Spanish Civil Guard has denied accusations of Torshin
The source of RIA Novosti in the Spanish Civil Guard denied the allegations against the Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank.
The Spanish Civil Guard has never pressed charges against the former Senator Aleksandr Torshin, accusing him of having links with the Russian mafia and Tambovskaya criminal group, said the source of the edition RIA Novosti. According to him, all posts on this topic are only conjectures of the Bloomberg newspaper.
However, the source added that Torshin was really been going to interrogate in Spain because of his familiarity with the Romanov, given the fact that the former Senator is the godfather of the son of a businessman. In addition, law enforcement agencies knew that the banker repeatedly spoke with the thief in law on the phone, but nothing like the money-laundering instructions, how wrote Bloomberg, they did not hear.
A member of the Civil Guard has expressed bewilderment why this story has caused such a resonance right now, although on conversations and emails of Torshin were known in 2014. According to the American edition, in these e-mails it was allegedly dealt with the patronage of criminals, who have committed raider seizure of store Moskva.
The source of RIA Novosti reported that the decision to question the banker had to be taken by the General Prosecutor of Spain, however, this decision was not taken.
Recall that the Deputy Chairman himself did not deny the acquaintance with Romanov, confirming that it began in the early 90s during his work in the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. The former Senator, commenting on the Bloomberg's article called accusations of having links with Tambovskie organized crime group and links with the Russian mafia in Spain an utter nonsense.
Spanish prosecutor is widely known as the man who "brought down the Russian mafia in Spain," as he has been fighting Tambovskyaya, Solntsevskaya, Malyshevskaya, and Izmaylovskaya organized crime groups of Russia. Jose Grinda condemned the UK’s lack of cooperation in a fight with the organized crime which has gone increasingly global.
Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
