Police could not charge mob Akhmed Sutuly with drug possession
Thief in law Akhmed Yevloyev is arrested for the second time for the last 1.5 years. Both times he is charged with storing drugs on a large scale.
Many strange circumstances are contained in the investigation of criminal cases against 45-year-old Ingush thief in law Akhmed Yevloyev (Dulat Yolu), better known as Akhmed Sutuly.
As The CrimeRussia wrote earlier, Yevloyev was imprisoned for two months. He is accused of possession of drugs. The kingpin was detained, and the apartment in Eden residential complex was searched. 3.4 grams of heroin were found and seized. At the same time, the lawyers of the kingpin pointed to the absence of the primary evidence - the protocol of seizure of drugs.
Akhmed Sutuly was arrested in January 2017 on a similar charge. He was detained in the Moscow restaurant Chayhana Al-Halal, where the thieves' gathering was held. Then he also got drugs. At the trial, investigators testified that when they saw Sutuly in a restaurant they "came and introduced themselves," which his entourage disliked. However, the operative video did not prove the testimony of the siloviki.
Lawyer Dmitry Lipatov said: "They surrounded the table and put everyone on the floor, handcuffed and searched. Subsequently, all the detainees were released except Dulat Yolu. In the report, the siloviki noted that they had found a packet of drugs. The police report sated that the drug was taken from a small inner pocket of jeans trousers. But Yolu wore jeans, which did have the small pocket. This fact was registered by investigators in the SIZO when inspecting clothes."
The defense also asked for a full record of live video, but only a 20-second video was shown, it was broadcasted on federal channels. According to the testimony of witnesses from the side of the defense, the siloviki conducted a survey for at least 20 minutes.
In addition, the gathering was called differently. Some said that it was a special operation, others talked about a routine check of operational information.
Once free, Sutuly gave an interview with NTV. He told journalists policemen planted drugs.
Sweeping purge of Novosibirsk governmental structures – clampdown on corruption ties between local elite clans and their ‘patrons’ in law enforcement agencies?
Two governmental structures – judicial and watchdog agencies – have been ‘decapitated’ in the Novosibirsk region. The sweeping purge of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office was not as severe as the media had reported – but the key figures have already been removed from office. In fact, the large-scale unscheduled inspection carried out by a commission dispatched by the Prosecutor General’s Office has just begun. Who else is going to resign ‘voluntarily’? Who has initiated the sweeping purge of the watchdog authority? And what high-profile corruption cases are forthcoming?
