Aman Tuleev undergoes rehabilitation in Moscow hospital, returns to Kemerovo
August 12, Head of Kuzbass (Kemerovo region) Aman Tuleev landed in the Kemerovo airport.
The governor had flown to Moscow from Kemerovo on an unscheduled flight. Several police cars and an ambulance met him, according to the local media. Moreover, Deputy Governor for Healthcare Valery Tsoy was there, too.
Aman Tuleev came to Moscow to undergo rehabilitation in a local hospital after a spine surgery done in Germany, as reported earlier by the CrimeRussia.
The politician stayed in the Kemerovo Hospital No. 3 after the surgery for a while before being transferred to Moscow for rehabilitation.
Aman Tuleev took a 10-day medical leave on May 22 but later extended it until June 19. He did not make any public appearances during this period. Rumor had it he might not get back from vacation and resign. However, the Kemerovo region Administration office of public affairs refuted the rumor and stated Tuleev is in good condition.
It is worth mentioning that the police is going to question Aman Tuleev as a witness in an extortion case. May we remind you that the police arrested Kemerovo Region Deputy Governors Aleksey Ivanov and Aleksandr Danilchenko and Russian Investigative Committee Kemerovo Region Department Sergey Kalinkin for alleged extortion in November of 2016. Tuleev said it is an attempt to put pressure on him.
Despite the fact that 2 years have passed since the criminal disassembly that turned into a slaughterhouse, the exact picture of what happened at the Elements restaurant on December 14, 2015, is still uncertain. The investigation of criminal cases and a whole series of major detentions, which entailed events of that evening, continue to this day. None of those who were involved in extortion, shoot-out and the protection of criminals has not yet been convicted. The CrimeRussia reconstructs the chronicle of the events of that day on the information available in the public domain and video recordings from CCTV cameras.
In the request sent by the Dozhd TV channel, there were no documents confirming violations committed by deputy Alexey Yezubov, said Natalya Poklonskaya, the head of the State Duma's commission for the control of declarations.
