Ruslan Koliak’s testimony against Yuri Shutov

Koliak against Shutov

On June 25, 1999, a Sankt-Petersburg’s criminal authority Ruslan Koliak, acting as a witness, acuses Yuri Shutov of beeing a criminal authority. Koliak learned it, being himself in custody, from another detainee, who said he was a “killer contracted by Shutov”.

Yuriy Shutov  – an early assistant in Sobchak’s administration who was fired after accusing the mayor’s office of corruption. See book by Shutov: “the Sobchak’s heart”.

Shutov was accused of contract murders and sentenced to life imprisonment amid a public support campaign.  Shutov died in Russian penal colony in 2015. In 2019, a Sankt-Petersburg TV accused him of “running several criminal gangs in the same time” and presented his case as an exemplary work of law enforcers.

On September 14, 2010, an application No. 20922/08 has been communicated to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Mr. Shutov alleged that sentencing him to lifetime imprisonment while he was not present in the courtroom amounts to inhuman treatment.

This is to remind who accused Shutov of banditry:  Roman Tsepov, Former Ministry of Interior officer, co-founder, with Victor Zolotov, of security company called Baltik-Eskort, criminal authority Ruslan Koliak, and former State Douma deputy and Soviet and Russian journalist Alexander Nevzorov (see mentions of Nevzorov by Marina Salye; in the Spanish criminal case of Tambov gang ; see Nevzorov at Tambovskaya gang leader Vladimir Kumarin’s birthday footage).

Outside Russia, no law enforcers’ reports endorse existence of the  “Shutov’s band”, unlike, for example, Izmaylovo, Solntsevo and Tambov gangs.
