Сourt arrested Novgorod Deputy Ivlev for 2 months
Novgorod regional Duma Deputy from the Edinaya Rossiay faction Yuri Ivlev is arrested by the Moscow Ostankino court until 7 February 2017 on charges of $ 2 million swindling.
According to Interfax, a measure of restraint in the form of detention was elected to Ivlev, because the court did not consider it possible to release him on bail (the agency reported on the amount of $ 5 million, which was proposed by relatives of 33-year-old parliamentarian) or under house arrest.
Earlier, the ICR reported that with regard to Ivlev, who was detained in Moscow on the eve when receiving a bribe, a criminal case was initiated under Swindling on an especially large scale (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code).
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported that, according to investigators, Yuri Ivlev suggested a mediator of the defendant involved in the case of 2-million-dollar bribe to soften the measure of restraint. The MP assured that he could affect through a friend in law enforcement body.
Minister of the Chechen Republic for National Policy, Dzhambulat Umarov, noted that there are a huge number of cases all over Russia, when people, wearing camouflage uniforms, do "not very plausible things."
Today, St. Petersburg tensely awaits two important political events for the city. Election of the governor and the rotation of the heads of power structures. The prosecutor of the city Sergey Litvinenko is again named the first in the line of generals. The CrimeRussia is trying to find out whether there are any compelling reasons for this.
