Director of confectionery factory Menshevik attempts to commit suicide in remand prison
Iliya Averianov has been taken to the resuscitation department.
Director of confectionery factory Menshevik Iliya Averianov - who had been arrested on accusation of murder - has attempted to commit suicide, reports 112 Telegram channel.
The businessman was in a remand prison #4. Now, he has been taken to the resuscitation department. According to the channel, he has incised wounds to the lower tighs.
Averianov had earlier put up a fight with his cell mate. The public monitoring commission reported the director of the confectionery factory had been placed in a cell along with 3 other arrested persons accused of murders, as well. Domestic conflict erupted between the factory’s director and one of them - a Chechen. The latter offered Averianov to sweep up in the cell on his own and refused to keep the place clean.
Representatives of the public monitoring commission reported Averianov had had his face smashed, bruises under both eyes, blunt traumas to the head. However, the factory’s director stated he had received the traumas due to falling from his cell’s bed.
Averianov did the shooting at the confectionery factory Menshevik in late December, last year. He killed a guard. The businessman stated he had made up his mind for a desperate move, as members of a certain organized crime group - including employees of Moscow law enforcement - took the enterprise from him by force.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
