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.
Clouds are gathering over the ICR general. His former subordinate Aleksey Kramarenko, arrested in late 2017 in the case of a bribe to high-ranking ICR officers from thief in law Zakhary Kalashov, has revealed the involvement of his former immediate superior in the corruption episode.
