Ex-deputy chairman of Central Bank Sergey Aleksashenko refused to return to Russia
The government employee decided to remain in the USA after he became a defendant in a criminal case over smuggling.
Former Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation and ex-deputy chairman of the Central Bank Sergey Aleksashenko said that he would not return to Russia. “There is no smoke without fire,” he told on air of Echo Moskvy radio, adding that it would be better to avoid the danger so far.
According to Aleksashenko, his lawyers do not confirm the message of Moskovsky Komsomolets about initiation of a criminal case against him.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier with reference to Moskovsky Komsomolets, Aleksanshenko was detained in Domodedovo in attempt to take out five Soviet awards. Awards were withdrawn, and the government employee was allowed to go to the USA. Later it became known that a criminal case was initiated against the former deputy chairman of the Central Bank by results of the examination under Article 226.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Smuggling of Cultural Values).
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
