Former Head of Moscow investigative Committee Drymanov faces new charges
Investigators verify information about the involvement of the General in the illegal initiation of criminal cases and the prosecution of apparently innocent people.
Ex-head of the ICR in Moscow Alexander Drymanov, who is accused of taking bribes, faces a new criminal case, TASS reports citing its sources in law enforcement agencies. Investigators verify information about the involvement of the General in the illegal initiation of criminal cases and the prosecution of apparently innocent people.
According to the interlocutor of the agency, we are talking about frame-ups. “There are victims, some witnesses, but it is necessary to check and establish whether there were frame-ups,” said a source. There is no official confirmation of this information.
General Drymanov is accused of taking a bribe on an especially large scale (part 5 and part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). He is involved in the case of the bribe, which thief in law Zakhar Kalashov, also known as Shakro Molodoy, offered to high-ranking ICR officers for the release of his assistant Andrey Kochuykov (Italyanets) from the SIZO. Drymanov was arrested on July 17. The arrest was later extended until December 16.
The air squadron number one in Russia ended up in the center of yet another scandal. It turned out that its special purpose aircraft are used, in addition to the national leaders, by outsiders. Uninvited passengers travel, stay in best hotels, and dine in deluxe restaurants at the budget expense. In fact, the discovery of stowaways on board is not the first scandal involving Russia Special Air Group that has been in distress for almost three years already. Why cannot the supreme FSB commanders using the official airplanes along with the Russian President sort out this mess?
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
