Rector of Ryazan State University Minaev court sent to detention center
University staff collected 400 signatures against the arrest of the detainee.
Ryazan’s Soviet District Court took the rector of the Ryazan State University named after S.A. Yesenin, Andrey Minaev, into custody until May 31 on charges of swindling and exceeding official powers. The detainee’s colleagues attended the hearing, as well as graduates and students of the university, who earlier collected 400 signatures against Minaev’s arrest, Komsomolskaya Pravda reports.
According to the investigation, in April 2018, the university management issued employee bonuses in amount of 1.2 million rubles ($ 18,500), but in fact the money was spent on organizing a reception for the inspection commission from Rosobrnadzor. About 40 people came to support the suspect in court, but the court refused the defense's petition for house arrest.
