Maksimenko transferred from mental hospital back to Lefortovo
Defendant in the case of bribery from the thief in law Shakro Molodoy, the high-ranking ICR officer Mikhail Maksimenko has been escorted back to the Lefortovo detention center from the Butyrka jail's mental hospital.
Maksimenko spent the last 4 days there.
This was reported by the accused's lawyer Aleksandr Vershinin, who managed to meet with his client, give him a food parcel, as well as discuss a number of issues with the Head of the detention center and his deputy after several days of Maksimenko's detention in Butyrka. Vershinin also talked with the doctor of the detention facility.
According to the lawyer, unlike in Butyrka, guards in Lefortovo were behaving correctly and politely.
The Head of the ICR Interagency Cooperation and Private Security Administration has been in custody in Lefortovo since July 19. He is accused of bribe-taking on an especially large scale from members of the criminal community along with ICR senior officers Denis Nikandrov and Aleksandr Lamonov.
Activists of Transparency International Russia believe that the ban on the importation of meat from Belarus is dictated by the interests of domestic suppliers of beef. One of the potential beneficiaries is a company, which board of directors includes the daughter of Sergey Dankvert.
