Bloody Ruzalik's case suspended
The Court will hear the case on the major gang leader only in 3 months.
It became known that the criminal case against Ruzaly Asadullin, one of the leaders of Complex 29 gang, who is better known as just Ruzalik, was returned to the Prosecutor. According to Chelny LTD newspaper, at the preliminary hearing in the Supreme Court of the Republic of Tatarstan some mistakes were found in drafting of the indictment, and therefore the case was returned to the republican Prosecutor's Office. The newspaper claimed that the correction of the mistakes may take 2 or 3 months.
The CrimeRussia has had several stories on the gang known as Complex 29. The organized crime group based in Naberezhnye Chelny operated even outside the Republic of Tatarstan. The leaders of the defeated group responsible for a number of most violent crimes have been serving their prison sentences for a long time now. At that time, when so-called 29-ers got to prison one after another, Ruzaly Asadullin managed to slip away from justice and then was declared wanted. The fugitive was not detained until April 2012 in Kiev. In Ukraine he was carrying false documents in the name of Janis, a man born in Greece, with a family and a legal business. In April 2015 he was sentenced to 24 years in prison. Meanwhile, the investigation found new episodes of Asadullin's crimes. To alleviate his plight, bloody Ruzalik made a pre-trial agreement with the investigation and spoke about the details of the crimes, for which he is now being tried.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
