Samara region prosecutor arrested for bribing OCG
Andrey Pavlov was detained red-handed the other day when receiving 750 thousand rubles ($12.6 thousand) from Zakonovskie OCG.
In the Samara region, the court sent Prosecutor of the Bezenchuksky district Andrey Pavlov – detained red-handed by FSB officers yesterday – to a pre-trial detention center until February 8.
Yesterday, the media citing sources reported that the Samara guardian of the law would receive 750 thousand rubles a month from an influential crime group Zakanovskie. The prosecutor took the money for “general protection.” According to one version, Pavlov was detained when receiving this amount.
The FSB and the Prosecutor General’s Office have yet to comment on this information, only confirming the detention. In addition, power structures have denied the detainee’s kinship with Deputy Prosecutor of the Samara region Aleksey Pavlov.
As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, according to a source in the law enforcement bodies, the prosecutor had been under cultivation for about four months. An employee of the MIA Anti-Corruption Department in the Samara region Vadim Neshchadimov, which came to the attention of law enforcement officers after the arrest of entrepreneur Sergey Gafurov accused of creation of a criminal community in the Samara region, may also be involved in the crime.
Gafurov, also known as Gafur, is considered one of the founders of Zakonovskie OCG. He was detained by law enforcers when preparing the murder of another member of the organized crime group, Vladimir Izumrudov, in August 2017.
The decision on the undesirability of one of the most influential thieves in law Tariel Oniani’s (Mulukhov) stay in Russia after his release next year was taken on August 6 by Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev. After Oniani’s release, the MIA explained, he will be expelled from Russia for life.
The gray cardinal of Karachay-Cherkessia (KChR), Senator Rauf Arashukov used opportunities to influence the Cherkessian community of the region, especially youth. He was nominated to the post of Prime-Minister of the republic. However, no one shared his political wishes and methods of struggle. According to the sources of The CrimeRussia, the Senator masterminded the murder of youth movement leader Aslan Zhukov in 2010. Many people knew about, the witnesses of a high-profile crime testified against him. But the political weight and ties terminated the case. And even the self-proclaimed killer was unable to prove his guilt in court. However, as it became known the other day, six years after his acquittal, he gave himself up once again.
