Investigators in Moscow City shootout to be checked for bribe-taking
Earlier it was reported that the seven senior investigators for particularly important cases had been pointed out the incompatibility with the positions they had held and were offered to resign.
The central office of the ICR will check the investigators of the capital’s central board of the ICR, who investigated the criminal case of a shootout in Moscow City on November 17, 2017, “for signs of a crime in their actions, as provided for by Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking)." This was told by the source in law enforcement agencies to the TASS news agency.
A previously informed source of Interfax became aware of the dismissal due to the unsatisfactory course of the investigation into the case of the skirmish of seven investigators for particularly important cases of the Main Investigative Department of the ICR for Moscow. Mash also claims about the resignation of two of their leaders - the head of the department for the investigation of particularly important cases, Dmitry Pavlov, and the deputy head of the Main Investigative Department of the ICR for Moscow, Sergey Sinyagovsky, who oversees this department.
According to the Interfax source, in the course of the investigation, the composition of the accused changed, which made the management question the objectivity of the investigators.
In this regard, several employees of the first department for the investigation of particularly important cases of the Main Investigative Department of the ICR for Moscow were at once told that they did not correspond to their positions and were asked to resign on their own initiative. After that, immediately, seven investigators of the first department for particularly important cases wrote a collective letter of resignation, but the personnel service of the ICR did not give it any progress, since the document was incorrectly drafted.
Recall that the high-profile incident occurred at the Crystal BallRoom restaurant in the Oko tower of the Moscow City complex at the end of November 2017, at the time when the gangland businessman Dmitry Pavlov, known by the name Pavlik, was celebrating his anniversary there. 80 waiters were invited to hold the event, there were more than 260 people, among whom, according to The CrimeRussia, there were quite a few representatives from the criminal world.
The conflict began in the parking lot, then spread to the building itself. As a result of the shooting six people were injured, one of whom later died from his wounds. The cause of the incident was a Mercedes from the motorcade of Gavrila Yushvaev, which blocked the entrance to the building.
At first, the investigation considered that the conflict was provoked by the oligarch Gavrila Yushvaev’s guards, Magomed Ismailov and Eldar Khamidov, who were arrested on suspicion of hooliganism, attempted murder and illegal arms trafficking. But then the version of the investigation changed dramatically – the wounded employees of the FSUE Okhrana, who were hired to protect the hero of the day, became suspects in unleashing the conflict. A criminal case on hooliganism was also initiated against Dmitry Yakobson and Kirill Titorenko who participated in the shootout. In order to achieve objective results, the central apparatus of the ICR is investigating a criminal case of a shootout again.
