“I got sit of working!” Head of Arashukov’s native district files statement of resignation
Statement of resignation has also been filed by his deputy.
Head of administration of Khabezsky municipal district of the Karachay-Cherkessia Beslan Baychorov has filed a statement of resignation, reports RBC with reference to a chairman of a youth organization Adyge Khase Timur Zhuzhuev. The head of the district filed a statement of resignation on his own accord on Monday, February 4. “I got sick of working!” he explained his decision. His first deputy Azamat Sidakov also stood down.
Baychorov is considered ‘Rauf Arashukov’s man’, says an RBK source within the district’s administration. He was the head of administration of Khabezsky municipal district when Arashukov’s was heading the district. This information was confirmed to RBK by a source close to the district’s administration.
The CrimeRussia had earlier reported that despite the criminal case against the senator Rauf Arashukov and his father Raul Arashukov had been initiated, the family’s influence on the local elite continues to persist in the Caucasus region. The locals started reporting to the police and complaining about representatives of the big-name family following the high-profile arrests. However, the police does not accept their appeals.
The investigation theory is that the senator of the Karachay-Cherkessia Rauf Arashukov is involved in two murders committed in 2010: a murder of deputy of a chairman of the youth movement Adyge Khase Aslan Zhukov and of a counsellor to the President of the Republic Fral Shebzukhov. Moreover, the Investigative Committee of Russia assumes that Arashukov Sr. created a criminal community that had stolen gas worth of 31 billion rubles ($473 million) since 2002.
