ICR General Nikandrov left in custody for 3 more months
The Lefortovo Court of Moscow has held a session to elect a measure of restraint for General of Justice Denis Nikandrov, suspected of receiving bribes from the kingpin Shakro Molodoy.
The investigation had requested to extend the arrest for the First Deputy Head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow. As reported by the court's Press Secretary Ekaterina Krasnova, the court has granted the request.
Earlier, on December 14, the court remanded the senior ICR officers Aleksandr Lamonov and Mikhail Maksimenko, as well as thief in law Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy), who had been detained along with Nikandrov, in custody.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
