Earlier, the Investigation Committee in the Arkhangelsk region denied information about the Oleg Shamanin’s extradition.
The Russian Interior Ministry reported on the extradition of the OCG Shamaninskie leader, Oleg Shamanin. He is suspected of organizing a criminal group in Severodvinsk, the Arkhangelsk region.
In May 2015, at the initiative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Arkhangelsk region Shamanin was put on the international wanted list through Interpol. A year later, he was detained in the United Arab Emirates. In November 2016, it was decided to extradite him to Russia.
"For several years, the organized criminal group (OCG), which also included several members of the MIA, put the fear of God into Arkhangelsk and Severodvinsk entrepreneurs," - the press service of the Interior Ministry reported.
Recall, November 25, the CrimeRussia reported about the extradition of Shamanin. However, the regional ICR denied this information. A total of 29 people have been detained upon the case of the gang, three of them are former MIA employees. They have been charged with Participation In a Criminal Community (part 2 of Art. 210 of the Criminal Code), Extortion (items (a, b), part 3 of Art. 163 of the Criminal Code), Wilful Destruction of other people's property (part 2 of Art. 167 of the Criminal Code) and Robbery (item (a), part 4 of Art. 162 of the Criminal Code). The criminal case against the gang contains a total of 158 volumes. The case of Oleg Shamanin himself has been separated.
Investigators believe that the organized criminal community was created by Oleg Shamanin in 2012 in Severodvinsk. Gang members were engaged in extortion from local businesses. In case when people refused to pay, the criminals used violence against them and destroyed their property — burned cars, shops, and clubs in Severodvinsk and Arkhangelsk. According to the Federal Security Service (FSB), Severodvinsk and Arkhangelsk businessmen handed from several tens of thousands to several million rubles to bandits every month. By the court order, law enforcers arrested more than 42 mln rubles on Shamanin’s accounts.
