Ex-CEO of Meta Nikolay Martynov, who got penal for swindle during purchase of electronic bracelets for needs of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) of Russia, was released on parole. The Preobrazhenskiy court of Moscow passed this decision on Monday, September 25.

According to the investigators, in 2010-2012 Reymer created a criminal group, into which, besides two defendants mentioned above, retired colonel Victor Opredelenov entered.

As a result, the businessman whose case was considered in a special order was sentenced to three years and eight months.
