Does former Head of Federal Customs Service back-pedal his case?
According to the newspaper Kommersant, the former Head of the Federal Customs Service has checked into the hospital after series of high-profile searches, which took place at work and at home of the official and his deputies.
The source of Kommersant said that the former Head of the Federal Customs Service Andrey Belyaninov, who has recently sent in resignation at his own request, was checked into the hospital after a number of searches, related to the case of smuggling of alcoholic beverages. Due to the ill health of the former official investigative actions against him were temporarily suspended.
The source reported that because of the stress chronic diseases of Belyaninov are recrudesced. However, according to another source of information, at the moment the former official takes full range of health surveys to get a new office.
Belyaninov's stay in the hospital can delay the investigation into the smuggling of alcohol, in which the former Head of the Federal Customs Service is named in a case as a witness. In the case of it has already arrested the Head of the holding company Forum Dmitry Mihalchenko, the Head of his security service, the former Deputy Head of the Economic Crimes Department of the MIA in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region Boris Korevsky, the co-owner of Kontreyl Logistic Severo-Zapad company Valery Kindzersky and other enterpreneurs. At the moment, the total damage from their activity is about 1.7 million rubles.
According to the source of the CrimeRussia, the Head of the Federal Customs Service's problems began at a time, when their jobs have lost the former Head of the Federal Security Service Yevgeny Murov and the Chief of the Department K of the FSB General Viktor Voronin, who provided him a cover.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
