Maksimenko might face new charges
The CrimeRussia has already reported on new bribery charges against Mikhail Maksimenko, who is involved is an in-house war.
The FSB charged the Head of the ICR Main Directorate of Interdepartmental Cooperation and Internal Security Mikhail Maksimenko once again. He allegedly took a bribe of 1 million rubles ($17.700), reported RIA Novosti citing unnamed sources. According to them, Maksimenko was testified against by mafia-related businessman Badri Shengelia. He allegedly passed the money in US dollars to Maksimenko and a criminal case on theft of an elite Hublot watch from the entrepreneur had to be initiated in return.
The investigators are interrogating Maksimenko's subordinates, whom he sent to St. Petersburg to carry out an inspection. According to the Fontanka, the Hublot was seized from Shengelia by law enforcers after a thieves' gathering was dispersed in November 2014. About 30 people gathered at Nevskaya Zhemchuzhina restaurant on Obukhovskoy Oborony Prospekt that day. Thief in law Malkhaz Kotua (Makho Ochamchirsky) was among them.
Badri Shengelia has been a witness in a number of criminal cases against St. Petersburg criminal boss Vladimir Barsukov (Kumarin) on raider seizures of buildings.
