Under the proposed amendments to the criminal procedure code the investigating authorities of the FSB will be able to bring proceedings in respect of subjects: public prosecutors, heads of investigation bodies, investigators and lawyers, “regardless of the category of crimes”. Now these powers are exclusive to the Investigative Committee of Russia.

In addition, the amendments provide for the transferability of investigative agencies of the FSB, “preliminary investigation of any criminal cases”, while the intelligence services do not have to motivate his claim.

The FSB was investigating a criminal case of the head of management of own safety of SK Michael Maksimenko, the Deputy Alexander Limonova and Deputy head of the Moscow Directorate of SKR Denis nikandrova accused of receiving 500 thousand euros for the release from detention of Andrei Kochanova (Italian), henchman of the kingpin of Zakhar Kalashov, known as Shakro Young.

The competence of the SC included the investigation of criminal cases against its employees, but the Prosecutor’s office decided to refer the case to the jurisdiction of the FSB for compliance with the principle of objectivity.
