Thieves in law afraid to contact each other because of anti-thief law
In Russia, criminal authorities have ceased to hold "meetings" because of the fear of the new law.
The MIA has begun work on the execution of the law on criminal punishment for persons occupying a higher position in the criminal hierarchy, Rosbalt reports.
On April 5, regional divisions of the MIA were instructed to record all the information about who leads the criminal groups, and certain crime lords are also being checked. From April 8, detectives will begin to collect all the evidence base in this direction. As they say in the media, citing the source, in Russia a war has been declared to crime lords.
The source said that now the thieves in law already stopped practicing "gatherings" and communicating with each other because of rumors of a new decree.
The new law on combating the tops of the criminal world is faced with a terminological problem – there are no terms in jurisprudence: thief in law, crime lord, alpha dog, "gathering". All of them should be "given a juridical base," the source said.
Earlier, the media reported that after the adoption of the anti-thief law, crime lords began to abruptly leave their homeland. According to lenta.ru – we are talking mainly about middle-level criminals – they are most vulnerable to being detained by law enforcement officers.
