Former investigator Oskanov not admitted taking bribe of $ 5 million
Former law enforcement officer Adam Oskanov said in the court that the charges against him are based only on assumptions.
Ex-investigator of the Interior Ministry Adam Oskanov, who is accused of $ 5 million bribe-taking from Fintrastbank's management, claims in the court that he is innocent.
A hearing on the case of Oskanov took place on Friday, January 13, at the Moscow Basmanny Court. "I do not admit the blame, this charge is based only on assumptions," - said the former officer.
Meanwhile, the prosecution insists that the ex-employee of the Investigative Division of the Fourth Department of the Interior Affairs Oskanov began to extort $ 5 million from the management of the financial institution during the investigation of the theft of state funds by companies, which accounts were opened in Fintrastbank. The application on Oskanov was written by chairman of the bank Alexander Timoshenko, after which all the negotiations of extortion carried out under his control.
Defendants in the criminal case, who are also under arrest, are lawyer of the International Bar Association Eurasian Union Jakub Gorchkhanov, entrepreneurs Ibrahim Hamurzaev and Igor Sukhoverkhov, who are accused of attempted mediation in bribery.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
