FSB and police detained suspect in extortion of $2.7m
The detainee introduced himself as a fixer, capable of mitigating charges.
Operatives of the police and the FSB conducted an operation to detain a suspected extortioner of 160 million rubles ($2.7m) from the director of a large chemical enterprise.
As official representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Irina Volk has informed TASS, the detainee is suspected of fraud on an especially large scale.
According to the investigation, the suspect became aware that the chemical industry enterprise is undergoing inspections, and numerous audits are conducted against its CEO.
According to Irina Volk, the swindler suggested resolving the issue with the law enforcers, requesting transfer 160 million rubles for further transference to officials. The director of the enterprise asked the police for help.
In reality, the swindler did not have the opportunity to influence the course of inspections, and the money was going to be appropriated; he was detained red-handed while receiving the first tranche of 20 million rubles. A preventive measure in the form of arrest has already been chosen.
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
