Man Stomped to Death in Russia for Performing Rap

MOSCOW, February 18 (RIA Novosti) – Sometimes knowing your audience can be truly vital. A hip-hop aficionado in Russia’s far north proved this with his life when he was stomped to death this weekend for rapping at a sports bar.

The incident took place in the city of Arkhangelsk, the regional branch of the Investigative Committee said on its website Monday.

Alexei Gorlishchev, 25, was rapping at the local Bookmaker Pub, sparking the ire of some patrons, the Lifenews.ru tabloid reported.

One of the critics, Artyom Furzikov, 21, offered the rapper to “take it outside” – where he threw the artist on the ground and jumped on him, the tabloid said.

The victim died of internal bleeding shortly after hospitalization, said the investigators, who did not release any names, but confirmed rapping to be the cause of the brief fight.

Russian Law Enforcement Agencies to Retain Investigative Functions

MOSCOW, February 19 (RIA Novosti) - Russian state security and law enforcement agencies will retain their investigative functions for now, Security Council head Nikolai Patrushev said on Tuesday.

“At present, investigative functions are entrusted to the Russian Federation Investigative Committee, the Interior Ministry, the Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN). All will retain these powers in the foreseeable future,” Patrushev said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily.

A presidential decree, currently being drafted, will provide for a redistribution of investigative functions as part of comprehensive law enforcement reform, he said. The reform is meant to make crime investigations more effective and boost conviction rate, improve the staff's professional training and increase investigations' objectivity and independence.

Russia Lost $49 Bln in Money Transfer Scams in 2012- Banker

MOSCOW, February 20 (RIA Novosti) – Illegal money transfers from Russia reached $49 billion in 2012 or 2.5 percent of the country’s GDP, with almost half of that sum sent out by a single group of "well-organized" people, central bank chief Sergei Ignatyev said on Wednesday.

“This could be payment for the delivery of drugs… payments for grey imports … bribes and kickbacks for officials or managers making purchases at large private companies with ineffective internal controls. Or this may involve tax evasion schemes,” Ignatyev said in an interview with Vedomosti business paper.

Ignatyev said $14 billion of that $49 billion was transferred to foreign accounts abroad in trade operations, while $35 billion involved capital operations referred to as “dubious” in the balance of payments and included in the capital outflow count.

Russia’s net capital outflow reached $56.8 billion last year - therefore indicating that up to 60 percent of money which left Russia was brought out illegally.

SCO Must Collaborate to Fight Transnational Crime – Ivanov

MOSCOW, February 20 (RIA Novosti) – Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office Sergei Ivanov has called on Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states to join forces and fight transnational crime.



“Thanks to our efforts cooperation is strengthening in extradition, repatriation, evidence-gathering, and the confiscation of illegally obtained property,” Ivanov said at the meeting of high court representatives from SCO member states in Moscow, which opened on February 20 and runs through February 24.



“This also helps us develop effective barriers to corruption and money laundering,” he added.



Ivanov said the international regulations currently under development will enable SCO member states to operate “in a more effective, coordinated manner against dangerous transnational crime,” and urged SCO members to focus on bringing their laws and legal systems into closer alignment.

Russian Investigators Ask for Georgian Politician’s Arrest

Moscow’s Basmanny court will consider the Investigative Committee’s request on Thursday, the court’s spokeswoman Yekaterina Korotova told the RAPSI legal news agency.

Suspected Lipetsk deputy murder mastermind denies guilt


LIPETSK, February 21 (Itar-Tass) - Former deputy minister of the housing and utilities sector of the Moscow region Yevgeny Kharitonov, suspected of masterminding the murder of Lipetsk region legislator Mikhail Pakhomov, denies his involvement, senior aide to the director of the regional department of the Investigative Committee Galina Karlina told Itar-Tass.

Kharitonov said he was innocent as he was informed about the expert examinations to be carried out within the case.

"He continues to refuse to testify referring to the article of the Constitution which enables him not to testify against himself," Karlina said.

Earlier on Thursday, reports said that police in Anapa had detained the second suspected mastermind.

Eight persons have been detained within the case. "Five of them are accused of abduction, and three of property theft. A court sanctioned the arrest of six suspects: a mastermind, three perpetrators of the abduction, and two persons accused of theft," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said earlier.

Markin said the purpose of the abduction was to recover an 80-million-dollar debt from Pakhomov.
