Fugitive Russian criminal taken to Russia from Thailand
Previously, the runaway criminal had been extradited from Thailand to Moscow.
Yesterday, an active member of Penya OCG headed by ex-Deputy of the City Regional Assembly Aleksey Peunkov, 56-year-old Anatoly Samodov was taken to Arkhangelsk.
Samodov had been internationally wanted since 2013. Last week, he was extradited from Thailand to Moscow, and then handed over to Arkhangelsk law enforcers for investigative actions.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, Anatoly Samodov was a member of Aleksey Peunkov's OCG from 2009 to 2013. In Arkhangelsk, the gang cornered the construction sand market and forced entrepreneurs to conclude contracts for construction materials purchase exclusively through structures controlled by the crime community.
After criminal proceedings were instituted against the OCG members, Samodov managed to escape. The investigation in absentia brought charges against him for seven episodes of coercion to commit transactions.
The ICR for the Arkhangelsk region and the regional MIA and the FSB are responsible for the investigation into the criminal case.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
