Special services wiretap Maksimenko-Lamonov talk right after Rochdelskaya shoot-out
From the conversation it followed that the Investigative Committee officers were preparing to replace the investigator in the shoot-out case and amend the charges for the defendants.
New details of the investigation into the case about the bribe given to high-ranking ICR employees by the men of the thief in law Shakro Molodoy have been revealed at today's hearings in the Moscow City Court. According to the investigator, as early as in December 2015, Alexander Lamonov, former deputy chief of the Main Directorate for Interagency Cooperation and Security of the Investigative Committee, told his boss, Mikhail Maksimenko, about the shootout at Elements restaurant on Rochdelskaya Street in Moscow. According to a phonoscope expertise, the words "thief in law", "Italianets" and others could be heard in the conversation. From the same conversation followed that Maksimenko and Lamonov were preparing to replace the investigator in the shootout case and amend the charges for the defendants.
As the CrimeRussia wrote previously, Mikhail Maksimenko instructed his deputy, Alexander Lamonov, to contact the officials of the local Investigative Committee to withdraw the criminal case from the district administration and pass it to the Moscow office. On March 1, the criminal case was taken out as ordered by the deputy chief of the Moscow ICR, Denis Nikandrov, with the extortion files becoming a separate proceeding and being returned for further investigation in the Central Administrative District. The separate extortion case was assigned to investigator Andrei Bochkov. According to the investigation, three high-ranking officials of the ICR (Maksimenko, Lamonov and Nikandrov) took a bribe and, in return, amended the extortion charges against Andrei Kochuykov (Italianets) that would result in a softer punishment (Art. 330, Arbitrariness), and in June 2016 helped the criminal get out of jail. However, the plans were hampered by the Department M of the FSB that turned out to have been watching the investigators the whole time.
Now, as the prosecutor said in court, seven bribery counts are being investigated in Maksimenko’s case.
Earlier it was reported that the bribe from Zakhar Kalashov's men for Italianets’ release was about $1 million. Now the case file states 500 thousand euros as the bribe value, and there is no information as to where the money is.
