Main suspect in murder of investigator Shishkina seeks asylum in Georgia
The hacker admitted to hacking into the ticket sales system of the Russian Railways and S7, with which he earned about $ 250,000.
Yaroslav Sumbayev, 28, from Astrakhan, who is the main suspect in the murder of investigator Yevgenia Shishkina in the Moscow Region, asked the Georgian authorities to grant him political asylum. The young man pleaded guilty to a cybercrime and using a fake passport, but denies involvement in the murder, according to Interfax.
Sumbaev was detained at the beginning of November by the Georgian law enforcement agencies on charges of using a fake passport and illegal acquisition of firearms. Sumbaev pleaded guilty only regarding the first crime.
In Russia, the fugitive is considered the leader of a hacker group that hacked into ticket sales systems for the Russian Railways and S7 and earned about 17 million rubles ($ 250,000) reselling the tickets. This criminal case was investigated by Yevgenia Shishkina who was shot dead on October 10 near her home. Before that, her phone received threats allegedly from Sumbaev’s account.
The hacker admitted to committing the cybercrime, but denied his participation in a criminal group, as well as in the murder of the investigator. When Sumbaev is extradited to the Russian Federation, he may be sentenced to death penalty, said the detainee’s lawyer Zurab Todua.
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.
