Europe is waiting for Nodar Tbilisi
The ‘thief-in-law’ crowned in 2012 was involved into creation of an international ‘mafia-like’ organized criminal group, money laundering, a series of thefts, and extortion.
The CrimeRussia became aware that yesterday the Tagansky Inter-district Prosecutor’s Office has authorized the detention of Nodar Aloyan, a thief in law known as Nodar Tbilisi, who was arrested in Moscow. As reported earlier, the 37-year-old Georgian crowned thief is sought by Interpol as per requests from France and Belgium. Authorities of the two countries suspect that Aloyan, who used to live in France for some time, was involved into creation of an international mafia-like organized criminal group, money laundering, a series of thefts, and extortion.
The authoritative fugitive was arrested in the central part of Moscow by the General Administration of Criminal Investigation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, National Central Interpol Bureau of MIA, and ZUBR Special Police Force operatives.
According to the CrimeRussia source, Nodar Tbilisi was crowned in the fall of 2012 in France, together with Merab Tbilisi, Musa Ingush and Dato. Aloyan moved to France after being criminally prosecuted in Georgia for keeping a pistol. A year and half ago the thief in law has relocated to Russia.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) of Russia has been rocked by new scandals. Several regional FPS bosses and Nikolai Barinov, a former deputy head of the agency, have been detained for bribe-taking. What could be the consequences of these high-profile arrests for the penitentiary service as a whole and for its Director Gennady Kornienko?
