Nikita Belykh seeks transfer from Lefortovo to Matrosskaya Tishina hospital
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
According to Grokhotov, Nikita Belykh suffers from diabetes mellitus, and his eyesight fades; moreover, last week, he had a hypertensive crisis. Because of this, Belykh was unable to take part in the hearing of his appeal against the extension of the term of arrest until February 4, 2018. As a result, the Moscow City Court considered the appeal without the accused.
As for the transfer to the hospital, no response has been received, the lawyer noted. The application has been submitted; now they are waiting for confirmation from the hospital.
To recall, the CrimeRussia has previously reported that the Moscow City Court had extended Nikita Belykh's term of arrest until February 4 next year. The former official is accused of bribery. Nikita Belykh does not admit his guilt. Consideration of the case on the merits began in early September in the Presnensky District Court of Moscow.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
