Boris Avakyan is accused of evading customs duties.
The St. Petersburg court extended the house arrest for two months to the former Deputy Head of the municipal Depatment of Rosreestr Boris Avakyan. The ex-official and a businessman is accused of evading customs duties (Art. 194 of the Criminal Code).
Avakyan was arrested in July during a meeting with the journalist and convoied to St. Petersburg, where he was charged. The former official Himself did not admit his guilt. The closed court hearing was held on August 25, but it became known that lawyers were asked to cancel the arrest and replace it with a bail of 5 million rubles, but the court has not accepted arguments of the defense.
The suicide of prominent politician and businessman Yuri Kotler has hit the headlines last week. Some people believe that he has laid hands on himself because of bankruptcy and career failures. Others suggest conspiracy theories, imply that it was not a suicide, and remind that Kotler was employed with a structure controlled by brothers Magomedov. Still others refer to his psychological problems originating from the childhood... But was his suicide note interpreted correctly?
