The Presnensky court of Moscow arrested Anzor Shulay until 6 November.
The Presnensky court of Moscow has defined the measure of restraint in the form of arrest for a period up to November 6th for the Deputy Head of Investigative Branch of Lefortovo Police Department Anzor Shulay. According to the investigation, the policeman illegally awarded 7 million rubles, using his official position.
Investigators believe that Shulay illegally appropriated the seized in a criminal case funds in the amount of 7 million rubles. To cover up his crime, the Head of the Investigative Department conspired with the victim in the same criminal case and convinced him to give a false testimony for a cash consideration in the framework of investigation. The man had to announce that he had been stolen not 400 thousand rubles, but 10 million rubles, as well as to falsify a receipt, confirming the fact of belonging to him this amount. The man refused to help the police to assign millions, and surrendered him to his colleagues.
