The court prolonged the arrest of Vyacheslav Gaizer, the former head of Komi Republic
By the decision of the Moscow City Court, the former head of the Komi Republic and five other defendants will remain in custody until September 20th.
The Investigation of the case is about to be completed, but there are still series of examinations and questionings to be done.
Thus, the court turned down Vyacheslav Gaizer's request to change the measure of restraint to house arrest, which he addressed to the judge during the hearing, by expressing a willingness to cooperate with the investigation and get to the bottom of the case.
It had no effect on the judge, as the statement of his lawyer, Darya Evmenina, that investigative materials, as the certificate about financial investigation in particular, do not confirm the involvement of Gaizer in the actions, which he is being accused of. Therefore, the court's deceision to arrest Gaizer is necessary to cancel.
Along with the principal accused, there are still five former officials of Komi Republic in the detention center - Mikhail Khruzin, Alexey Chernov, Igor Kovzel, Valery Kudinov and Lev Libenzon.
Recall, that Gaizer and 19 Komi administration officials were arrested last fall on charges of abuse of authority and organizing of criminal associations.
