Investigation against accused of murder in Rochdelskaya Budantsev completed
Now Eduard Budantsev and his defense are studying the case papers and are preparing for the upcoming trial.
Investigative bodies have completed investigation of the criminal case against former KGB agent and lawyer Eduard Budantsev. He is accused of killing two people during the shootout near Elements restaurant in Rochdelskaya Street in Moscow, which occurred on December 14, 2015.
Currently, the investigation materials have been handed over to Budantsev for insight. Then they will be sent to the prosecutor's office for approval of the indictment, and then – to the court for consideration on the merits.
Previously, The CrimeRussia has reported that the shootout beside Elements restaurant occurred because of the 8 million rubles ($138 thousand) that the hostess of the institution, Zhanna Kim, owed designer Fatima Misikova.
On the side of the hostess was ex-KGB officer and the head of the law firm Dictatorship of the law Eduard Budantsev. The conflict turned into the gunfight.
Budantsev shot and killed two employees of the private security enterprise controlled by Shakro Molodoy. The security officers also wounded several people. After Budantsev was detained, he was brought to trial under Art. 105 of the Criminal Code – Murder of two or more persons, but later the article was changed for Art. 108 of the Criminal Code – Murder Committed in the Excess of the Requirements of Justifiable Defense.
After the shooting in Rochdelskaya, a criminal case was also filed on corruption. Under the arrest were three high-ranking personnel of the Investigative Committee: Denis Nikandrov, Mikhail Maksimenko and Alexander Lamonov. They are charged with taking a bribe from a thief in law in the amount of $1million for the release of Andrei Kochuykov from the detention center.
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
The presidential election scheduled for March 18 should be held as a holiday - the Kremlin gave such order to the regions. The Presidential Administration expects that the festive atmosphere at polling stations will increase the turnout, sources told RBC.
