Sakha Republic: Former local MP’s son tried for drug possession for second time
A criminal case has been opened against former Head of the Promishlenny district (Sakha republic) Aleksandr Podgolov’s younger son Dmitry.
The young man is accused of illegal purchase and possession of drugs in large quantities. He will face trial on May 11.
30-year-old Dmitry Podgolov was arrested with a large batch of drugs in the spring of 2017, according to investigators. This is not his first time. The police had arrested him with a bag of synthetic cannabinoids on January 15, 2013. Back then, he claimed he had to reserve to taking drugs due to having lost a child and being very depressed. Court took it into account and gave him a 3 year-long suspended sentence and fined him for 10,000 rubles.
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
