Former police chief of Makhachkala arrested for contacting terrorists
The defendant hinted at conflict with a high-ranking Dagestani police officer.
The Soviet District Court of Makhachkala arrested former head of the city police department Raip Ashikov, who is suspected of financing terrorism (part 1.1 of Article 205.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) for two months. The suspect will be charged within ten days. In court, Ashikov said that he had a conflict with a high-ranking Dagestan police official, Chernovik reports.
Head of the security service of the Agricultural Bank Ashikov was detained on March 30. The next day, the police arrested the alleged accomplice and former subordinate Omar Abdurashidov, who had reported torture by investigators.
In 2013, Ashikov was dismissed from the bodies after the suspicions over the killings at the law enforcement agencies.
The miraculous landing of an Airbus A321 belonging to Ural Airlines on a cornfield raised a number of questions in relation to waste landfills in the metropolitan area. The airbus struck a flock of seagulls because an illegal dump site was established not far from Zhukovsky International Airport. The CrimeRussia performed its own inquest to uncover ties between the emergency landing of the A321 and Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow Region. It turned out that dump sites, seagulls, officials of Ramenskoe, and detained thief-in-law Shishkan are links of the same chain that cannot be broken even by the law enforcement authorities. After the aerial incident, a criminal case was instituted under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of the rules for traffic safety and operation of the railway, air, sea and inland water transportation systems). But the question is: why no criminal proceedings were launched in relation to the corruption and establishment of illegal landfills?
