Sugrobov is in custody. The investigation into his case continues behind closed doors. The former corruption fighter is charged with 21 episodes. Investigators believe that at the order of General Denis Sugrobov, his subordinates and agents of defendants there were fabricated nearly 30 criminal cases.

Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
