The Moscow District Military Court has confirmed legality of arrest of former FSB officer Vladislav Novikov, who is accused of receiving bribes from Turkish construction company Esta Construction for solving he problem with builders-illegal immigrants. This was reported by his lawyer Dagir Khasavov.
Thus, the court refused to satisfy the appeal of the Novikov’s defense and upheld the decision on his detention. “The arrest term is set to 6 November”, - said the lawyer, as RIA Novosti reports. Another defendant of this criminal case is an acting FSB officer Karen Krayukhin.
According to the investigation, after Federal Migratory Service inspected a building site of the Esta Construction company, administrative proceedings were initiated and a large fine appointed. Company’s lawyer Valerian Kochergin turned to his friends Novikov and Krayukhin with a request to transfer administrative punishment from the legal entity to a functionary of the company. In this case the amount of a penalty could decrease from 37,6 million rubles to 100 thousand rubles.
The investigation believes that Novikov and Krayukhin demanded 5 million rubles for the assistance.

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.
