Italian claims he is to be charged with involvement in criminal group
The Moscow City Court has quashed the decision of the Tagansky Court to extend the period of detention for kingpins Kochuykov and Romanov.
Today, the Moscow City Court abolished the decision of the Tagansky Court to reconsider the arrest of Andrey Kochuykov (Italian) and Eduard Romanov. On June 16, the Tagansky Court of Moscow decreed to put the criminals in custody for two months.
At a meeting in the Moscow City Court, Italian stated that he was threatened with art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code, Organization of a criminal community (criminal organization) or participation in it.
Kochuykov and Romanov were arrested after a shootout at the Elements restaurant, where the henchmen of the criminal leader Shakro Molodoy had arrived to obtain money for Shakro’s friend. The argument quickly escalated into an armed conflict in which two members of the private security agency guests, who had come with Italyanets, were killed.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
