Litigation of a reputable businessman Alexey Gudyna (Lech of Irkutsk) approached his final line. There were debates. After the prosecutor’s speech, the authority immediately fell ill. About this and about what the verdict of Gudyna will come back to for all the criminal elites, in the material of the editorial staff of the online publication “Kompromat Group“.
Get out of the courtroom!
The visiting sessions of the Novgorod Regional Court in the case of Gudyna from the very beginning did not promise to be strewn with roses. Gudyna, who was arrested in June 2020, is not going to give up without a fight. Moreover, he is in some way a pioneer. He was first charged under Art. 210.1. Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – “Occupation of the highest position in the criminal hierarchy.” The criminal novel was a welcome chick born and born by the Russian Investigative Committee and other law enforcement agencies. The position of thieves in law today is such that sometimes there is literally nothing to dig into, and everyone knows that this person is a crime boss.
Today, the first trial balloon is being rolled on St. Petersburg soil. And he flew away Lehi of Irkutsk, it is here, not by chance. In 2004, after another detention, Gudyna, according to rumors, organized the very grandiose thieves’ run, the echo of which came back to haunt all penitentiary institutions and pre-trial detention centers of the city and region. The famous strike of convicts in Fornosovo still resonates with Fsinovites with experience, a death knell. For many, this hunger strike cost an epaulette. According to official figures, about 5,000 prisoners took part in it. And all because Alexei Gudyna is the “prison guard” in St. Petersburg.
The procedural battle that continues in the building of the St. Petersburg City Court is going hard. For both sides. Not all crime bosses defend themselves with such aplomb. Most prefer articulate lawyers. Gudyna’s two lawyers seem to not always know what to do with his emotional outbursts.
Gudyna behaves defiantly, as a man of his position should. News of this magnitude has the ability to seep through walls, and behavior thief in law, is closely evaluated by all respectable prisoners. At the meeting, regarding the extension of the measure of restraint, Lyokha on the fly artistically booed the prosecutor, objecting to the guards and vigorously bickered with the judge. Skirmishes continued throughout the first parts of the trial. Shouts with the prosecutor and the judge ended with the fact that Alexei Gennadievich was eventually removed from the courtroom until the debate.
Information from Kompromat Group:
According to the investigation, in November 1999 in St. Petersburg, Gudyna was crowned and acquired a criminal status “thief in law”. Since that time, Gudyna has taken the highest position in the criminal hierarchy in the Novgorod and Leningrad regions, as well as in St. Petersburg. He appointed “watchers” (trusted persons) to resolve disputes and raise funds for the thieves’ obshchak. Supported individual representatives of the criminal environment. And also, according to the investigation, he supported criminal traditions and spread the thieves’ subculture, influenced the representatives of the criminal environment, made decisions to increase and decrease the criminal status of persons serving sentences in correctional institutions.
Linden and muddles
Protection. The defense, as expected, objects. They say Gudyna never frightened anyone, and in general he devoted himself to the service of the church in the last years of his life (the lawyer raised his eyes to grief). “It is a feat to serve the church!”exclaimed the defender.
Judge Aleksey Stanovsky eventually could not stand it: “Defendant, I am reprimanding you. You use slang words: vtyuhitaet, sculpt. Use words appropriate for a court session.”. The debate ended with the prosecution requesting that Gudyna be sentenced to 13.5 years of imprisonment in a strict regime colony and prison (the first 5 years) with a fine of 3 million rubles.
The defense filed motions to exclude evidence and return the case to the prosecutor, as “you can’t pass semolina porridge for roast beef”namely, this is what the prosecution is doing, imputing Art. 210.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation to Gudyna.
Prison and Crown
Having five convictions behind him, Alexey Gudyna was “crowned” in 1999. As they say on the net, at the coronation he allegedly received Aslan Usoyan (Ded Khasan) – along with other thieves in law. Then information appeared that after the death of Ded Khasan, Gudyna was “crowned”. There was a rumor that a big “thieves’ gathering” was even planned on this occasion. But Gudyna did not come to her. This automatically means that no removal from the criminal throne has occurred, because according to “concepts” it is impossible to make such decisions without the presence of the “accused”. This is a violation and violation of thieves’ traditions. So, people still look at Aleksey Gudyna both from the muddy windows of the pre-trial detention center and from the sad windows of the colonies, as if thief in law. The lawsuit, one might say, even plays into his hands.
On the one hand, Lyokha Irkutsky does not seem to want to sit for nothing (he didn’t kill anyone, didn’t steal anyone), and he is indignant at the prosecutor’s lawlessness with all the vehemence. On the other hand, being the first to be convicted under the article “occupying the highest position in the criminal hierarchy” is an additional trump card for the underworld. It seems like “the cops themselves confirmed it.” This conviction will allow Lekha of Irkutsk to wear the crown with honor “thief in the law for life. No one will dare to encroach on her.
The consequence and operas can be understood. They have already suffered enough tricks from Lekha of Irkutsk for all these years. But even if their sweet dreams of closing Gudyna in a cell for the first 5 years come true, they will not receive any preferences other than a hole for the next shoulder straps. Only Gudyna will win. He will become an icon of the criminal subculture, a martyr, and still remain the overseer of prisons. A new conviction will not deprive him of his status.
If we weigh all these curious things on the scales of Themis, the trial becomes the theater of a real drama. So far, according to official reports, “at an off-site court session in the St. Petersburg City Court, the court session against Alexei Gudyna was postponed due to the illness of the accused”. It is unlikely that this is something serious, rather Lech Irkutsky took a tactical time out. The next meeting is May 31st. This is a day of debate for the defense.
