Kokorin ignores police summon for questioning
The football player’s lawyer asked to hold the questioning on October 11.
Only Pavel Mamaev came to the police station for interrogation. The MIA is deciding whether to place Kokorin on the wanted list. His lawyer Umalat Saygitov asked to postpone the deadline to October 11 but the investigator has not yet responded, the news agency Moskva reports.
According to Saygitov, Kokorin did not have the opportunity to arrive at the police station today. Pavel Mamaev came at 16:40. The MIA set the deadline until 18:00, otherwise – the federal wanted list.
On Wednesday, October 10, the criminal case of football players was requalified from the beating to a more grave crime – hooliganism. If earlier the persons of interest faced imprisonment up to two years, now it is up to seven.
On Monday, October 8, Kokorin, Mamaev and a number of unidentified persons, while drunk, attacked the driver of TV host Olga Ushakova. They injured his head and broke his nose. Then, the young people quarreled in a café with Denis Pak, a federal official from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Sergey Gaysin, the CEO of the FSUE NAMI. Kokorin quickly moved from words to deeds — he hit Pak in the face with a chair, then the rest of his friends joined the brawl.
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.
