Investigation requests court to extend arrest for Nikita Belykh
The investigation requests to extend the arrest of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, accused of bribery, until March 24.
"The court will consider the investigation's request on December 21," the Press Secretary of the Basmanny Court of Moscow Yunona Tsareva told RIA Novosti.
There is a criminal investigation into bribe-taking in the amount of 400 thousand euro against Belykh. The former Governor was caught red-handed in a Moscow restaurant on June 23. Belykh could not explain how or why he was carrying bundles of money with him; although, he does not consider himself a bribe-taker and intends to prove his innocence in court.
The suicide of prominent politician and businessman Yuri Kotler has hit the headlines last week. Some people believe that he has laid hands on himself because of bankruptcy and career failures. Others suggest conspiracy theories, imply that it was not a suicide, and remind that Kotler was employed with a structure controlled by brothers Magomedov. Still others refer to his psychological problems originating from the childhood... But was his suicide note interpreted correctly?
