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 funeral of Amur crime boss Zaruba turned into a scandal. The witness filmed a funeral procession, which elongates for hundreds of meters, blocking the city streets. About a hundred people walked along the roadway behind the coffin. According to the author of the video, among those who carried the coffin of the lord, the heads of the local police and the Prosecutor’s Office were noticed. “So that I live and die,” thought the onlookers, who witnessed the procession.
