Lawyer calls Kirill Kokorin stupid
Earlier, the court extended the custody terms of Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev.
Kirill Kokorin’s lawyer Vyacheslav Barik asked the court to release the young man from custody, explaining the hooliganism he had committed by the silliness of his tender years. According to the lawyer, Kokorin Jr. has gone through enough for his age, Izvestia reports.
“How he (Kirill Kokorin - Ed.) can influence the investigator or witnesses, I do not understand. Of course, he is strong as well, but more stupid,” said Barik at the court hearing on the extension of his arrest.
The defendant himself pleaded partially guilty and stated that he and his brother had been inside enough. The court extended their custody term until February 8, that is, for another two months. The judge made the same decision regarding the other defendants: Alexander Kokorin, Alexander Protasovitsky and Pavel Mamaev.
The Investigations Directorate in the Leningrad Region of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) is going through turbulent times. After an unexpected replacement of the supreme command, the winds of change started blowing. Colonel of justice Pavel Vymenets, the new acting head of the agency, launched personnel reshuffles. According to sources, all means are used to purge the ranks from corrupt officers, including collection of compromising materials and denunciations.
