Case of Serpukhov District head Shestun given to investigator who worked on Ulyukaev’s case
Roman Vidyukov was appointed the leading investigator.
The investigation regarding the head of the Serpukhov District, the Moscow Region, Alexander Shestun will be supervised by an investigator who was working on the case of the former Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev. This is reported by RBC with reference to a source in the Investigative Committee.
According to the publication’s interlocutor the appointed officer, Roman Vidyukov, is an investigator for especially important cases of the Investigative Committee’s first investigative department of the Directorate for investigation of especially important cases of crimes against the state authority and in the sphere of the economy.
According to the portal, the law enforcement officer worked with the Investigative Committee for Volgograd together with investigators Roman Nesterov and Denis Nikandrov, who was arrested in the corruption case in the department. Later, all three were transferred to Moscow. Under Nesterov’s leadership, Vidyukov was engaged in the investigation of the case initiated against Ulyukaev.
The publication also recalls that the operation to detain Ulyukaev was supervised by the head of the “K” department of the FSB, Ivan Tkachev, whom Shestun later accused of threats after he refused to participate in the election of a district head. Tkachev also dealt with the cases of the head of the Anti-Corruption Main Directorate (GUEBiPK) of the Russian MIA Denis Sugrobov and the former head of Mari El, Leonid Markelov.
It is to be recalled that Alexander Shestun was arrested in the case of abuse of power. The official is also checked for involvement in other crimes. RBC writes that Shestun’s case is connected with an illegal allocation of four plots of land in the village of Borisovo in 2008.
