Photos of Rostov police gang leader's apartment published
A house worth 40 million rubles ($687.800) is done in medieval style.
The REN-TV channel publishes a photo of apartment of former Head of Ministry of Internal Affairs Bureau of Internal Affairs in the Rostov region Colonel Nikolay Germashev, who was arrested on suspicion of Official Powers Abuse (part 1 of Article 285 of the Criminal Code). The investigation believes that Germashev used his official position to protect illegal business activities and was the grey owner of the Slinugol coal mining company.
Photos from the mansion, which cost, according to The CrimeRussia, is 40 million rubles, show a chic, almost medieval interior: a fireplace, large chandeliers, metal chairs with coats of arms. The fence of the house is made of bricks of different colors, and at the entrance there are beaten gates with gold patterns.
The Leninsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don arrested Germashev on February 3 at the request of the investigation. Investigators believe that the silovik is going to obstruct the investigation and escape from justice. It was reported that Germashev is issuing a visa. The former Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Bureau of Internal Affairs in the Rostov region was suspended from work for the time of a departmental audit, and then dismissed from service in the summer of 2017. In November, his apartments were searched.
The CrimeRussia wrote about criminal gang in the Rostov Central Board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in 2016 and 2017. Its leaders, in addition to Nikolay Germashev, were Head of the Rostov Criminal Investigation Department Evgeny Germashev and Colonel Anatoly Azarov. Evgeny Germashev was fired after an official check, and Azarov retired on seniority.
Sources of The CrimeRussia reported that the gang framed up criminal cases against Rostov policemen and extorted money from them, sometimes torturing them. In addition, rogue cops traded posts and removed ‘unnecessary people’ from the service, as well as patronized thieves in law.
