Vyacheslav Gaizer not allowed to see his children
December 2, the Basmanny Court of Moscow did not satisfy the complaint filed by former Head of Komi Republic Vyacheslav Gaizer against the investigation's refusal to allow the visit of his son and daughter, whom he had not seen since September 2015.
Vyacheslav Gaizer's lawyer Leontyev applied for permission of family visits, to which the prisoner is formally entitled under the law.
In reality, for the time spent in the detention center, the former head of Komi Republic has been allowed only one visit, from his mother.
However, the investigation felt it inappropriate to allow visits, since this "could negatively affect the progress and results of the preliminary investigation."
Let us recall that former Head of Komi Republic Vyacheslav Gaizer was arrested on September 20, 2015. He was charged with organizing OCC and abuse of authority. 14 more ex-deputies and businessmen from Komi were arrested in this case along with him.
The Kuybyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg is to consider the third case against Barsukov (Kumarin), as part of which he is charged with criminal community creation. Previously, the 'night governor of St. Petersburg' had been held in the Moscow's Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center. It is also reported that Barsukov is to be questioned in the case of Galina Starovoytova's murder.
