Head of Moscow Investigative Committee claims he is not involved in case of Shakro Molodoy
Alexander Drymanov commented on information of media about searches at his home.
Head of the Main Investigation Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia (ICR) in Moscow Alexander Drymanov declared that he has no status on the case of bribery. At the same time, several investigators of the Moscow Central Board of the Investigative Committee are involved in this case.
“I am the Head of the Main Investigation Directorate of the ICR, this is my status”, Drymanov told RBC, adding that he continues to operate normally.
In their turn, representatives of the ICR denied information about the visit of staff of the Federal Security Service in the house of the Head of Main Capital Directorate of the ICR.
According to official representative of the department Yulia Ivanova, Drymanov is at his workplace and no investigative events are held regarding him.
Earlier it was reported that the Federal Security Service carried out searches in Drymanov’s home and a country house in connection with the case of so-called ‘Shakro Molodoy's investigators’, of thief in law Zakhar Kalashov. In particular, First Deputy Head of the Main Investigation Directorate of the ICR in Moscow Denis Nikandrov, Head of the ICR Main Department of Interdepartmental Interaction and Security Mikhail Maksimenko and his deputy Alexander Lamonov are suspected of bribe taking from the criminal leader.
According to investigators, in May 2011, Vorotnikov ripped off several sock caps from uniformed policemen, threw them on to the roadway and stroked over the police officer's head twice during an unsanctioned rally.
