ICR General Nikandrov complained of hunger in jail
The Lefortovo court of Moscow is now to decide whether to remand Moscow MID ICR First Deputy Head Denis Nikandrov, suspected of receiving a large bribe from people of kingpin Shakro Molodoy.
As Ren TV reported, after the court hearing, Nikandrov complained to reporters that he was not fed for 10 hours, which he regarded as torture.
According Nikandrov, because of hunger he had a headache and he could not fully protect his rights in court. Earlier, General Nikandrov complained to human rights defenders on the sharply deteriorating of eyesight that "did not allow him to learn case materials."
TASS noted that the investigation seeks to extend the term of Nikandrov's detention for three months. Earlier, the court extended the detention for up to 19 March for two other persons involved in cases of bribery by Shakro Molodoy - high-ranking ICR officers Mikhail Maksimenko and his deputy Alexander Lamonov.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
