The Summa Group owner has already changed five prison cells.

Ziyavudin Magomedov, the man arrested in the case of the Summa Group, has just moved to his fifth cell in the Lefortovo detention center, Izvestia said quoting Ivan Melnikov, the executive secretary of the Moscow Public Monitoring Commission (PMC).

One of the reasons the businessman has to move so often is the fact that he does not like the prison conditions, such as no TV and a smoker as a cellmate.

However, the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) named a different reason for the moves, saying one of the buildings is getting renovated. Experts still believe that this all must be associated with the PMC being extra concerned about the incarceration conditions of the Magomedov brothers.

The Summa Group owners, the brothers Ziyavudin and Magomed are accused of fraud, embezzlement on an especially large scale and creation of a criminal group. They are charged with stealing 2.5 billion rubles ($39.5m) and were apprehended on March 31 this year.

Magomedovs’ bank accounts and money have been attached. A conservatory attachment was also imposed on four cars, two apartments and a share in the authorized capital of the legal entities.
