The bent cops kidnapped 1.5 kg of amber and extorted money from a businessman.
A gang of bent cops, who served in the MIA Administration in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts, was arrested for robbery and extortion money from a businessman, as Life reports. Members of the gang were 10 officers of the Criminal Investigation Department and the Police Patrol and Checkpoint Service. Among them there was the Head of the Theft and Pickpocket Prevention Department of the MIA Administration in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts Pavel Shaforost.
According to investigators, the suspects seized 1.5 kg of amber from a businessman, which he intended to sell in Moscow. In addition, they extorted 200 thousand rubles from him. A criminal case has been initiated.
Up to now, 10 people have been detained and arrested for two days. The question on the measure of restraint for the suspects is being considered.
Private game reserves became a bon ton among Russian politicians and businessmen. A couple of years ago, the Law On Hunting has been significantly amended and it became virtually impossible to join the privileged ‘hunters club’. So, who managed to acquire personal hunting lands and how much it costs?
This is stated in the indictment of the Prosecutor's Office. The defense of the ex-Minister asked to return the case to the supervisory authority, as the factual allegations changed, but the court refused to do so.
