Vor Irakly Rostovsky who abdicated thief’s title is defendant under ‘anti-thief’ article
Recently, the thief in law has been kept in the Moscow Center for temporary detention of foreign citizens.
Thief in law Irakly Dzhabua, known as Irakly Rostovsky, has become another defendant in a criminal case under the new criminal article 210.1 of the Russian Criminal Code (Occupation of the Highest Position in the Criminal Hierarchy).
A number of media sources have reported on this. Previously, Irakly Rostovsky was prosecuted for robberies and swindling.
As of recent, he has been kept in the Moscow Center for temporary detention of foreign citizens. He faces up to 15 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 5 million rubles ($74,948).
It is noteworthy that in 2014, Irakly gave up his title, although he did it with a barrel in his mouth. According to reports, it was thief in law Merab Mzarelua who initiated the reprisal, and his son Kiko managed the situation on the spot. After that ‘conversation’ in the woods, Irakly was badly injured.
