Vasilyeva's case: two other defendants may get out on parole
Earlier, the former deputy head of Oboronstroy was allowed to serve his sentence in a penal settlement.
Former deputy director of JSC Oboronstroy Yuri Grehnev, who is convicted of embezzlement of budget funds, can be released on parole, Rosbalt reported. He and his boss Larisa Egorina might be released in the spring of 2017.
According to a source of the edition, Yuri Grehnev had to be transferred in the pre-trial detention center № 5 in St. Petersburg after being sentenced to four years in prison. After a year in prison, Grehnev filed a petition to change the type of correctional institution for the penal settlement. As a result, judges decided to allow the appeal. It means a substantial commutation of his sentence's conditions: the management of the penal settlement may allow a prisoner living with the family, not only in the colony, but also outside.
