Kokorin and Mamayev go on trial today
Shortly, Kokorin will be charged and sent to the detention center.
Footballers Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamayev will appear before the court on October 11, TASS quotes the Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Moscow. Athletes are detained for 48 hours after interrogation and are waiting for a preventive measure in the temporary detention center. Kokorin and Mamayev are suspects in Hooliganism (Article 213 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
Earlier, lawyer of Kokorin Umalat Saygitov said that the players repented and were ready to apologize to the victims. The lawyers have not yet received materials of the criminal case.
Recall, initially the law enforcement agencies initiated a case of battery, but then the charges were retrained for article hooliganism. Now the players face a far more significant period - up to seven years in a colony.
In late June 2019, the management of Development Corporation Joint Stock Company established in 2012 on the basis of Industrial Urals–Polar Urals Open Joint Stock Company was changed. This infamous corporation was repeatedly involved in corruption scandals. Notorious oiler and millionaire Sergei Maslov was its General Director in 2013–2016. In fall 2016, Maslov was arrested for embezzlements – but somehow, the court acquitted him. Immediately after the acquittal, he relocated abroad. The CrimeRussia reviewed the main ‘failures’ of the ‘unsinkable’ corporation, shady schemes pulled off by Maslov and his partners, and connections of the oligarch who has made enormous money on governmental projects. Surprisingly, but the information presented below hasn’t attracted the attention of the law enforcement authorities yet.
