Governor Khoroshavin’s team member declared wanted
Anatoly Makarov was under recognizance not to leave.
Anatoly Makarov, the official from former Governor of the Sakhalin region Alexander Khoroshavin’s team, suspected of corruption, is wanted. The ICR for the region reports this in an interview with TASS.
Makarov worked in the government of the Sakhalin region as the Deputy Head of the Governor's office. He is the suspect in the case over bribery in the election and was under recognizance not to leave.
According to the investigation, in 2014, before the elections in the Duma of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Mayor of the city Andrey Lobkin, his deputy Alexey Leskin and Deputy Head of the Governor's office Anatoly Makarov collected money from candidates for deputies. In return, Khoroshavin patronized the candidates and promised places in the City Duma.
Recall that Khoroshavin was detained on March 3, 2015; on March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed him in connection with the loss of confidence. According to the investigation, in 2009, Khoroshavin created an organized criminal group, whose members received bribes amounting to more than 522 million rubles ($8.1m) from eight entrepreneurs.
On February 9, 2018, the court sentenced the former official to 13 years in prison and a fine of 500 million rubles ($7.8m).
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
