The footballers have submitted a request related to the transfer.
Pavel Mamaev and Aleksander Kokorin accused of manhandling and hooliganism have filed a request to change their preventive measure to a house arrest. This has been reported by a Moscow-based ombudswoman Tatiana Potyaeva.
“They asked to transfer them to the house arrest. An appropriate decision is expected to be made.” RIA Novosti quotes Potyaeva as saying.
On October 11, Moscow Tverskoy Court arrested Pavel Mamaev, Aleksander Kokorin, and his brother Kirill for 2 months. On October 8, in the morning, they manhandled Vitaly Solovchuk, a driver of a Channel One TV-host Olga Ushakova, at the Pekin hotel. Then, they attacked Minpromtorg’s (Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation) official Denis Pak, and NAMI’s (The Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute) Director General Sergey Gaisin.
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.
