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.
