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 clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
