FSO detaines two FBK lawyers on Rublevka
Vyacheslav Gimadi and Alexander Golovach studied the register of the Moscow Region “palaces” owners.
Employees of the Federal Security Service (FSO) detained lawyers from the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) Vyacheslav Gimadi and Alexander Golovach and brought them to the Barvikhinsky MIA Department, Alexey Navalny reported on his Twitter page. According to the oppositionist, “the lawyers did the usual work of analyzing the owners of elite palaces on the basis of the public register.”
“I and @aa_golovach were detained on Rublevka by FSO officers on two Fords, with dogs and special equipment, [we were] taken to the Barvikhinsky police department. The police officers do not see grounds for detention but the FSO officers convincingly ask them “to charge these with something,” writes Gimadi from the police station.
Three hours later, the lawyers still did not get any explanation for the detention.
Preliminary hearings of the case pertaining to embezzlements committed during the construction of notorious Zenit Arena haven’t commenced yet – but the trial of Marat Oganesyan already ceased to be monotonous. The former Deputy Head of the St. Petersburg Municipal Administration has directly hinted at the involvement of his successor – current Vice Governor Albin – in the embezzlement of billions of rubles.
