Sergey Polonsky called Colonel Zakharchenko holder of common fund
The businessman Sergey Polonsky, accused of swindling, has complained of extortion on the part of police officers.
The businessman Sergey Polonsky, accused of swindling in the amount of 2.6 million rubles in the construction of two apartment complexes, has complained of extortion on the part of the former MIA Colonel Zakharchenko’s colleagues. He also said that Zakharchenko, the search of whom had revealed billions of rubles, “held a common fund.”
“Zakharchenko was the one working on economic issues and holding the common fund, one of the common funds. Other people would come and say "Give us 10 million and we won't bother you anymore,” Polonsky said before the court hearing, which considered extending the term of his arrest.
Dmitry Zakharchenko was arrested in September 2016. During search, 8.5 billion rubles in foreign currency were found at his relatives’ apartment. Zakharchenko claimed he had nothing to do with this money and knew nothing about its origin.
Zakharchenko held the post of Deputy Head of the Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption at the MIA of Russia. The Colonel was dismissed from the law enforcement agencies following the institution of criminal proceedings.
Sergey Polonsky is a defendant in the case of swindling on an especially large scale in the construction of Kutuzovskaya Milya Moscow residential complex and Rublevskaya Rivyera country village. Investigation estimates the damage caused by Polonsky at 2.6 billion rubles.
Police officers took Kristina Morozova to a police station to check her identity, where she ended up getting a closed craniocerebral injury, minor cerebral contusion, fissure fracture of her cheekbone, fracture of her left sphenoid bone, and large leg bruise.
Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
