Deputy Notyag may be relocated to house arrest
Attorneys of accused for accepting a bribe Vyacheslav Notyag, the deputy of the Legislative Assembly of Saint Petersburg, are willing to demand from the court to transfer defendant to house arrest, said PR-representative of the deputy.
Recently Notyag had an ischemic stroke, he was on a life support on 26th of May, and now he’s in the hospital of FPCS (Federal Penal Correction Service).
The deputy’s term of arrest is going to end on 21th of June. The hearing for Notyag’s case will be held in the same place, on 20th of June. During that exact hearing his representatives are planning to apply for change in preventive measures of the deputy due to his health condition, although, doctors say that he’s feeling fine.
Let’s remind that St-Petersburg’s parliamentarian was caught red-handed by FSB (Federal Security Service) personnel. He’s accepted the bribe from the manager of construction company “Voin-V”. Notyag received 600 thousand rubles for his non-interference in construction works of this particular company. According to data from investigators, this already happened earlier, when the same manager of “Voin V” handed to Notyag payoff in the amount of 900 thousand rubles. The deputy denies his guilt.
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?
