From case of ex-Senator Tsybko video about his connection with Shakro Molodoy excluded
The evidence of connection with Shakro Molodoy was excluded from the case of ex-Senator Tsybko.
The Ural Prosecutor's Office decided that the video from the Yekaterinburg restaurant, on which it was fixed how the former member of the Federation Council told about the pressure of Shakro Molodoy’s Ural emissaries on him, should be excluded from the materials.
Tsybko noted that this was the only recording, on which he communicated with the owner of the trust Magnitostroy, Oleg Laknitsky. Although, according to the materials of the criminal case, the former Senator assisted and patronized him.
Recall that Senator Tsybko is accused of bribe-taking from Tarasov in the amount of 18 million rubles for the appointment him the Head of the Ozersk district Administration. Businessman Laknitsky previously told investigators that Konstantin Tsybko received from him a bribe of 10 million rubles in exchange for his assistance in his business activities.
Tsybko’s former assistant Anna Romanova told the court that she had never heard of City Manager Tarasov until his appointment and had not seen him with Tsybko.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
