UK police seeking for black van over murder of oligarch Berezovsky's ally
The black van was spotted near exiled businessman's London home the day before he was found dead.
Police investigating the murder of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov, ex-deputy director-general of Aeroflot, have today released CCTV footage of a black van seen driving past his home on the night he was strangled.
The police have already tried to detect the car, but unsuccessfully so far. “Detectives are keen to identify the van and driver, who they believe could have information that may help with their inquiries,” Metropolitan police stated.
Police, who launched a murder investigation four days after his death, say they have obtained a total of 286 witness statements and have seized 1086 exhibits to date. The officers insisted that his death has nothing to do with the Skripal assassination attempt
Recall that the body of the former deputy head of Aeroflot and LogoVAZ was found in the evening of March 12 in his house. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "The Volkswagen van was seen in and around Clarence Avenue between 7.30pm and 10.30pm on Sunday, March 11.”
Glushkov's death was qualified as murder on March 16, four days after the discovery of the body. Initially, a version of suicide was considered, but then the police found that the death of the entrepreneur was caused by neck strangulating (the media wrote that Glushkov was strangled with his dog's leash). An investigation was launched.
Russia accused the colleague of Berezovsky of some frauds related to the oligarch's business. In March 2017, Moscow sentenced him in absentia to eight years' imprisonment for stealing $123 million from Aeroflot.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
