Extradited by Spain former factory head Leonid Parfyenov put to cell with footballer Mamayev
Entrepreneur Parfyenov charged with article "Fraud".
The namesake of a famous TV presenter, Leonid Parfyonov, the director of a tannery, extradited from Spain, will now be sharing a cell in a jail with a disgraced football player Pavel Mamayev.
Parfyenov was put on the international wanted list, detained by the Spanish police, after which he was escorted to the Butyrka pretrial detention center under escort. The entrepreneur is charged with the article "Fraud." Apparently they will have something to talk about, because according to the representative of the Public Observatory Commission of the capital, Parfyenov is interested in football and was even engaged in this sport while in a Spanish prison.
Parfyenov headed the Ostashkovsky tannery for about 20 years. In 2014, after financial problems at the enterprise, he became a suspect in a fraud case.
Footballers Pavel Mamayev and Alexander Kokorin will remain in isolation at least until April 8. Recall that the athletes are being held in custody for attacking a Moscow official and beating the driver of the First Channel.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
