Senior MIA GUEBiPK Security Officer Sergey Abramov, suspected of involvement in the case of "torpedo" provocateurs, has been arrested until January 21.
This was reported by the Presnensky Court of Moscow, noting that investigation's request to arrest Abramov for the duration of the preliminary investigation has been granted.
Abramov himself has applied for preventive measure in the form of house arrest.
As revealed by the police officer's lawyer, Abramov has been engaged in the prevention of embezzlement of budget funds allocated for the World Cup 2018.
According to investigation, the person in question and his colleagues in the Department B of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption have committed a provocation against the former director of Zemlyane band (Earthlings) Sergey Cherenkov.
Let us recall that it was earlier reported about the investigation's request to the court to arrest 4 MIA GUEBiPK officers, detained after raid on the Administration's office. Apart from Abramov, the name of Aleksandr Sobol has also been mentioned.
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of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
A federal judge other than retired Catherine Forrest will consider the case of Razhden Shulaya, who is charged with the creation of a criminal syndicate and other crimes, in the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York.
