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.
A federal judge other than retired Catherine Forrest will consider the case of Razhden Shulaya, who is charged with the creation of a criminal syndicate and other crimes, in the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
