Greek fighter from Olympic team caught stealing elite cars in Moscow
In Moscow, a member of the Olympic team of Greece in freestyle wrestling has been detained.
The 31-year-old athlete is charged with stealing luxury cars in the capital.
The man was detained by officers of the criminal investigation department in the North-Eastern District of Moscow and taken to the police department for the Marfino district. According to law enforcement bodies, Georgios Papadopoulos has created an organized crime group in Moscow, specializing in car thefts. It is noteworthy that the man had previously visited the Russian capital as part of the Greek national team for joint training on free-style wrestling with Russian athletes.
Law enforcers established that Papadopoulos used to be the leader of a car theft gang. Their cars of interest were the SUVs BMW X5 and X6. At the same time, the man would regularly visit Greece to make copies of keys from expensive cars. Upon returning to Moscow, he and his accomplices were able to steal dozens of cars by means of analog keys.
Then the athlete would distribute the stolen cars to chop shops, or put them on sale with forged documents.
A criminal case under Theft has been initiated against the man. At the same time, Papadopoulos does not plead guilty. In addition, he told the police that he is officially employed in the Greek national team and receives salary as an athlete.+
The law enforcement agencies are currently identifying Papadopoulos's associates.
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.
