LSDUZ, YFYAU9 and impunity
The Court did not affirm the claim of the Anti-corruption Foundation (the FBK) to Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography (Rosreestr), which had kept closed names of Chief State Prosecutor’s sons Artem and Igor Chaika in the open database under alpha-numeric encodings. The anti-corruption campaigners promised to appeal against the dismissal of the claim.
Tagansky Moscow Court denied a commencement of the FBK's claim against Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography (Rosreestr) due to a concealment of socially important information. The FBK considered references of Chief State Prosecutor’s sons Artem and Igor Chaika in the open database as socially important information. In early June, they were replaced by special pass-through codes – LSDUZ and YFYAU9. The FBK reported they intended to appeal against the dismissal of the claim.
Earlier, they reminded that the information from Rosreestr can be classified only by a court decision, so manipulation with opened databases is a transgression of a law. Soon after reporters learned about replacing the names of the Chief State Prosecutor’s children to codes in Rosreestr’s database, mathematics laboratory’s staff of the Polytechnic Museum reevaluated the algorithm, by which codes were created. By using it, Meduza created a virtual application Check your name in Rosreestr, which allows finding the same code corresponding to the name of each user.
Earlier, the FBK revealed in the databases of Rosreestr references of 12 properties owned by the Chaika brothers, including two townhouses on Rublevka of Igor Chaika, each of which costs about 2 million dollars. Prior to that, it was reported that in the similar manner there were hidden references to the ownership of Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, of the family members of the Head of the Ministry of Defence Sergei Shoigu and presumptive Putin’s son-in-law Kirill Shamalov from opened databases. Instead, there has appeared a record in extracts "Natural person. No meaning".
In May it was reported that the FSB’s bill, which permits to classify the information about owners of real estate and transport, was frozen by the Russian authorities. Then the FBK claimed that as a result of manipulation with Rosreestr’s extract officials no longer needed it.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
