Senior officers Nikandrov and Maksimenko are brought in indictment
Senior investigators are charged with taking a bribe on an especially large scale.
The first Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the Russian Investigative Committee in Moscow Denis Nikandrov and the Head of the Main Directorate for Inter-departmental Cooperation and Internal Affairs of the Russian Investigative Committee Mikhail Maksimenko are brought in indictment of taking bribes in an especially large scale.
Note that both of the accused did not plead guilty, but refused to give any testimony, referring to the 51-th article of the Constitution, which gives the right not to incriminate oneself and loved ones.
On Wednesday, Denis Nikandrov sent a claim for defamation to Life edition.
Recently, charges have recently been brought against the other defendant of the case – the Deputy of Maksimenko Alexander Lamonov. Lamonov did not plead guilty too.
According to investigators, all persons, involved in the case, provided protection to thief in law Shakro Molodoy for large scale bribes.
Businessman Badri Shengelia – a ‘professional witness’ and notorious figure of criminal St. Petersburg – won’t help the law enforcement authorities anymore in their struggle against corruption, banditry, and internal intrigues. The professional ‘work’ of the killers has drawn a line under his controversial life and left plenty of questions to the investigators – because persons interested in this murder can be found literally everywhere, including their own agency.
