplice to larcenies in the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia (FSIN). In the period of 2010–2012, an organized criminal group involving Alexander Reymer, ex-head of FSIN; his deputy Nikolay Krivolapov; Viktor Opredelenov, director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Center for Information and Technical Support and Communication” of FSIN; and businessman Nikolay Martinov, have stolen budget funds allocated for electronic control of inmates. The bracelets were purchased at prices inflated by several times (128 thousand rubles for a set instead of 19 thousand), and the total damages exceeded 2.7 billion rubles.
FSIN has signed a contract, without a tender, with NPF META Limited Liability Company registered in Martinov’s name, after which Martinov paid 140 million rubles in cash to Reymer for this favor.
During the investigation, the businessman repented, admitted his guilt in full, and actively collaborated with the investigators. The case against him has been segregated for separate handling.
Reymer declines all charges against him. He is accused of fraud for 2.7 billion rubles. The investigation of the Reymer’s case is still ongoing.
"It was a targeted killing": ICR checks powerlifter Drachev's murderer for involvement in other crimes
The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
The video shows the second episode of the fight between the powerlifter and Anar Allakhveranov, during which the murderer dealt a series of crushing blows, deliberately bludgeoning the world champion without letting him recover. According to the regional leadership of the National Guard of Russia, that same video denies the inaction allegations filed against soldiers of the National Guard.
Earlier, Deputy Head of the State Duma Rules Committee Mikhail Romanov noted that to avoid a conflict of interest when considering Poklonskaya's declaration, the committee would be headed by its first deputy, but the situation came to an easier resolution.
