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.
Rosfinmonitoring (Federal Financial Monitoring Service) analyzed the data of the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers and discovered thousands of offshore companies through which the Russians laundered billions of rubles. Materials on deputies and governors were handed over to law enforcers.
A spokesperson of the Prosecutor's office said that the ECHR had not studied all the materials of the criminal case, so they were offered not to overturn the verdict, but to send the case for a new review in court.
