Doctors still cannot diagnose Nikita Belykh’s illness
As the former Kirov Region Governor’s attorney told media outlets, doctors have yet to diagnose Nikita Belykh’s illness.
The Matrosskaya Tishina Prison doctors cannot diagnose the civil servant’s illness, according to the attorney. May we remind you that Belykh was transferred to the Matrosskaya Tishina Prison from the Lefortovo Prison due to health issues.
“Specialists have Belykh's samples taken every day. They also examine him and perform ultrasonography. However, they are still to come up with a diagnose. But they are examining him thoroughly,” the attorney pointed out. May we remind you that Nikita Belykh was transferred to the Matrosskaya Tishina Prison from the Lefortovo Prison due to a leg problem, as earlier reported by the CrimeRussia. Back then, Belykh complained that he could not walk properly and was worried he could end up being handicapped.
May we also remind you that the Moscow City Court ruled Nikita Belykh was arrested lawfully. The decision was made on January 20, 2017. The court also extended his detention in the framework of the investigation until March 24. The former Kirov Region Governor is accused of taking a 400-thousand-euro bribe. Nikita Belykh took the money in exchange for endorsing interests of the Novovyatsky Ski Plant and Leskhozyaystvenny Holding Company, according to the investigation.
Initially, the defendants in the case had been charged with embezzlement through swindling in the amount of 225 million rubles ($3.3 million). In the final version of the indictment, the article was changed to 1.5-billion-ruble ($22.45 million) embezzlement.
