Former Udmurt Republic Governor’s defense appeals his arrest
Aleksandr Solovyev’s attorneys appealed his arrest. May we remind you, court remanded Aleksandr Solovyev on suspicion of taking a bribe.
Former Udmurt Republic Governor Aleksandr Solovyev’s defense appealed his arrest, according to attorney Galina Gamburg as quoted by the Interfax News Agency. It has yet to be known whether the appeal was accepted or not, according to the attorney.
Aleksandr Solovyev was in good health when court imposed the pre-trial restriction on him, the attorney pointed out.
Solovyev was remanded for 2 months on April 4, as earlier reported by crimerussia.com. The public official is accused of taking a bribe. Solovyev was paid about 140 million rubles to use budget money to immediately pay for construction of bridges across the Kama and Buy rivers in the republic, according to a pre-trial investigation.
Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed the Governor due to loss of trust. Aleksandr Brechalov was appointed the acting Udmurt Republic Governor.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
