Chelyabinsk region ex-vice governor’s house arrest extended for 2 months
In Chelyabinsk, the court decided to extend the house arrest for former official Nikolay Sandakov, suspected in swindling, until February 28.
Yesterday, December 23, the Central District Court in Chelyabinsk decided to approve the application of investigative bodies and ordered to extend the house arrest for Nikolay Sandakov, former vice-governor of the Chelyabinsk region.
The court noted that the circumstances, that led to the adoption of such preventive measure against the official, had not changed, and he would stay under house arrest until February 28, 2017.
It is also worth noting that the judgement passed the other day has not yet entered into force, and may be appealed within three days from the date of delivery.
According to the indictment, Nikolay Sandakov has embezzled 1.5 million rubles taking advantage of his official position of the first assistant to the governor.
The former senior official remained in custody for a year. March 24, was released on bail, which amounted to 10 million rubles. However, as soon as March 31 he was arrested on suspicion of bribery. In April, the court ordered to place Sandakov under house arrest. Since the term of this measure will expire on December 30, 2016, and the investigation into the case has not been completed, the court has decided to extend the house arrest of ex-official until February 28 next year.
Let us recall that Nikolay Sandakov is accused of accepting a bribe of 1.3 million rubles.
