Senator Arashukov detained elegantly and without Hollywood scenes, Matvienko
According to the Federation Council speaker, the representative from the KCR did not try to escape from the parliament meeting.
Federation Council chairwoman Valentina Matvienko described the detention of senator Rauf Arashukov, who is accused of two murders and participation in his father’s organized criminal grouping, as elegant. According to her, Arashukov was shocked and did not try to escape from the meeting room, Matvienko told in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“The senators unanimously supported the decision to remove Arashukov’s immunity, everything happened in a civilized manner, according to the law, without Hollywood scenes, everything was done elegantly, beautifully and properly. No handcuffs, no escape. There were no acts of violence, people in masks, nothing like that. Three intelligent young people, tall, slender, very charming, in blue beautiful suits and ties just went next to him to the exit,” Matvienko said.
Arashukov’s detention was held during a closed meeting, at which Prosecutor General Yury Chaika read a report on the criminal activities of the parliamentarian from Karachay-Cherkessia. The senator was taken into custody for two months. The investigation accuses Arashukov of being involved in the killings of deputy head of the public youth movement Adyghe-Khase Aslan Zhukov and Fral Shebzukhov, the adviser to the president of the KCR, as well as participation in the organized criminal grouping of his father Raul Arashukov and pressure on the witness of Zhukov’s murder.
