'Khabarovsk flayflints' to be tried under 4 articles, including animal cruelty
ICR has completed investigation into the criminal case of 'Khabarovsk flayflints'; the final version of indictment will soon be submitted to the court for further consideration on the merits.
Investigative bodies have completed investigation into the high-profile case of 'Khabarovsk flayflints'. Two young sadists and their friend have been charged under four articles of the Russian Criminal Code. All three of them will face trial after becoming familiar with the investigation materials.
According to the Investigative Committee of Russia's official representative Svetlana Petrenko, the persons involved in the scandalous and sensational case have been charged under Robbery, Cruelty to Animals, Public actions expressing obvious disrespect towards society and aimed at offending religious feelings of believers, and Incitement of Hatred or Enmity.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, last summer two sadistic minor friends posted photo and video materials depicting animal abuse in a social network. After the public learned about their 'amusements', the investigating authorities case took on the matter. It turned out that the friends took the animals ‘to good hands,' and then brutally tortured and killed them, recording everything on camera.
During the investigation, one of the defendants actively demonstrated her insanity, thus hoping to avoid prison.
Svetlana Petrenko also added that to date, the investigating authorities have gathered sufficient evidence to support the guilt of those involved in the case. After they become familiar with the investigation materials, the case will be referred to the prosecutor's office for indictment confirmation, and then to the court for consideration on the merits.
Unnecessary witness. Death of penitentiary service lieutenant colonel Viktor Shevchenko: Suicide or murder?
Two events occurred in close succession in the Irkutsk region. On February 11, 2018, it became known that major general Anatoly Kilanov, Head of the Regional Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, was removed from office. The main suspect in an anti-corruption inquest carried out in late 2017, Kilanov was accused of extorting ‘levies’ from his subordinates. On February 12, 2018, Viktor Shevchenko, his deputy for service support, was found hanged. The investigation is currently explaining this suicide by a family quarrel. Has the lieutenant colonel really taken his own life? Or was it a disguised murder? And if so, who could be interested in it?
