Spanish report on Deripaska and Chernoy’s connection to organized crime and Russian political power (Es)

Deripaska Abramovich doc from Spain

Spanish law enforcers’ undated unsigned report on Oleg Deripaska’s ties to organised crime – Izmaylovskaya , mentioning also Alisher Usmanov and Roman Abramovich:

“Deripaska … was closely linked to transnational organized crime and this fact is widely recognized. For example, this is the case of the Russian citizen of Uzbek descent Alisher Usmanov, who would be investing Deripaska’ funds in the European market”.

Deripaska is currently making a special effort to dissociate himself entirely from the criminal circles with which he collaborated previously. And as indicated above, this is the case of Cherney and Izmailovskaya. To be exact, the main purpose of this attitude is to achieve a relevant role in the group of oligarchs closest to the Russian administration. For that he tries to play the same role as the oligarch Roman Abramovich who is attributed the role to manage the private economic interests of Vladimir Putin.

Akhmetov complaint against Izmaylovo Makhmudov Chernoy

(English below)

Начальнику УВД Мангыстауской области Приходько Н.И. от Ахметова Жараса Амангельдиновича, Директора ТОО “Актал Лтд”, проживающего в городе Актау, тел…

Ко мне, Ахметову Ж.А., в точение ноября месяца текущего года неоднократно с угрозами личной расправы обращались по телефону граждане Российской Федерации Махмудов Искандер и Кадыров Одыл.

Махмудов Искандер и Кадыров Одыл известны как представители полукриминального бизнеса, являются ближайшими сотрудниками небезызвестного Михаила Черного и тесно сотрудничают с Измайловской организованной преступной группировкой и одним из ее лидеров Антоном Малевским.

Сродства массовой информации России связывают с этими людьми заказные убийства Феликса Львова, Вадима Яфясова, Олега Кантора.

Группа Михаила Черного и Искандера Махмудова известна своими скандальными полукриминальными захватами ряда предприятий и России.. В свое время ими уже предпринимались попытки внедрения в Казахстан. В средствах массовой информации России указывалось на их связь с бывшим премьер – министром А.М. Кзжегельдиным. Однако их прошлые попытки не увенчались успехом.

Искандер Махмудов в настоящее время – генеральный директор Уральской горно-металлургической компании и отвечает за захват предприятий Уральского региона, используя незаконные методы.
Одыл Кадыров отвечает за связи между Измайловской ОПГ и казахстанскими организованными преступными группировками.

Группой английских и американских компаний подан иск в окружной суд г. Нью – Йорк к группе Михаилл Черного за использование незаконных методов конкуренции и завладения рядом предприятий в России, в том числе путем угрозы
личной физичоскои расправы.

Мое заявление прошу рассматривать не только как личное обращение, но и как обращение инвесторов, а том числе гражданина Израиля Джосефа Траума, вложившего в развитие нашего производства более 6 млн. долларов США, проявляющих обеспокоенность возможностью криминализации бизнеса в Казахстане, что безусловно скажется на международном авторитете нашей Республики. В частности г-н Траум планирет обратиться в правоохранительные органы Израиля с
просьбой обеспечения уголовного преследования возможных заказчиков противоправных действий в отношении меня.

“To the Head of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Mangystau region Prikhodko N.I. from Akhmetov Zharas Amangeldinovich, President of Aktal Ltd LLP, living in Aktau

Me, Mr. Zh.A. Akhmetov, during the course of November of the current year, was repeatedly contacted by the citizens of the Russian Federation Makhmudov Iskander and Kadyrov Odyl with threats of personal reprisals.

Makhmudov Iskander and Kadyrov Odil are known as representatives of the semi-criminal business, are the closest employees of the notorious Mikhail Chernoy, and work closely with the Izmailovo organized crime group and one of its leaders, Anton Malevsky.

The Russian media of Russia link these people with the assassinations of Felix Lvov, Vadim Yafyasov. Oleg Kantor.

The group of Mikhail Chernoy and Iskander Makhmudov is known for its scandalous semi-criminal seizures of a number of enterprises and Russia. Once they had already attempted to introduce them into Kazakhstan. The media in Russia pointed out their connection with the former Prime Minister A.M. Kzgegeldin. However, their past attempts have not succeeded.

Iskander Makhmudov is currently the CEO of the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company and is responsible for seizing the enterprises of the Ural region using illegal methods. Odyl Kadyrov is responsible for connections between the Izmailovo organized criminal group and Kazakhstani organized criminal groups.

A group of British and American companies filed a lawsuit in the New York District Court against the group of Mikhail Chernoy for using illegal methods of competition and taking possession of a number of enterprises in Russia, including by threatpersonal physical violence.

I ask you to consider my application not only as a personal appeal, but also as an appeal by investors, including Israeli citizen Joseph Traum, who invested more than 6 million US dollars in the development of our production, who are concerned about the possibility of criminalizing business in Kazakhstan, which will certainly affect the image of our republic internationally. In particular, Mr. Traum plan to contact the Israeli law enforcement authorities with a request to ensure the prosecution of potential hiring party of the illegal actions commited against me….”
