MOSCOW, May 18 (Itar-Tass) — Police have disclosed the activities of a criminal group of ‘black realtors’ whose members abducted and killed people in order to gain possession of their apartments.
Vladimir Markin, a representative of the Russian Investigation Committee, said that investigators had studied and compared all criminal cases initiated in 2008 on charges of fraud and murder of immovable property owners.
“They arrived at a conclusion that all the crimes had been committed by members of one criminal community,” Markin emphasized.
Four natives of Azerbaijan organized a criminal group in Moscow in April 2007. They involved six other people in their criminal business. Lonely people and drunks were their victims. The community members searched for unfavorable flat owners, resold their apartments, took the former flat owners far away from Moscow and then killed them.
“The criminal community has murdered six Muscovites, gained possession of seven apartments in Zelenograd by fraud and attempted to gain possession of another two apartments owned by residents of Zelenograd,” Markin added.
A criminal lawsuit on charges of organization of a criminal community has been filed on facts of murders and abductions.
