Kizilyurt: Criminal Investigation Department head is suspect in swindling case
A lieutenant colonel extorted 100,000 rubles ($1.6 thousand) from a victim promising not to open a criminal case.
A criminal case was opened against the Kizilyurt criminal investigation department head for violation of article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code.
The police lieutenant colonel is suspected of attempted swindling through his official position, according to the Office of Public Affairs of the Russian Investigative Committee Republic of Dagestan Department.
The suspect threatened a local resident to open a criminal case against her mother, according to investigators. He demanded she paid him 100,000 rubles for him not to do it.
The money was handed to an intermediary under supervision of the police near a traffic police station on July 4. The intermediary was arrested.
The investigation continues. Investigators are gathering evidence. Court is deciding what pre-trial restrictions to impose on the lieutenant colonel.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
