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.
On October 15, the Russian branch of Amnesty International reported on the abduction of its employee Oleg Kozlovsky by unknown persons during the monitoring of protests in Magas against the agreement on borders with Chechnya.
