Fourth person involved in case of Kokorin and Mamaev stays in custody
All the defendants will remain in custody until December 8.
The Moscow City Court has left football player Alexander Protasovitsky, who is the fourth person involved in the case of Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, under arrest. All the defendants will be held in the Butyrka pre-trial detention facility until December 8.
“Affirm the decision of the Tverskoy Court, the petition of the defense is not to be met,” Judge Yulia Manerkina announced the verdict.
In court, the defendants spoke from the detention center via video conferencing. Alexander Kokorin, asking for a mitigation of the pre-trial restriction measure, wept. Pavel Mamaev once again stated that he allegedly has nothing to do with one of the incidents.
It is to be recalled that brothers Alexander and Kirill Kokorin, Pavel Mamaev and Alexander Protasovitsky are accused of attacking the Ministry of Industry and Trade official Denis Pak, the CEO of FSUE NAMI, Sergey Gaysin and a TV host driver, Vitaly Solovchuk. Criminal proceedings were instituted under the articles on hooliganism and assault and combined into one proceeding. The perpetrators face up to seven years in prison.
The release of authoritative thief-in-law Tariel Oniani (Taro) became a milestone event for the criminal world. The conflict with followers of Ded Khasan was put on hold for the duration of his almost 10-year-old prison term – the rival parties were waiting for the first steps of Taro. However, the law enforcement authorities decided to procrastinate the intrigue further and detained the crowned thief for 40 days immediately after his release. Still, taking that ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy is serving a prison term, his successor Shishkan keeps low profile, while other thieves-in-law are either abroad or disorganized, Taro has a chance to reassert himself as a serious power.
