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.
In exchange for 12 million rubles ($202 thousand), Kirill Tabakov has ensured the release of third persons of their right to a number of real estate units in the center of Nizhny Novgorod to be replaced by a business class hotel.
According to the defense of ICR officers Nikandrov, Maksimenko, and Lamonov, arrested on suspicion of bribery, Denis Bogorodetsky has broken the crime scheme to the prosecution. The lawyers believe that due to this, the witness turned into a suspect a year after their clients.
Father of the former acting head of the MIA GUEBiPK (General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption) Viktor Zakharchenko, who is currently also under arrest, is the manager of the accounts in question. However, the ICR has information that the сolonel-millionaire has also had direct access to them.
