Illegal activities of an organized group engaged in gambling stopped in Crimea
In Crimea, a criminal case has been initiated against seven citizens suspected of organizing and conducting gambling by a group of persons with the extraction of income on an especially large scale (part 3 of article 171.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). As reported in the regional board of the Sledkom, the organizers of underground casinos operated in Simferopol.
The Investigation Department for the Central District of Simferopol established that since October 2022, a resident of Chuvashia who arrived on the peninsula, in violation of Federal Law No. 224-FZ, organized two underground clubs on the territory of Simferopol to extract illegal income from gambling.
For their functioning, he attracted six more people — his countrymen, as well as residents of the Republic of Mari El and the Krasnogvardeisky district of the Republic of Crimea (including two women)— told the details in the Sledkom.
In the course of special events carried out by operational officers of the Federal Security Service of Russia for the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol with the assistance of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the city of Simferopol, the activity of underground gambling halls was suppressed. In the premises on Zalesskaya and Kyiv streets, during searches, computer equipment was seized, with the help of which gaming activities were carried out, money, accounting documentation and visitor registers. All defendants pleaded guilty to the crime.
The investigator went to court with a motion to select a measure of restraint for the defendants in the criminal case. As a result, the organizer and his closest accomplice, who performed the functions of a collector in an organized group, were chosen by the court as a measure of restraint in the form of a ban on certain actions, the rest — a written undertaking not to leave— clarified in the Sledkom.
Currently, the investigation establishes all the circumstances of the crime and the circle of persons involved in it.
