Prikamye Minister of Sports allowed walking more under house arrest
The Leninsky District Court of Perm softened the conditions of house arrest to the Minister of Physical Education and Sports Pavel Lyakh. In particular, it increased the daily walks from one hour to two and sometimes allowed going to the pharmacy, shops, laundry and hairdressing.
According to Kommersant, Lyakh's lawyers asked for this.
In addition, the court allowed Pavel Lyakh to communicate with his son, who lives separately, for two hours, two times a week.
Criminal proceedings against Pavel Lyakh were instituted by the Investigation Department of the regional FSB on October 3 under part 2 of Art. 285 (Abuse of Official Powers).
According to the investigation, Pavel Lyakh signed a certificate of acceptance of works executed related to the reconstruction of Dinamo stadium in Perm for the sum of 45 million rubles. However, at a consequence of the FSB, the cost of the work was overstated by 13.8 million rubles.
On October, 6 the court elected a preventive measure in the form of house arrest, although, the defense requested to leave him on bail of 1 million rubles. The house arrest of Sports Minister is extended to February 2017.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
