Maksimenko arrested for vanished Shakro Molodoy’s case on gang creation
This became one of the reasons the senior Investigative Committee official has been arrested.
Mikhail Maksimenko, the Head of the Main Directorate of the Bureau of Internal Affairs of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, is suspected of involvement in the disappearance of a number of documents in the case of gang creation by Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy), which became one of the reasons the senior Investigative Committee official was arrested, the RIA Novosti said.
According to the source, the materials had disappeared before Kalashov was arrested in July, after being requested by Denis Nikandrov, the first Deputy Head of the Main Investigation Directorate in Moscow.
Meanwhile, Kalashov’s attorney Aleksandr Gofshtein said he had no idea any materials were missing.
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported disappearance of the criminal case under Art. 210 of the Criminal Code against Shakro Molodoy, who was almost brought to trial last year for taking Golden Palace casino in the early 2000s. No materials of the case could be found and no one knew where they could be.
The suspicions that the senior investigators were covering Shakro Molodoy arose from the inspections of many high-profile cases that involved Mikhail Maksimenko, the Head of the Main Directorate of the Bureau of Internal Affairs of the Investigative Committee, his deputy Aleksandr Lamonov and the first Deputy Head of the Main Investigation Directorate in Moscow Denis Nikandrov. They are suspected of taking a $ 1 million bribe from Zakhar Kalashov for the release of his partner Andrey Kochuykov (the Italian), who had been arrested after a shootout at Elements restaurant on Rochdelskaya Street in December 2015. Nikandrov, Maksimenko and Lamonov have been under arrest since July 19.
