“Officers of the K department of the FSB visit, they try to negotiate.” How thief in law Kakha Galsky gets new cases
The thief’s defense claims that the security forces are knocking out new evidence against their client.
The Kuntsevsky Court of Moscow is considering a case against 44-year-old thief in law Kakhaber Parpaliya, better known in criminal circles as Kakha Galsky. As Kommersant writes, so far the thief has been charged only with illegal possession and transportation of drugs on a large scale (part 2 of article 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
However, lawyer Yaroslav Pakulin claims that the investigation is preparing to bring new charges against his client. So, the court rejected all the motions of the defense, accepting the version that Kakha was detained with 8 grams of cocaine on Rublevsky highway. The defense tried to prove that there was not enough evidence, demanding that the case be returned to the prosecutor’s office.
According to Pakulin, his client’s motorcade was stopped by the traffic police, but nearby were operatives from the 20th department of the MUR, specializing in the development of leaders of the criminal environment, employees of the “K” department of the FSB SEB and special forces soldiers.
“If Kakhaber had drugs, he could calmly get rid of them first, and then get out of the car. However, he immediately complied with the demand of the security forces,” the lawyer says, adding that after the arrest, for some reason, the investigators did not examine the bundles seized from his client for fingerprints or biological traces. And no traces of drugs were found on the cuts of nails and in the pockets of Kakhaber Parpaliya’s trousers.
Pakulin also tried to draw the attention of the court to the fact that the crime boss had not been prosecuted before. He also recalled how they tried to deprive his client of citizenship – employees of the Sochi department of the Federal Security Service for the Krasnodar Territory, at the direction of the leadership, initiated an inspection of Parpaliya’s receipt of Russian citizenship in 2004, and earlier – a passport in Abkhazia.
Despite the fact that the director of the State Security Service of Abkhazia stated in court that all the necessary documents of Parpaliya were issued legally, the court ruled to deprive the thief in law of his Russian passport. Until now, defenders are trying to appeal this verdict. Pakulin believes that the detention of his client was planned because it was not possible to expel him from the country.
He also noted that his client had been in solitary confinement in the capital’s SIZO-6 “Pechatniki” (designed to hold women) in “Spartan conditions” for a year now. The thief is often visited by employees of the 20th Department of the MUR and the K department of the FSB, who try to “negotiate” with him, otherwise promising a “long term”.
Kakha Galsky himself considers his case a “political order” and does not exclude that he will soon be charged with new charges. So, the defense knows that the thief in law is being checked for involvement in the attack in the center of Moscow in 2007 on a visitor from Chechnya, Adlan Khutsiev, the son-in-law of the owner of a chain of restaurants in the capital. Pakulin admits that they want to charge his client with organizing this attack, as a result of which the victim died in the hospital.
Thus, according to Pakulin, they are trying to extract evidence against Kakha Galsky from a fellow thief in law, 45-year-old Zaza Matua, who in 2010 received a sentence for murder, robbery and robbery. He previously served his sentence in the Arkhangelsk region, but was recently transferred to the Vladimir colony, where he was beaten and threatened.
“He was beaten and under threats of sexual violence and required to sign a confession that he, on the order of Parpaliya, together with two accomplices, attacked Adlan in 2007,” Matua’s defender Dzhemal Gvagvalia said.
As a result, fellow countryman Kakha signed everything. Matua, according to the lawyer, showed signs of torture and agreed to undergo a polygraph and medical examination.
Now, according to Pakulin, the crime boss can be charged with beating with a fatal outcome (part 4 of article 111 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and occupying a higher position in the criminal hierarchy (Article 210.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
