Head of Altai's Kosh-Agach district detained for bribery gets arrested
The court has arrested Head of Kosh-Agach district of Altai Republic Auelkhan Dzhatkambaev, who had been previously detained for bribery, for 2 months. The district head is accused of taking a bribe in the amount of 3 million rubles (52 thousand dollars).
It previously became known that the district head had become a defendant in a criminal case under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (Bribe-taking on an especially large scale). The suspect was detained during the operation carried out by the Altai FSB jointly with MIA.
According to investigation, in January 2016, Auelkhan Dzhatkambaev secured Granit LLC's victory in the tender for construction of a rural school in exchange for 3 million rubles (51 thousand dollars). Following this, the construction company concluded a state contract worth 217 million rubles (3.7 million dollars).
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
