Arrest of former host of Sud Idyot extended
Vladimir Reznik, accused of large-scale swindling, will remain in custody until April, 26.
The Moscow Basmanny Court granted the petition of the investigation and left former host of the program Sud Idyot (the Russian for The Court is Now in Session) Vladimir Reznik in jail for another three months – until April, 26, TASS reports.
In turn, Reznik's protection petitioned for the election of a milder preventive measure – the house arrest, insisting that the defendant has made a deal with the investigation and fully admitted his guilt.
Recall that Reznik is accused of swindling. According to the case materials, for 4.5 million rubles the former host promised the businessman, charged with illegal banking activity, to agree on the appointment of a suspended sentence, but, in reality, could not influence the decision of the court.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
