Saratov’s Prosecutor was arrested for two months on suspicion of taking bribes
According to investigators, Chechin demanded a bribe of 10 thousand dollars for the termination of the criminal case.
The court arrested the Saratov's Prosecutor Vladimir Chechin for two months. Chechin is suspected of committing crimes under part 5, Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking), part 3 of Art. 30, part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Attempted Swindling).
Recall that the Prosecutor was caught red-handed when receiving money during a joint security operation of the regional FSB and the ICR. According to investigators, Chechin demanded a bribe of 10 thousand dollars for assistance in the termination of the criminal case and 750 thousand for the cancellation of the arbitration court's decision, but, in fact, he did not have appropriate authority to implement promised.
"It was a targeted killing": ICR checks powerlifter Drachev's murderer for involvement in other crimes
The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
The video shows the second episode of the fight between the powerlifter and Anar Allakhveranov, during which the murderer dealt a series of crushing blows, deliberately bludgeoning the world champion without letting him recover. According to the regional leadership of the National Guard of Russia, that same video denies the inaction allegations filed against soldiers of the National Guard.
