Convicted for participation in Trunovskaya OCG former Vice-Mayor of Novosibirsk released on parole
At the end of last year, another former member of the group, ex-Head of the regional drug control department Andrey Andreev, was released ahead of schedule.
Convicted for participation in Trunovskaya OCG former deputy Mayor of Novosibirsk Alexander Solodkin Jr. left the colony on the parole.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, on June 14 the Verkh-Isetsky District Court of Yekaterinburg ruled to release Solodkin Jr. ahead of schedule. One of the conditions for the former official's parole is to find work within two months after leaving the colony.
Recall, in late 2015, the Novosibirsk Regional Court condemned Solodkin Jr. for 8 years in prison for participating in an organized criminal group of Alexander Trunov.
Since autumn of 2016, the convict served his sentence in the correctional colony No. 2 in Yekaterinburg. Prior to his arrival in the colony of Yekaterinburg, the former Vice-Mayor spent about 6.5 years in SIZO-1 in Novosibirsk.
It should be noted that his father, former adviser to the Governor Alexander Solodkin Sr., who was charged with a similar charge for six years, was also convicted. He left most of the term in the SIZO and under house arrest. The term of his imprisonment expired and in June of 2016 he was released.
In November 2016, ex-Head of the regional department of drug control Andrey Andreev, who was sentenced for participation in Trunovskaya OCG for 11 years, was also released on parole, then the term was reduced to 7 years.
According to the investigation, since 1997 Solodkin was a member of the Alexander Trunov's OCG. Trunovskaya OCG operated in the territory of Novosibirsk in the 90s, killing unwanted businessmen. In 2009, it was neutralized, and in 2012 its leader Trunov was sentenced to 22 years of imprisonment.
