One of Ded Hasan’s scandalous godchildren fails his main test in prison
Such an outcome of Arakelyan’s criminal career was quite predictable — his coronation was considered questionable by his fellow criminals.
One of legendary Ded Hasan’s godchildren has lost his thief’s crown. According to an informed source, the kingpin Artyom Arakelyan, better known as Artyom Lipetsky, recently stopped at the Butyrka prison, where he failed to defend his title at the first full-time meeting with Seryozha Bentley and Levan Paradze. However, such an outcome of Arakelyan’s criminal career was quite predictable — his coronation was considered questionable by his fellow criminals.
Unable to answer simple questions like "Who knows him as a thief?" and "Who approached him as a thief?" Artyom Lipetsky was then beaten by his two opponents.
Arakelyan was transferred to the Butyrka prison on suspicion of murdering the underboss of Chaplygin. The CrimeRussia has repeatedly reported on this issue. The main part of the plot there was the coronation of Artyom Arakelyan, which was almost ruined. Investigators believe that he organized the abduction and murder of his long-time rival Sasha Abbas. This underboss of Chaplygin (a town in the Lipetsk Region - Ed.) learned of Arakelyan’s upcoming coronation and disclosed the incriminating evidence that would not allow him to become a crowned thief. In response, Arakelyan decided to act decisively and used the services of a notorious criminal Denis Panin, who was rumored to be a friend of the late Grandpa Hassan. On January 9, 2012, Sasha Abbas' body was found in a rainwater reservoir near the village of Sgonniki. Meanwhile, Arakelyan gained the coveted crown, and then was arrested together with Panin.
The cases materials have already been handed over to the Moscow Regional Court for examination on the merits. By the way, according to some reports, Arakelian has mobilized all of his financial resources to ruin the case at the initial stage. However, after personal intervention of the ICR Head Alexander Bastrykin (he was visited by the wife of the deceased) the investigation was unstuck and the matter was brought to court.
The billionaire colonel who held the post of head of the regional Economic Security Department, and then Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department for more than 12 years, kept his 1 billion ($15.2 mln) in bank accounts.
