Top of Investigative Directorate of Investigative Committee of Central District of Moscow resigned because of Shakro Young’s right hand
Three senior officials, including the head of IC ID of Moscow’s Central Administrative District Alexei Kramarenko, resigned yesterday from the Investigation Directorate of the IC on wording "voluntarily".
The cause of the volition was the criminal case under Article 286 of the Criminal Code, initiated against them by the investigators from the FSB.
According to the FSB investigators, the top staff of the ICR MID in Moscow actually ruined the case against Shakro Young’s closest assistant Andrey Kochuykov, nicknamed Italian, by exceeding their authority.
Along with the Head of the MID Kramarenko, his Deputy Alexander Khurtsilava and the investigator for particularly important cases Andrey Bychkov left their posts yesterday.
It was Bychkov, who worked on the case of the Italian, who was arrested after a shootout on Rochdelskaya Street and is known in criminal circles as the right hand of Zakhar Kalashov.
By refusing to request for an extension of Kochuykov’s arrest, he thus tried to secure his release from custody, claims the FSB.
During the interrogation, Bychkov said that he had acted on the orders of the Chief of the IC Main Directorate in Moscow Denis Nikandrov, who is currently under investigation for trying to liberate Kochuykov for a bribe in the amount of 6 million dollars.
Chronologically, the participation of those, who resigned yesterday, was the final part of the operation of Shakro Young’s criminal structures for the release of the main accused in the case of a shootout on Rochdelskaya St.
First, Shakro’s people made contact with the ICR Internal Security Directorate Head Mikhail Maksimenko and his Deputy Aleksandr Lamonov. Then, they got the General Nikandrov involved, who, after receiving the first million dollars of the bribe, has begun to take action.
The heads of ICR MID had to dismiss a case, but it was prevented by the FSB large-scale operation, which resulted in having Nikandrov, Maksimenko and Lamonov under investigation.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
