Irkutsk region: ex-Deputy of Transport Prosecutor detained in case of $345.000 bribe
Earlier in the same corrupt case there were detained Head of the MIA East Siberian linear Department and Head of the MIA Department of Transport of the linear station Irkutsk-Passenger.
Security forces detained former Deputy of the Transport Prosecutor of the Irkutsk region Karapet Gevorgyan. He is suspected of receiving multimillion rubles bribe.
Note that Gevorgyan was dismissed from the prosecution on reaching the maximum age of service on 26 February. At the same time, according to local edition Babr, the dismissal of the Transport Prosecutor ensued in a hurry, when the department knew of the impending arrest.
The former Deputy of the Transport Prosecutor is involved in the case of a bribe amounting to 20 million rubles ($345.000). The investigation believes that Gevorgyan together with accomplices promised the free movement of goods by rail to the head of one of the commercial organizations specializing in the transportation of petroleum products for the many millions of recompense. Previously, in early February 2017, upon the corrupt case there were detained and arrested Head of the MIA East Siberian linear Department Alexey Rakultsev and Head of the MIA Department of Transport of the station Irkutsk-Passenger Grigory Prokofiev.

As Babr notes, Gevorgyan is not only an accessory in the crime, but the leader of an organized crime group specializing in knocking out bribes. Sources say that Gevorgyan was ratted out by previously arrested Rakultsev and Prokofiev. Informants do not exclude that in connection with the detention of former Deputy Prosecutor and his interrogation the number of defendants in criminal proceedings will increase.
"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.
