Moscow City Court left founder of Smotra.ru Kituashvili under arrest
Video blogger Davidych will remain in a pre-trial detention center till February, 21.
The Moscow City Court left founder of community Smotra.ru Eric Kituashvili known as Davidych in custody.
Earlier the decision on prolongation of term of arrest for the video blogger till February, 21 was made by the Tverskoy Court of Moscow, however lawyers of the defendant submitted the appeal in the Moscow City Court.
Eric Kituashvili was detained at the beginning of 2016 on suspicion of a swindle. According to the investigators, the founder of Smotra.ru with accomplices faked stealing of expensive cars for receipt of an insurance. The damage exceeded 1.3 million rubles.
Kituashvili claims that his arrest is connected with investigations over corruption of the high-ranking police officers. Thus, during one of meetings of the Tverskoy Court of Moscow he declared that his colleagues have proofs of obtaining by Yakunin and his subordinates of a bribe in the amount of 3,5 million dollars from Kovalenko and Vasyuta for ‘sale’ of a position of the head of traffic police of the capital. Later Yakunin submitted a claim for honor and dignity protection against Kituashvili.
Police officers took Kristina Morozova to a police station to check her identity, where she ended up getting a closed craniocerebral injury, minor cerebral contusion, fissure fracture of her cheekbone, fracture of her left sphenoid bone, and large leg bruise.
Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
