Belykh's lawyer: He feels shaky after return to pre-trial detention center
According to the lawyer, the former Governor complains of back pain and increased blood pressure.
Ex-Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh returned from the Matrosskaya Tishina prison hospital to the Lefortovo pre-trial detention center and immediately complained of health deterioration. The fact that the former official feels shaky, RBC told his lawyer Andrey Grokhotov.
According to him, Belykh suffers from back pain and high blood pressure.
"He does not feel well after the transfer. After that, all day on the injections. The same situation today, he feels shaky," said Grokhotov.
Recall that the former Head of the region was hospitalized on October 12. On the deterioration of health Belykh complains literally from the very beginning of his detention in jail - since June 2016.
The ex-Governor of the Kirov region is charged with receiving a bribe on an especially large scale - €400 thousand. Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin called explanations of the circumstances of Belykh's detention strange. In particular, the Head of state drew attention to the fact that the meeting of the former regional leader and businessman took place in a Moscow restaurant, and the money was received in foreign currency.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
