Chelyabinsk region ex-Governor returns to Russia for questioning
At the moment, Mikhail Yurevich is in Israel, where he is being treated.
The former Governor of the Chelyabinsk region, Mikhail Yurevich, intends to return to Russia from Israel on April 10, 2017 in order to meet with investigator of the 4th Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (Yekaterinburg) Alexey Smirnov.
During the interrogation, the investigator intends to charge the ex-official with bribe-taking and instigating libel.
"Mikhail Valerievich as a respectable citizen does not intend to hide from the investigation. If there is no force majeure, he will arrive April 10 in Yekaterinburg. So far, everything is developing favorably," Igor Trunov, the lawyer of the suspect, commented to Znak.com.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, Mikhail Yurevich became a figurant of the criminal case on corruption. According to the investigation, the ex-Governor systematically received bribes from his then-subordinate, former Health Minister of the region Vyacheslav Teslenko, for general patronage. The amount of bribes amounted to 26 million rubles ($464.600). In addition, Yurevich instigated Oleg Grachev, appointed to the post of First Deputy Governor, to spread defamation about the activities of the Chairman of the Chelyabinsk Regional Court.
Yurevich himself is currently being treated abroad. He denies all charges against him.
