"Go back and finish him." Beaten State Duma deputy Zhigarev's friend suspected of preparing murder
The investigation is checking this version.
The details of the scandalous case of the beating of State Duma Deputy Sergei Zhigarev have become known. As MK writes, his ex-girlfriend, the model Olga Sintyureva, who is suspected of organizing an attack, was deemed sane.
Furthermore, soon she and her accomplice Ibrahim Dudayev could be charged with a new article – the preparation of the murder. The investigation is already checking this version, an informed source told the newspaper.
According to him, the reason was the SMS, sent to Dudayev immediately after he beat Zhigarev on July 8 at Polina Osipenko Street. The message was rather brief: “Go back and finish him.”
Recall that Zhigarev began to receive blows from Dudaev, when he was squabbling with Sintyureva in his car. The Chechen pulled the parliamentarian literally by the scruff and began to beat. According to the investigation's suggestion, it was Olga who asked Dudayev to use force; according to the detainee himself, she told him that Zhigarev was her husband and often beat her, and he decided to intercede.
In addition to the beatings, Sintyureva and Dudayev stole a safe with 22 million rubles ($330,000) from Zhigarev. On the security camera, it was clear how people, who look like Olga and Ibrahim, take out the safe door, and the man is holding a box of tools in his hands.
Sweeping purge of Novosibirsk governmental structures – clampdown on corruption ties between local elite clans and their ‘patrons’ in law enforcement agencies?
Two governmental structures – judicial and watchdog agencies – have been ‘decapitated’ in the Novosibirsk region. The sweeping purge of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office was not as severe as the media had reported – but the key figures have already been removed from office. In fact, the large-scale unscheduled inspection carried out by a commission dispatched by the Prosecutor General’s Office has just begun. Who else is going to resign ‘voluntarily’? Who has initiated the sweeping purge of the watchdog authority? And what high-profile corruption cases are forthcoming?
