Ulyukaev allowed morning walks
Defense lawyers of the former Minister said in court that their client actually needs to be hospitalized.
The Moscow City Court found it lawful to extend the house arrest to ex-minister of economic development Alexey Ulyukaev, thereby declining the lawyers' motion to change the punishment.
Meanwhile, the court partially granted the request to allow daily walks to Ulyukaev. Now the former minister may walk two hours a day (from 7am till 9 am), although the lawyers had asked for four hours a day with two hours in the morning and two in the evening (from 6pm till 8pm). The attorneys rationalized the choice saying that there are few people outside at this time, and therefore there is no concern that Ulyukaev had a chance to meet with a witness in the criminal case while walking.
In addition, the lawyers stated at the court session that Ulyukaev needed to be hospitalized. However, the court did not hear any information about the state of health of the accused. Let us add that earlier, on April 12, the court allowed the ex-official to go to hospital.
As for the criminal case against Ulyukaev, no new details of the investigation were heard at the trial. Only counselor Viktoria Burkovskaya stated that the investigation was “nearing its end”.
“We are expecting findings of the experts studies”, she said.
We should remind that Head of the Ministry of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev was detained last November in the act of taking a bribe of $2 million. According to the Investigative Committee, the bribe was meant to get a certificate from the Ministry of Economic Development that allowed Rosneft to acquire a state stake in Bashneft.
