Defense of accused in riotmongering mathematician appealed against arrest
Dmitry Bogatov's lawyer insists that the reference to the political situation is not an excuse for choosing such a severe measure of restraint.
The defense appealed against the arrest of Dmitry Bogatov, a mathematics teacher at the Moscow Finance and Law Academy (MFUA), accused of calling for terrorism and organizing riots in the center of Moscow on April 2. This was announced on Wednesday, April 12, by the lawyer of Bogatov Vladimir Lebedev.
According to the lawyer, the court's reference to the political situation is not the basis for choosing the most severe preventive measure.
To recall, on Monday, April 10, the Presnensky Court of Moscow ruled to arrest mathematician Dmitry Bogatov until June 8.
The prosecution insists that Bogatov posted messages on the Internet in which he called for bringing "rags, bottles, gasoline, turpentine, foam plastic to the Red Square." The teacher himself states that he has not posted these messages. His lawyer stressed that the appeals were published under the pseudonym Airat Bashirov from several IP-addresses, including from Japan and the Netherlands, and only one of them corresponds to the IP address in Bogatov's apartment.
The investigation provided additional information for inclusion in the case materials during the third meeting. "Investigative bodies are asked to attach a letter from the FSB, which confirms that in the materials published in the network there are signs of calls for terrorism. Bogatov also has a valid foreign passport of the Russian Federation. We ask you to elect a preventive measure against the accused in the form of arrest," the investigator said.
The mathematician does not admit his guilt.
The air squadron number one in Russia ended up in the center of yet another scandal. It turned out that its special purpose aircraft are used, in addition to the national leaders, by outsiders. Uninvited passengers travel, stay in best hotels, and dine in deluxe restaurants at the budget expense. In fact, the discovery of stowaways on board is not the first scandal involving Russia Special Air Group that has been in distress for almost three years already. Why cannot the supreme FSB commanders using the official airplanes along with the Russian President sort out this mess?
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
