Former Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg transferred from Kresty to prison hospital
The transfer has been agreed with the pre-trial detention medical service.
Former Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Marat Oganesyan, a suspect in the embezzlement of 50 million rubles in the construction of Zenit Arena, was transferred to the prison hospital.
Life clarified, the transfer to the FSIN inter-regional hospital n.a. Gaaz from the pre-trial detention center Kresty, which took place the day before, was planned. Oganesyan was placed into a hospital due to the deteriorating of health, but a medical ambulance was not necessary.
On November 17 the suspect has brought to the hospital with complaints of poor health, but after a three-hour examination Oganesyan returned to the ward.
Recall that the former official may be released from custody just this week. Oganesyan's protection intends to prove in the court on December 7 that the decision to arrest the former Vice-Governor until January 2017 has a grave mistake. Lawyers will insist that Oganesyan leaves the prison on 9 of December, so this day the preliminary investigation expires.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, Marat Oganesyan is accused of especially large-scale Swindling (part 4, Art. 159 of the Criminal Code). According to investigators, the ex-official, who oversaw the construction of the stadium Zenit Arena from 2013 to 2015, illegally attracted Stock Company TDM as a sub-contractor for the construction work, and then transferred it the amount of more than 50 million rubles as advance, which was withdrawned through short-lived companies.
