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.
Artur Tsybikov, who refers to himself as Deputy Supreme Shaman of Russia, is trying to justify the Zhen Tengery Yaba ritual, which caused public outrage. He noted that the head of Chechnya does the same every year, burning five camels.
After the Colonel Zakharchenko scandal, Andrey Kurnosenko and some of his colleagues were told that they were not fit for the job. However, the head of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department retained his post.
