Shakro Molodoy passed polygraph test
Lie detector shows that Zakhar Kalashov is clean as a whistle before the law.
The criminal authority Zakhar Kalashov, known as the kingpin Shakro Molodoy, was checked on a polygraph. The expertise on the polygraph was held within the framework of the ICR senior officials bribery case (Denis Nikandrov, Mikhail Maksimenko and Alexander Lamonov).
The lawyer of the General Nikandrov Anton Matiushenko told Life that Kalashov passed a psycho-physiological examination using a polygraph a few days ago.
"The polygraph showed that he did not give a bribe to investigators," - Matiushenko said.
However, lie detector’s results do not witness on an innocence of the kingpin. Obviously, Shakro Molodoy transferred money to ICR officers through an intermediary; therefore, the polygraph did not caught Kalashov in a lie.
A Life’s source said that the polygraph evidence could be recognized by the court as an additional evidence in the case.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, the ICR senior staff Denis Nikandrov, Mikhail Maksimenko and Alexander Lamonov were arrested on suspicion of taking bribes of $1 million (all officers were to receive $5 million) from Shakro Molodoy. For the agreed amount investigators had to release from prison a comrade of Kalashov Andrey Kochuykov (Italian), who was placed into the pre-trial detention center on charges of extortion 8 million rubles from the owner of the Elements restaurant in Moscow.
A new person turned out to be complicit in the high-profile incident in the center of the Russian capital that involved some thieves in law, mafia bosses and pop stars. It is Magomed Ismailov, the famous MMA fighter.
In the Irkutsk region a scandal connected with information about the arrest of deputy chairman of the administrative court Nikolay Novokreshchenov due to $134.155-bribe-taking runs high; Sergey Shishkin, an adviser to the region's Governor, mentioned it on the radio interview. The court the detention of the deputy chairman is refuted, but unofficial sources in law enforcement structures confirm.
