Deputy Dean of MSU Law Faculty detained in Moscow
Deputy Dean of the Law Faculty of the Moscow State University has been detained as part of an embezzlement case.
FSB officers have detained 37-year-old Deputy Dean of the Law Faculty of the Moscow State University Vladimir Stepanov-Egiyants.
According to Znak.com, the reason for the detention was a criminal case initiated under Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling), in which Stepanov-Egiyants was a defendant. The journalists say the scam is associated with an illegal seizure. Representatives of the university and law enforcement agencies have not yet commented on the news.
Judging by the information on the official website of the University, Stepanov-Egiyants is a Doctor of Juridical Science. Since July 2017, he has been the head of the criminal law and criminology department at the Faculty of Law and an assistant to the pro-rector of the Moscow State University. He has been working at the Faculty of Law for the last 14 years.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention.

The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
