Tatfondbank case: defendants' lawyers to appeal against the arrest
Lawyers of Merzlyakov, Abdulmanov and Timerbaev appealed to the Supreme Court.
Tatfondbank defendants' lawyers petitioned to the Supreme Court with the intention to appeal against the arrest of their clients. Defender of Rustam Timerbaev Ruslan Nagiev told this TASS.
"My colleagues (lawyers of Abdulmanov and Merzlyakov) and I appealed to the Supreme Court. The date of consideration of the appeal is not known. Most likely, it will be on Friday, February 17,”- said Nagiev.
His colleague, Moscow lawyer Irina Khrunova (formerly defended Pussy Riot), who represents the interests of Tatfondbank deputy chairman Vadim Merzlyakov, also informed the Agency that she appealed to the Supreme Court, adding that a hearing date has not been scheduled.
Earlier it was reported that on 10 February the Sovetsky District Court of Kazan granted the request of the main investigation department of the Interior Ministry about the arrest of Merzlyakov until April 2 on suspicion of funds embezzlement, transferred to the trust management of the company.
In addition, February 9, head of the active operations management Ilnar Abdulmanov and head of customer service of TFB-Finance (Tatfondbank's subsidiary) Rustam Timerbaev, who occupied similar positions in Tatfondbank too, were arrested.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
