Detained GUEBiPK employees are defendants in Sugrobov's case
According to sources in law enforcement agencies, anti-corruption officers of the MIA Central Board Alexander Sobol and Sergey Abramov interrogated as accomplices upon the General Sugrobov’s case.
More details became known about the reason for the detention of two GUEBiPK employees Alexander Sobolev and Sergey Abramov. According to Interfax, policemen were conveyed at the Investigative Committee for questioning as suspects.
According to a source, it is referred to the previously initiated criminal case of Provocation of Bribery (Article 33 and 304 of the Criminal Code) within the high-profile case related to former GUEBiPK Head Denis Sugrobov. It is known that Sobol was the defence witness at the trial of General Denis Sugrobov. GUEBiPK was raided on 8 December and there were detained two employees associated with so-called "torpedos", i.e. operatives, who under the guise of businessmen or interested customers come to the officials and provoke them to take bribes or kickbacks.
Later it was reported that detention might be connected with the case of Zemlyane ex-director Sergey Cherenkov, who was convicted for the sell of the seat in the Edinaya Rossiya party and the State Duma for $ 1.5 million to QIWI group of companies Head Andrey Romanenko. The lawyer of Cherenkov, Mikhail Trepashkin, in conversation with TASS noted that upon this case agent Vadim Alferov was also detained. Then, the lawyer said that the detention of Abramov and Sobol is unrelated to ex-Head of GUEBiPK Denis Sugrobov's case.
There is no official data on detention's reasons.
Recall that Sugrobov and nine of his subordinates are charged with Organizing a Criminal Community (Art. 210 of the Criminal Code), Exceeding Official Powers (Art. 286 of the Criminal Code), as well as Provocation of Bribery (Article 33 and 304 of the Criminal Code). According to investigators, security forces officers tried to substitute the FSB officer, in particular, they planned to pass themselves off as businessmen and offer to take them "under the roof" for 10 thousand dollars a month.
Hearing of the Sugrobov’s case takes course behind closed doors in the Moscow City Court for 9 months. The debate started on December 5. On December 7, the state prosecution filed a motion for Sugrobov's 22-year imprisonment.
