In Novorossiysk former Mayor's Office employee sentenced for bribery
The Court found guilty ex-official of the local mayor's office of accepting a large bribe In Novorossiysk
The court considered evidence against Denis Zinoviev as sufficient. It was gathered by employees of the Investigation Department of the Regional Investigative Committee on the case of bribery. The former chief specialist of the municipal administration monitoring in Novorossiysk was found guilty of Bribe-Taking and subsequent unlawful inaction (p. 5 of art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code).
According to the Investigative Committee, during investigation and subsequent trial it was established that in September last year, Denis Zinoviev during the security examination has revealed the fact of illegal construction of two-storey buildings in a remote area of Kamchatka. He knew that the administration did not give permission for the construction.
It should also be noted that this land was meant for private household. In a conversation with the owner the official said that the house was built illegally and must be demolished. At the same time, Denis Zinoviev stressed that he could not take the necessary measures if the owner will pay him 200 thousand rubles. The man agreed to this proposal, and then reported to the police about the incident.
On October 27th, 2015 the man for the second time met with the official from the city administration and gave him the agreed amount of money. Immediately after receiving a bribe Denis Zinoviev was arrested red-handed by law enforcement officials.
The court sentenced the former official to 7 years in a penal colony and a fine of 12 million rubles. In addition, by the court's decision, Denis Zinoviev for 3 years will not be allowed to work in municipal and public service.
"It was a targeted killing": ICR checks powerlifter Drachev's murderer for involvement in other crimes
The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
The video shows the second episode of the fight between the powerlifter and Anar Allakhveranov, during which the murderer dealt a series of crushing blows, deliberately bludgeoning the world champion without letting him recover. According to the regional leadership of the National Guard of Russia, that same video denies the inaction allegations filed against soldiers of the National Guard.
Earlier, Deputy Head of the State Duma Rules Committee Mikhail Romanov noted that to avoid a conflict of interest when considering Poklonskaya's declaration, the committee would be headed by its first deputy, but the situation came to an easier resolution.
