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.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
