Drymanov preparing complaints left with no fridge, TV in Lefortovo jail
The only thing the general has in the cell is a plastic tub.
Alexander Drymanov, the former Moscow head of the Investigative Committee’s Central Directorate, who was accused of taking bribes from the men of the thief in law Shakro Molodoy, has refused to talk to the PMC. The general said he would represent himself in court and would make a formal complaint about not having a refrigerator in his cell.
"I am a lawyer. So I will be representing myself. Now, for example, I do not have a refrigerator. Well, I don’t need it anyway; I’m going to move to another cell soon. But if there is none there either, I will make a complaint. I am a lawyer, so I know the law", Mash quoted the silovik as saying.
The general is currently in a solitary cell of a remand prison. According to Ivan Melnikov, the executive secretary of the Public Monitoring Commission (PMC), Drymanov does not have a TV or a refrigerator in his cell.
The general’s personal belongings were taken away for sanitation, which is why the former Moscow head of the ICR is now wearing a black prison uniform. They gave him a plastic tub and toiletries. According to Melnikov, the prisoner has not complained about anything.
Drymanov was detained on July 16 on suspicion of bribe-taking. The FSB believes that the former Moscow chief of the ICR had agreed to pull some strings and have Shakro Molodoy’s crony Andrei Kochuykov released from jail, where he is serving time for the Rochdelskaya shootout.
The former official pleaded not guilty stating he was ready for the "legal battle" and intended to appeal his imprisonment. Later Drymanov said he did not need any lawyers and he was going to be the one representing himself in court.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
