Zakharchenko: imprisoning me is ridiculous
The Colonel’s lawyer said Zakharchenko is ready to speak of all the details of the December 25 meeting when he reportedly took the bribe.
The lawyer defending Dmitry Zakharchenko, the Acting Head of Department T of the MIA Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption, spoke of the official’s prison life.
“He is in combative mood, ready to maintain his innocence in the criminal case. He said he knew who was behind this”, said Aleksandr Lebedevich. “All in all, everything is fine, the situation itself is not legitimate and there is no evidence of his involvement. He is an operational officer and he knows how cases like this are made. He finds it ridiculous that he is expected to spill his guts to the other inmates. He takes pure drinking water, does push-ups and other exercises".
The lawyer also mentioned that Zakharchenko wants to speak of all the details of the December 25 conversation, when he reportedly took the bribe.
“He remembers all, he knew CCTV was operating, the conversation was bold”, the lawyer said. “There is just one criminal case with three component elements: bribery, abuse of power and obstruction of investigation. Next week, Dmitry Zakharchenko will address the court and tell everything”.
