Arrest of Vladivostok former Mayor Pushkarev extended
The official will remain in custody for another two months.
The Basmanny Court of Moscow extended the arrest of Vladivostok Mayor Igor Pushkarev, who is charged with commercial bribery and abuse of authority, the press service of the court reported.
It is noted that the investigation petitioned for the extension.
Previously, the CrimeRussia wrote that the house arrest of the Vladivostok Mayor's brother Andrey Pushkarev, the head of the company Vostokcement, who is also charged with the commercial bribery, was extended.
According to investigators, in 2009-2014, the Mayor organized the acquisition of a large batch of materials from Vostokcement by Roads of Vladivostok. As a result, the budget was damaged in the amount of 160 million rubles ($9 144 112 000).
It is noted that the court found it possible to leave Andrey Pushkarev under house arrest because he had previously received a serious injury of the face in the explosion of firecrackers and needs treatment.
