Materials of the criminal case against Ex-Deputy Head of the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Department T Dmitry Zakharchenko are classified as secret. This was announced today at a hearing by judge Elena Lenskaya.
In addition, she reported that the term of criminal investigation extended until 8 June. Before that period the arrest of Colonel-billionaire is extended too.
Previously, the CrimeRussia wrote that in respect of the former policeman another criminal case of bribery was initiated. It will be combined with the existing one. Zakharchenko himself pleaded not guilty.
Recall Dmitry Zakharchenko was taken into custody in early September 2016 on charges of abuse of authority and obstruction of the preliminary investigation, as well as on charges of taking bribes in the amount of 7 million rubles ($120.000). In November, it was revealed that accounts of some third parties for a total of $16 million were arrested in the Zakharchenko case. The accounts were opened after the Colonel’s arrest.
Rosfinmonitoring (Federal Financial Monitoring Service) analyzed the data of the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers and discovered thousands of offshore companies through which the Russians laundered billions of rubles. Materials on deputies and governors were handed over to law enforcers.
A spokesperson of the Prosecutor's office said that the ECHR had not studied all the materials of the criminal case, so they were offered not to overturn the verdict, but to send the case for a new review in court.
