Lawyer disproved information concerning Belykh’s offer to give testimonies against Navalny in return for home arrest
New lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov Region Nikita Belykh accused of receiving 400 thousand euros as a bribe, disproved rumors of proposal made by Belykh to the authorities to leave to house arrest in exchange for testimonies against Alexey Navalny under the case of Kirovles.
This Andrey Grokhotov, who now defends Belykh in court instead of Olga Mikhaylova and Vadim Prokhorov told in Business FM interview, calling this information “spread of false stories” and “absolute provocation”.
The case against Alexey Navalny and Pyotr Ofitserov was recently transferred to court for a new trial.
“Nikita Yuryevich's position is categorical – he does not agree with the accusation, does not consider himself guilty, he is not a bribe taker, not a corrupt official. Therefore, even presumably there are no conditions for the deal”, lawyer emphasized.
To recall, information about the Belykh’s offer from the Presidential Administration was extended last week by Vedomosti newspaper. And three days ago it was also disproved by spokesman of President Putin, Dmitry Peskov, who called this information “factoid”.
