The trial of Marat Oganesyan to be held in closed session
The former Vice-Governor oversaw the construction of the stadium Zenit-Arena. The Oganesyan's case is aligned with it.
Representatives of the Investigative Committee issued a petition to the court to hold the trial of the former Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Marat Oganesyan behind closed doors, without the presence of the press.
The judge Olesya Bulanaya granted the motion of the investigation.
Recall that the FSB and ICR detained Marat Oganesyan on November 16 in Moscow, the Moscow region house belonging to him was searched.
On the same day he was transferred to St. Petersburg, where a day later he was charged with swindling in the case of Zenit-Arena stadium’s construction and the preventive measure was imposed in the form of arrest until 17 January.
Vladimir Vladimirovich Vladimirov became the Governor of the Stavropol Krai after staging the flight of his namesake – President Vladimir Putin – at the head of a flock of white cranes on the Yamal Peninsula. For almost five years since then, the Stavropol krai has been trying to get rid of such a ‘gift’. The region is plunging into crisis, corruption is flourishing, while officials from Governor’s close circle are prosecuted one by one. Local residents believe that law enforcement structures have declared a war on Vladimirov. Why can’t the FSB do anything with the Governor? And why is Moscow ignoring numerous requests to terminate Vladimirov?
