A bloody leader of the Orehovskiye gang faces even more tough sentence
According to forecasts of informed sources, under the upcoming sentence ‘Karlic’ (Dwarf) will remain in a jail until the end of his days.
Andrei Pylev, a leader of the Orehovskiye gang, known as ‘Karlik’ (Dwarf), is facing a sentense. As the Kommersant has found out, Karlik’s criminal case was sent to the Nikulinskiy Court of Moscow. Karlik is now serving a 22-year prison sentence, and he is accused of another 15 especially grave crimes, including Moscow businessman Iosif Glotser's murder, founder of the Medvedkovskaya criminal group Gregory Gusyatinsky (Grisha Severniy (North)), leaders of the Orekhovskaya and Izmailovskaya gangs, as well as an attack on a president of the Russkoe Zoloto Company Alexander Tarantsev. According to forecasts of informed sources, under the upcoming sentence ‘Karlic’ (Dwarf) will remain in a jail until the end of his days.
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported that trial on Karlik’s case could have started two years ago, yet the Moscow City Court, where the materials of the investigation had been sent, did not consider them, referring to procedural incorrectness. The case was returned to the Investigative Committee, and then re-sent to the Moscow City Court. But on the basis of preliminary hearings, the case was forwarded to the jurisdiction of the Nikulinskiy District Court.
It worth noting, that the new trial on the Orehovskiye gang's leader became possible only after it had been agreed by Spain authorities, who extradited him. The international law states, that Karlik can be judged only for the crimes that were listed in a request for extradition. However, during investigation, new reasons to suspect Karlik in involvement in the above-mentioned criminal episodes were found out. In total, new Andrei Pylev’s criminal case includes 11 murders and 4 attempts.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
