Interior Ministry investigators face imprisonment for cheated investors’ property impropriation
Fraudsters stole 44 apartments worth 199 million rubles ($3m).
The Tushinsky District Court of Moscow sentenced three ex-investigators of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and five businessmen to prison terms for fraud with apartments for real estate investors deceived by Energostroykomplekt-M. The convicts appropriated 44 apartments worth 199 million rubles, the ICR press service reports.
As the court found, a criminal group, using forged documents, received real estate from the Moscow treasury and the right to dispose, proceeding false co-investors to the executive authorities. In 2012, Anzhela Amzina, the former senior investigator for priority cases of the State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, received a bribe of 40.9 million rubles. In 2015, Amzina’s ex-investigators Evgeny Primakov, as well as some Sidoruk and Chernogorov received bribes in the total of 4.9 million rubles.
Amzina and Primakov were sentenced to 11 years in prison, Sidoruk and Chernogorov got seven and eight and a half years in a penal colony. Also, they must pay a fine of 20 million rubles, and they are prohibited from occupying administrative positions for 11 years after the release.
Suspended terms from three to four years were received by ex-investigator of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Sergey Kavun, businessmen Ilya Chizhanov and Sergey Korolev. Entrepreneur Anton Bordovsky received a term of five years and six months in a general regime colony.
Depending on their role in the criminal group, convicts are found guilty of fraud, bribery, forgery of documents and illegal storage of ammunition.
Earlier, the court sentenced entrepreneur Dmitry Dvoyny who signed a plea deal with the investigation to four years and six months in a penal colony. The criminal case against another person, Yuri Zhovtyak, was separated. The study is still ongoing.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
