Ex-senator Arashukov ratted out Karachay-Cherkessia head Temrezov calling him his accomplice
Moreover, the politician, who previously stated he did not speak Russian, ‘remembered’ the language.
Former senator Raul Arashukov began to testify against his accomplices, who together with him were involved in two criminal schemes. According to the Postpravda Telegram channel, Arashukov has confessed, calling the Head of Karachay-Cherkessia Rashid Temrezov his business partner and participant in criminal schemes. Arashukov described in detail how he ‘earned’ money. Moreover, the politician, who previously stated he did not speak Russian, ‘remembered’ the language.
The Investigative Committee demanded to prolong Arashukov’s arrest until October 25, since, being at large, he could impede the investigation.
As The CrimeRussia wrote, the former senator was accused of participation in a crime group of his father Raul Arashukov, who allegedly stole 31 billion rubles ($472 m) from Gazprom. In addition, the investigation considers Arashukov Jr. to be involved in two homicides and pressure on one of the witnesses to the crime. May 22, the Federation Council stripped the senator of his authority. June 25, it became known that now Krym Kazanokov will be the senator from Karachay-Cherkessia.
