Moscow region: Ruza investigator goes on trial for proposal to close criminal case for bribe
Pavel Matyuhin estimated his work in a few million rubles.
Former investigator for priority cases of the Ruza MID ICR in Moscow region Pavel Matyuhin is accused of attempted fraud.
According to the investigation, Pavel Matyuhin contacted a local businessman, against whom criminal proceedings for fraud were opened. The investigator suggested the merchant to hush up his case for several million rubles. In April 2016, the businessman handed Matyukhin 2 million rubles, but the deal was held under the scrutiny operatives. The investigator was detained immediately with the money on hands.
Subsequently, the investigating authorities have found that the briber tried on. Matyuhin had no the opportunity to influence the course of investigation of the case against the businessman, because it was removed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs. With regard to the extortionist a criminal case is opened under part 3 of Art. 30, part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Attempted Swindling).
The case materials have been removed to the Ruza Court for trial. Matyuhin expects the first court hearing being under house arrest.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
