Death of code-bound thief Vagon: correctional colony №11 staff show video fragments
The lawyers insist that the Investigative Committee verify the circumstances of the death of the code-bound thief.
The defense team of a code-bound thief Vladimir Vagin (aka Vagon) offers to invalidate the suicide version. It is to be recalled that the code-bound thief was found hanging in the prison №11 in the city of Perm in the evening, on September 21. He did not leave the suicide note. The lawyers still can not achieve the surveillance video. The district investigator who is working on the case refused to provide the materials.
“However, we do know that the colony staff has already shown the video fragments from the colony’s hall and cell to those who are interested in it which is a sufficient basis for an internal investigation.” Kommersant quotes the lawyer Andrey Guzev as saying.
In this regard, the defense asks to transfer the records of the check into the death of Vagon to the Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee in Perm region to carry out an objective investigation.
Previously it became known that Vagon’s body was found with his knees bent, hanging by his sweater’s sleeves attached to the cell’s door - in a dead zone for the cameras.
The lawyers state that Vladimir Vagin made plans about the future and two hours before he died, shared these thoughts with one of the defense team, and the suicide was certainly not the part of the plan. Moreover, the fact that Vagon was transferred to the correctional colony №11 known as the ‘torture room’ looks suspicious. Here, another code-bound thief Maksim Novikov (aka Max Pioner) was found dead about two years ago, under similar circumstances.
The defense also insists that the Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee in Perm region to obtain the surveillance footage and identify who and why was responsible for the transfer of Vagon to the correctional colony №11.
In late June 2019, the management of Development Corporation Joint Stock Company established in 2012 on the basis of Industrial Urals–Polar Urals Open Joint Stock Company was changed. This infamous corporation was repeatedly involved in corruption scandals. Notorious oiler and millionaire Sergei Maslov was its General Director in 2013–2016. In fall 2016, Maslov was arrested for embezzlements – but somehow, the court acquitted him. Immediately after the acquittal, he relocated abroad. The CrimeRussia reviewed the main ‘failures’ of the ‘unsinkable’ corporation, shady schemes pulled off by Maslov and his partners, and connections of the oligarch who has made enormous money on governmental projects. Surprisingly, but the information presented below hasn’t attracted the attention of the law enforcement authorities yet.
