Crime lord Shakro Molodoy left in pre-trial detention center after proclamation of judgment
The offender is an essential witness in another case against one of the former chiefs of the Investigative Committee.
After thief in law Zakhary Kalashov's sentence entry into legal force, the criminal is still held in the Krasnaya Presnya SIZO in Moscow. The convict gave testimony that prove guilt in bribery of former head of the ICR department in the Central Administrative District Alexey Kramarenko, Rosbalt reports.
Kramarenko is under arrest, and Kalashov is listed as a witness in his case, but status can be changed. Also, investigators may hold a new interrogation of the thief in law. Last year, the court sentenced Kalashov to 9 years and ten months in prison for extortion.
Kramarenko appears in a corruption case in which other former high-ranking officers of the ICR, Denis Nikandrov, Alexander Lamonov, and Mikhail Maksimenko, have already been convicted, and within which former Head of the Moscow ICR Alexander Drymanov was arrested. In total, 14 defendants are in the case.
Seventeen Russian Governors are facing criminal prosecution for bribe-taking. The rest of them may be jailed any time for exceedance of official powers. At least, Nezygar (@russica2) Telegram channel claims so citing an unidentified source in the law enforcement structures. However, according to that source, it is currently prohibited to prosecute top-level officials. In 2018, the operatives had only searched offices of Vice Governors or Deputy Ministers – not their bosses. The CrimeRussia found out what supreme functionaries are on the hook of the law enforcement authorities and may be immediately indicted if the President orders so.
