New episodes of bribery emerged in former Altay Region Vice-Governor’s criminal case
In the materials of the case against the former Vice-Governor of the Altai Region Yuri Denisov and his wife Tatiana, new episodes of taking bribes emerged. This was told at a press conference in the Siberian representation of Interfax by the Head of the Altai IC ID Eugeny Dolgalev.
Currently, the investigation examines the new facts. According to Dolgalev, the investigation will be completed before the end of the year.
The defendants are in pre-trial detention under the court decision until September. If necessary, the Denisovs’ arrest will be extended.
On the question of whether the former Vice-Governor and his wife admit their guilt, the Head of the Investigative Department of the Altai Region did not comment. It is to be recalled that retired at the beginning of March 2016 Vice-Governor of Altai and the Head of the regional department of education and youth became the persons of interest in the case on March 14.
Denisov was charged with attempted bribe-taking, and his wife - with bribery mediation. According to the materials of the case, the couple forced the employees of the educational institution controlled by Denisov to pay them a bribe in exchange for signing papers on the allocation of federal subsidies.
Saburova believes that the Russian authorities violated articles 2 and 5 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, guaranteeing the right to life, as well as the right to freedom and personal inviolability.
