Wanted head of Dagestan Medical & Social Examinations Bureau found in Ukraine
Makhachev did not wait for the police to arrest him and fled right after it searched his house. Makhachev's deputies were accused of regularly taking bribes.
Makhachev is a deputy of the Dagestan Parliament and the head of the Dagestan Medical & Social Examinations Bureau. He fled to Ukraine, according to Chernovik's sources.
Makhachev managed to flee Russia a day after the police showed an avid interest in him. He fled to Ukraine. Makhachev has an established business in Ukraine, namely a private clinic, according to the publication's source.
Three of Makhachev's deputies and one Bureau employee were reported to have been arrested in Makhachkala. These reports were published on June 22. The following people are listed as the Bureau head's deputies on the Bureau official website: Alim Esfendiev, Kepiya Temirkhanova, and Shamsiyat Kurbanova.
Dagestan prosecutors and Russian FSB launched an inspection and ended up charging the arrested officials with four counts of bribery. The inspection was launched following a complaint by an employee of a Medical & Social Examinations Bureau, RIA Derbent reported. They accused Makhachev's deputies of systematic bribery and illegally issuing disability certificates. Bribes could be as high as $30 thousand.
The police searched Makhachev's house on May 31, as CrimeRussia reported earlier. He fled after that. Investigators suspect Makhachev of running a gang in which about 200 Bureau officials and employees of its subordinate structures were involved. The Bureau would take bribes for issuing fake disability certificates to hundreds of Dagestan residents.
It was reported in early June that Makhachev had been exposed to own a house in Slovenia, a clinic in Germany, cottages, restaurants, and malls in Makhachkala, mansions in Moscow and the Stavropol Krai, and a palace in his home village.
The amount of damage he has caused is yet to be announced. However, it amounts to about 1 billion rubles ($15.8 million) a year, investigators believe. Makhachev had a high-ranking Moscow official backing him up, investigators believe.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
