Dato Krasnodarsky prosecuted under anti-thief act following fellow bosses
David Dzhangidze is known as the Krasnodar underboss.
The Kuban thief in law, David Dzhangidze (Dato Krasnodarsky), is prosecuted under the “anti-thief” article No. 210.1 (“Occupation of a high position in the criminal hierarchy”), Komsomolskaya Pravda reports citing sources in law enforcement agencies.
“The security forces have enough information suggesting that Dato Krasnodarsky holds a high position in the criminal hierarchy. He has the criminal status of the so-called "thief in law", has power over those who adhere to the criminal ideology and has organizational and administrative responsibilities. He also keeps criminal traditions and customs, has criminal experience and dominance in the Krasnodar region,” the source said.
Dzhangidze, 35, is known as the Krasnodar underboss. He was vetted in Rome in June 2013. In 2014, the boss was detained for extortion in Adygea, but he managed to avoid punishment. In addition, he was convicted of robbery and drug trafficking (part 2 of Art. 161; part 2 of Art. 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
In 2018, Dzhangidze was nabbed with drugs. The Sovietsky District Court of Krasnodar sentenced him to three years in a penal colony. Eventually, the regional court softened the sentence on the lawyer’s complaint. Dzhangidze was released in the courtroom after he got the credit of his remand prison time.
