Colonel accused of ties with Zakonovskie OCG is deprived of registration in Samara FSB building
Former Deputy Head of the Economic Security Service of the FSB Directorate in the Samara region, Colonel Sergey Gudovany, who is suspected of bribe-taking and ties with Zakonovskie OCG, has been deprived of his registration.
As reported by Komsomolskaya Pravda-Samara, the colonel has been stripped of registration at 24 Pionerskaya Street, where the FSB Directorate in the Samara region is located.
The Samara District Court heard the civil action of the Samara FSB Directorate against its former employee on November 22. The Directorate requested to deprive him of the right to registration at the place of service.
The fact is that in Samara, Sergey Gudovany served under the contract and was registered in the building of the regional department of the FSB, because he was waiting for service housing.
However, in April 2018, Colonel Gudovany and his colleague, Head of the Department “M” of the FSB Directorate, as well as Colonel Pavel Chermashentsev were detained red-handed while receiving a bribe in the amount of 1.5 million rubles ($22,650). 84 million rubles ($12,684) were seized in Gudovany's workplace. As previously reported by The CrimeRussia, the arrested officers are also suspected of having links with the Zakonovskie organized crime group.
May 17, 2018, Gudovany was dismissed from the FSB, and now the regional government has decided to finally severe ties with him, depriving him of registration. At the moment, Sergey Gudovany is in a pre-trial detention center.
Every big Russian city has ‘untouchable' people who are beyond the reach of the law enforcement authorities – generals, judges, mayors, etc. Despite overwhelming evidence sufficient to prosecute them, such persons cannot be busted without authorization from the federal center. There is also another type of corrupt officials: their deeds are well-known – but these people are so generous, hospitable, and understanding that no one is willing to arrest them.
