Law enforcers raided house of Chelyabinsk region ex-Governor
According to the lawyer of Mikhail Yurevich, the former Head of the region does not live at this address for more than three years.
The law enforcers conducted searches in the house of Chelyabinsk ex-Governor Mikhail Yurevich in the framework of the corruption case's investigation. Operational and investigative actions took place in the Tarasovka suburban elite settlement.
The searches were carried out by the investigators of the 4th Investigation Department of the Investigative Commetee of the Russian Federation with the support of the FSB and the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Chelyabinsk region. The Yurevich's lawyer, Igor Trunov, was surprised at the choice of the venue for the investigation.
"Quite a strange choice of the address for the search, the defendant does not live there for three years, he is registered in Moscow," Igor Trunov told Znak.com. "However, the investigation has already announced that it intends to conduct searches in the Moscow apartment of Mikhail Yurevich and in the workplace."
The lawyer says that he intends to appeal today's search, because he considers it illegal. In particular, the employees of the ICR did not allow lawyers to the investigative actions conducted in the house. In addition, today the court will consider the complaint of defenders on the investigator's refusal to admit lawyers.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, Mikhail Yurevich became a figurant of the criminal case on corruption. According to the investigation, the ex-Governor systematically took bribes from his subordinate, ex-Health Minister of the region Vyacheslav Teslenko, for general patronage. The amount of bribes amounted to 26 million rubles ($456.600). In addition, Yurevich, according to investigators, instigated Oleg Grachev, appointed to the post of the First Deputy Governor, to spread defamation about the Chairman of the Chelyabinsk Regional Court's activities.
Yurevich is currently being treated abroad. He denies all charges against him.

Leaking ‘cover’. Inquest against co-owners of Summa Group affects high-ranked enforcement functionaries
The investigation believes that the criminal community supposedly created by the co-owners of Summa Group – dubbed ‘kings of governmental acquisitions’ not that long ago – could not exist and operate so close to the circles of power without ‘patronage’ of high-ranked law enforcement functionaries. The CrimeRussia has identified the ‘circle of friends’ of ex-Senator Magomed Magomedov, who had used law enforcement structures to ‘cover-up’ financial schemes pulled off by his brother.
