Kaliningrad prosecutor fired for briber became Governor Belykh’s lawyer
The Kirov Governor Nikita Belykh’s lawyer himself is under investigation and travel restrictions from Kaliningrad.
Later, the lawyers have managed to appeal the sentence of the former prosecutor. In April 2016, the case was sent back to the court. Volokha himself was released on travel restrictions.
At the same time he was placed in the register of the Chamber of Attorneys of the Moscow Region. The corresponding number for him was secured on April 20, 2016.
The prosecutor's office of the Kaliningrad region has already claimed that an investigation will be carried out as Volokh being under travel restrictions got to Moscow and now defends the Governor Belykh in court.
Nikita Belykh was detained in Moscow on June 24, 2016. According to the investigators, the Governor personally and through an intermediary received a bribe on a large scale for a total amount of 400 thousand euros (24.1 million rubles). On the eve, the Moscow City Court upheld his detention until 24 August. He is charged under p. 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (bribery in especially large amount).
The Governor does not plead guilty. At the hearing on the pre-trial restrictions, Belykh said that he "never received any bribes and was not going to."
"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.
