How lieutenant colonel Andreev satisfied lawyers from S&K Vertical
As it became known to the Cheka-OGPU, law enforcement officers hit the S&K Vertical law office and the searches conducted in its Moscow office are due to the fact that Vertikal has been performing collection functions for the liquidation commission for a long time. Latvian ABLV BANK on Russian territory.
In this activity, “Vertical” was assisted by the Basmanny District Department of Internal Affairs of Moscow, represented by its chief, Sergei Andreev, whose wife, Yulia Andreeva, is a lawyer for “Vertical”. The juicy details of this cooperation came to light.
During several months of this year, large Russian banks received requests from the Basmanny District Department of Internal Affairs to provide information on the bank accounts of a number of clients whom Vertikal indicated as debtors to ABLV BANK. The inquiries referred to a criminal case initiated by the investigative department of the Basmanny ROVD. But in reality, there was nothing. More precisely, it was initiated on March 9, 2023 by Olga Efremova, deputy head of the investigative department, on the personal instructions of Andreev, but almost immediately was canceled by the prosecutor’s office as illegally initiated.
First of all, the prosecutor’s office was embarrassed that the initiation of the case took place without any pre-investigation check, just a couple of hours after the lawyer of “Vertical” Natalia Kolerova brought to the police department a statement signed by the Latvian manager Novitsans Kaspars.
Despite the cancellation of the case, Andreev, fulfilling the whims of his wife, personally organized a mass mailing of inquiries on a non-existent criminal case, and the inquiries were sent out until the end of July.
All this time, representatives of “Vertical” flaunted their connections in law enforcement agencies, showed the decision to initiate a criminal case and intimidated former clients of ABLV BANK with serious problems and imprisonment if they refused to pay them.
According to reports, this case also involves the Prime Advice Consulting Group, whose lawyers have long been working for Latvian customers in conjunction with S&K Vertical.
How S&K Vertical squeezed money from Philip Kirkorov
[…] Equestrian sports, shopping in luxury boutiques and constant walks on a yacht – this is how the life of Andreev and his soulmate looked until today. Until the man was caught in another crime, which revealed the whole scheme. It looked like this: at the behest of his wife, Andreev illegally initiated criminal cases in the interests of the S&K Vertical law firm, in which his wife Yulia worked as a defender. The policeman himself also participated in some meetings with clients. The intermediaries were the lawyers themselves.
In addition, “Vertical” was engaged in knocking out debts the Russians in front of the closed Latvian bank ABLV. It is in him Philip Kirkorov A mortgage was issued for one of the apartments. Lawyers tried to take away housing, but nothing came of it – the singer’s defense side proved that it was impossible to make payments due to the closure of the organization. However, how much money Andreev’s wife was still able to take away with the help of connections in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, now the investigation will find out.
