Policeman leaked information to Gagiev's gang
For 100 thousand dollars the police officer handed an official document containing information about the criminal activities of the group in the Moscow region to the gang lawyer.
Vadim Shavlokhov, the former Сhief of the 4th operational investigative unit of the MIA Criminal Investigation Department in the Moscow region, will go on trial on charges of receiving $100.000 from members of the Aslan Gagiev’s organized criminal group.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, in 2013 Vadim Shavlokhov handed materials of the investigation of the Gagiev's gang crimes committed in the Moscow region to lawyer of the gang Arkady Gabalov, nicknamed Galstuk. The service document, in particular, contained information on the structure of the criminal community, its participants and links.
During the investigation of the case, Galstuk fully admitted his guilt. The Presnensky Court of the capital sentenced him to 6 and a half years of strict regime.
Now, the former employee is waiting for the court. Shavlohov is accused of committing crimes under the articles Exceeding Official Powers and Bribe-Taking. The Prosecutor General's Office approved the indictment against the ex-policeman. The criminal case was sent to the Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow for consideration on the merits.
Recall that the Gagiev's gang of killers went down in history as one of the most violent criminal communities, on account of which at least 60 murders committed from 2005 to 2010 in the territories of the Moscow and North Caucasus regions. Leader of the bloody group Aslan Gagiev lives in Austria, where he was arrested in early 2015. The decision on his extradition to Russia is still in question. Several members of the gang were killed while detaining, several more killers are under investigation in Russia.
UK investigators believe they have identified the suspected perpetrators behind the Novichok nerve agent attack on the Skripals through CCTV and have cross-checked the footage with records of people who entered the country around that time.
