General Administration for Economic Security ex-Head Sugrobov escorted to prison with no right to parole
Now the former policeman will serve his term in Mordovia.
Former Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption (GUEBiPK) Denis Sugrobov, condemned for 12 years, was suddenly escorted from the Ryazan colony to Mordovia. This is reported by Rosbalt with reference to the source.
The informed source notes that the FSIN suddenly decided to transfer the former security official. According to the source, if the Ryazan colony is considered the most comfortable place to serve a term, then conditions in Mordovia are worse. But the main difference is that Sugrobov could be released on parole from in Ryazan prison, but it's complicated to do it being detained in IK-5. It is almost impossible to agree on a release ahead of schedule, the interlocutor notes.
The reason for the emergency transfer of Sugrobov is not clear. According to some information, the ex-Head of GUEBiPK could be formally transferred as one of the former subordinates of the General, who gave testimony against him and concluded a deal with the investigation, served a term in the Ryazan colony.
Recall that Denis Sugrobov was convicted in April 2017. The Moscow City Court found him guilty of organizing a criminal community, participating in it, exceeding authority and provoking bribes - 14 criminal episodes at all.
Sugrobov was sentenced to 22 years in the colony, while the others were jailed for 17-20 years' imprisonment. The decision was appealed. In December 2017, the Supreme Court reduced the terms almost twice. Denis Sugrobov's sentence was reduced to 12 years in a strict-regime colony, and his subordinates were sentenced to 8-10 years in prison. In four years the convicts will be able to ask for the release on parole.
