Colonel Zakharchenko's family turned their back on him
Family members and relatives have yet to visit Zakharchenko over three weeks in the pre-trial detention center. Former MIA colonel had to ask his lawyers to bring him new socks and a set of underwear.
Family and relatives of the former Acting Head of the Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Dmitry Zakharchenko, who had been arrested by the Presnensky Court for two months, avoid him.
Life.ru notes, that Dmitry Zakharchenko's family has not made a single attempt to visit him or bring a parcel over the entire time he has spent in the detention facility.
As previously reported, immediately after Zakharchenko's arrest, all of his numerous relatives including half-sister and her husband, mother, and father left for the Rostov region. Furthermore, it is known that his nephews reside in one of the flats in Moscow, found in Zaharchenko family members' property. None of them have tried to show their support in the form of such necessary household trifles as hygiene items or underwear.
The former colonel addresses his requests to his lawyers. For example, at the court hearing on the appeal of preventive measure, Zakharchenko asked to bring him a sports cap, and today – shorts and socks.
It should be noted that prior to his arrest and seizure of 8.5 billion rubles on September 8, the head of the Department T had never shorted his relatives. During the investigation, there was found several luxury apartments in prestigious residential complexes in Moscow, which belong to Zakharchenko's unemployed mother, father, sister, and even his 8-year-old daughter, as well as several high-priced SUVs Mercedes Benz, Porsche, and Lexus.
The Moscow City Court sentenced Mikhail Maksimenko to 13 years of strict regime and a fine of 165 million rubles ($2.7m) within the case of bribes from representatives of the criminal world. The ICR Colonel denied his guilt, calling the case a frameup.
