Kemerovo region: FSB makes searches in regional Government and extortion case defendants' offices
Defendants in the new high-profile case become high-ranking officers of the Investigative Committee and the Kemerovo region Government.
ICR investigators together with employees of FSB territorial divisions carried out searches in places of residence and service of the defendants in the case of extortion.
The ICR informed that the investigation and proceedings to establish the circumstances of the crime began. The question of raising charges and the measure of restraint choice is currently being addressed.
Earlier, it became known that a criminal case was initiated against senior officers of the ICR in the Kemerovo Region - the Investigation Department Head of the ICR in the region Sergey Kalinkin, the Deputy Head of the second department for investigation of priority case of the ID ICR in the Kemerovo region Sergey Kryukov and the senior investigator of this Department Artemiy Shevelev.
In addition, in this case the charge put on Acting Heads of the Governor in the Kemerovo region Alexey Ivanov and Alexander Danilchenko, as well as a number of officials and businessmen, who extorted assets priced at not less than 1 billion rubles from the owner of a coal business.
In exchange for 12 million rubles ($202 thousand), Kirill Tabakov has ensured the release of third persons of their right to a number of real estate units in the center of Nizhny Novgorod to be replaced by a business class hotel.
According to the defense of ICR officers Nikandrov, Maksimenko, and Lamonov, arrested on suspicion of bribery, Denis Bogorodetsky has broken the crime scheme to the prosecution. The lawyers believe that due to this, the witness turned into a suspect a year after their clients.
Father of the former acting head of the MIA GUEBiPK (General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption) Viktor Zakharchenko, who is currently also under arrest, is the manager of the accounts in question. However, the ICR has information that the сolonel-millionaire has also had direct access to them.
