Amur Duma member caught with 8 kg of drugs
The marijuana was found in the territory of a backyard of a house of the member of the Congress of People's Deputies.
The Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee of Russia in Amur region has initiated a criminal case under item 2 of article 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal Acquisition, Storage, Transportation, Making or Processing of Narcotic Drugs) against a Duma member from Mikhaylovsky district’s settlement of Novochesnokovo. The investigation theory is that the representative of the Congress of People's Deputies whose name is not being disclosed kept marijuana in his house. More than 7.7 kg of drugs were found in the territory of a backyard of a house during the searches by police officers. This amount of narcotic drugs is considered a large scale.
The investigative actions were carried out on October 12, 2018. The media office of the Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee has not specified why the criminal case was initiated 4 months later.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
