New episodes of bribery emerged in former Altay Region Vice-Governor’s criminal case
In the materials of the case against the former Vice-Governor of the Altai Region Yuri Denisov and his wife Tatiana, new episodes of taking bribes emerged. This was told at a press conference in the Siberian representation of Interfax by the Head of the Altai IC ID Eugeny Dolgalev.
Currently, the investigation examines the new facts. According to Dolgalev, the investigation will be completed before the end of the year.
The defendants are in pre-trial detention under the court decision until September. If necessary, the Denisovs’ arrest will be extended.
On the question of whether the former Vice-Governor and his wife admit their guilt, the Head of the Investigative Department of the Altai Region did not comment. It is to be recalled that retired at the beginning of March 2016 Vice-Governor of Altai and the Head of the regional department of education and youth became the persons of interest in the case on March 14.
Denisov was charged with attempted bribe-taking, and his wife - with bribery mediation. According to the materials of the case, the couple forced the employees of the educational institution controlled by Denisov to pay them a bribe in exchange for signing papers on the allocation of federal subsidies.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
