Dagestan Rosreestr head suspected of creating crime group escaped investigation
Two employees of the department have been detained.
Ex-Head of the Federal Registry’s department of the Republic of Dagestan, Safiyul Magomedov, suspected of creating a criminal community, is hiding from the investigation, RIA Novosti reports, citing a law enforcement source.
“While we are looking, he is hiding,” said the agency’s interlocutor.
According to the source, at this stage two staff members of the department have been detained for 48 hours.
Earlier it was reported that the criminal group allegedly headed by Magomedov caused damage of 370 million rubles through frauds with state and municipal land plots. According to investigators, the group was created back in 2000.
According to investigators, the suspects made up fake rulings on behalf of the Head of the administration of Makhachkala, as well as fake extracts from business books and other documents, thus giving legal entities and individuals the right to land. In total, more than 30 legal entities and individuals received land this way.
Rosreestr’s department for Dagestan told the agency that Magomedov resigned in 2018. Since last November, Shamil Gadzhiev has been acting Head of the department.
