Court extends investigation of “cocaine case” until July 15
Thus, the investigation period is extended to eight months.
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow extended the terms of the investigation for the so-called “cocaine case” until July 15, 2018, reports Interfax.
The agency specifies that thus, the terms of the investigation have been increased to eight months.
As previously reported, the Moscow City Court recognized the arrest of Andrey Kovalchuk in absentia as legitimate. He is the defendant in the case of smuggling cocaine from Argentina to Russia and was detained and taken into custody in Germany at the request of Moscow.
The scandal erupted in February this year when in the school of the Russian Embassy in Argentina suitcases with 362 kg of cocaine were found. As it turned out, a group of people intended to transport it on the plane of the diplomatic mission to Russia.
However, the transportation of cargo (by that time the security agencies replaced the drug with flour) was already under the control of operatives. As a result, in Moscow, the former registrar of the Russian embassy in Argentina, Ali Abyanov, as well as entrepreneurs Vladimir Kalmykov and Ishtimir Khudzhamov were detained.
In October 2017, Valiulin at a meeting of the Human Rights Council under the President of Russia suggested introducing the responsibility of the parents and teachers of those teenagers who participate in uncoordinated political actions.
The former head of Dagestan defended ex-Mayor of Makhachkala Sayid Amirov, former Head of the Pension Fund of the Republic Sagid Murtazaliev, ex-Prime Minister Abdusamad Gamidov and his deputies and ministers, the co-founders of the Summa Group, the Magomedov brothers, as well as his brother Radzhab.
