40+ criminal cases to be initiated following murder of mother of many children in Krasnodar region
The Prosecutor's Office quashed the decision to refuse to initiate proceedings.
The Prosecutor's Office of Mostovsky district of Krasnodar region has canceled more than 40 decisions on refusal to initiate criminal cases, the Office’s press service reports. The reason for the cancellation was the incompleteness of the verification activities and the violation of the Criminal Procedural Code.
Such measures were taken after a mother of many children was murdered in the village of Psebay on the night of May 13 to 14. Two suspects have been detained as part of this case. One of them, a 16-year-old teenager, has pleaded guilty.
In the wake of the murder, local residents organized a rally demanding to protect them from criminals. After that, checks began in the village’s law enforcement bodies, as a result of which Head of the MIA Main Directorate in the Krasnodar region Vladimir Vinevsky was disciplined. In October, when he turns 60, Vinevsky may leave his post. Several high-ranking police officers have been fired. ICR Head Aleksandr Bastrykin has taken personal control of the investigation.
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.
