Court extended arrest of Vladivostok ex-Mayor's brother
Andrey Pushkarev passes as a defendant in the case of a commercial bribery.
The Basmanny Court of Moscow upheld the house arrest of head of the Vostokcement company Andrey Pushkarev, who is the brother of the Vladivostok Mayor Igor Pushkarev. The latter, together with the director of the state company Roads of Vladivostok Andrey Lushnikov, is placed in the pre-trial detention center.
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.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
Several years ago, owner of two dozen companies and media sources Elada Nagornaya was called the richest wife of an official. Now her husband Oleg Sorokin is in a pre-trial detention center, and she has successfully left for Europe with other family members.
