Public Monitoring Committee tells about Alexander Kokorin’s cellmate
In the pre-trial detention center, the football player shares his cell with a “seemingly intelligent man” who did not pay taxes.
Zenit FC football player Alexander Kokorin, who is held in Moscow’s Butyrka shares his cell with a Muscovite Dmitry, who is accused of malicious tax evasion, member of the Public Monitoring Committee Ivan Melnikov reported.
“The name is Dmitry. He is older than Alexander by only few years. He looks like an intelligent person, not some dangerous criminal,” RT quoted the human rights activist.
It is to be recalled that Alexander and Kirill Kokorins, Pavel Mamayev and Alexander Protasovitsky were transferred from the quarantine to double cameras with refrigerators and TVs. Kokorin Sr. even has a video intercom via which the football player can get in touch with the prison staff. They are accused of hooliganism and beatings will be held in custody until December 8.
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.
