Missing case of Shakro Molodoy on OCG creation found in MIA
Story about an old case against the kingpin Shakro Molodoy going missing at the ICR came to light two weeks ago; under this case, authorities intended to hold him accountable under Article 210 of the Russian Criminal Code (Сreation of a Сriminal Community) one year ago.
The ICR Main Investigations Directorate for Moscow was responsible for case file preparation. However, case materials were first referred to the Investigative Committee for the Central Administrative District, and then — to the ICR Investigation Department in the Tagansky district, where they disappeared.
Case file disappearance is associated with the intervention of the General Denis Nikandrov, who is currently in a pre-trial detention center along with other ICR senior officials Maksimenko and Lamonov on suspicion of bribe-taking from Shakro Molodoy.
Today, Rosbalt reported that the missing case file had been found. According to the news agency, materials of the case about Shakro Molodoy creating a criminal community were found during an inspection in one of MIA administration offices.
It turned out that before being referred to the MIA Administration in the Tagansky district, case materials had been renumbered. Materials with the new numbering were then sent to the MIA General Administration in Moscow, and later — to one of the departments for combatting economic crime, where inspectors found them.
Let us recall that this case is devoted to the illegal seizure of Golden Palace casino and hotel complex, which is now under the control of Shakro Molodoy's henchman Konstantin Manukyan. Upon returning from Spain, the thief in law used the hotel as his office.
The suspicion that the thief in law Shakro Molodoy's interests at the ICR were protected by the General Denis Nikandrov had been aroused after investigation into a number of cases involving three high-ranking ICR officers, who were arrested on charges of bribe-taking from Shakro Molodoy. According to investigation, Denis Nikandrov, Mikhail Maksimenko and Aleksandr Lamonov received a bribe in the amount of 1 million dollars from Zakhar Kalashov via intermediaries. In exchange for this bribe, the ICR officers were to assist in the release of Shakro Molodoy's associate Andrey Kochuykov nicknamed the Italian, who had been arrested for taking part in a shootout at Elements Cafe on Rochdelskaya street in December 2015 in Moscow.
The Russia’s Investigative Committee central office has taken the case of former Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Marat Oganesyan for investigation. However, the St. Petersburg’s Investigative Committee dept (regional dept where the case had been investigated previously) did not find state budget damage in the Zenit Arena fraud case.
Among his accomplices are a lawyer, who presented himself as the plenipotentiary of the self-proclaimed republic in the International Criminal Court with the United Nations, and an entrepreneur, already serving a sentence for attempting to seize a building.
