Сourt banned Navalny and Ofitserov leave Kirov till the end of process
The preventive measure in the form of a recognizance not to leave from the regional center is chosen to defendants in the case on the Kirovles’s property theft.
Opposition leader Alexey Navalny and entrepreneur Petr Ofitserov, accused of embezzlement of budget funds for the company Kirovles, remain in Kirov until the end of the trial - presumably until February 10. Spokeswoman of Navalny Kyra Yarmish wrote this in Twitter.
"A preventive measure is the recognizance not to leave Kirov,” she wrote in the microblog, adding that both defendants will stay at the hotel from 1 to 10 February.
Thus, the court ignored defense arguments that Navalny and Ofitserov had valid reasons for non-attendance at one of the meetings.
On the eve of January 31, media reported on hospitalization of Petr Ofitserov due to a sharp deterioration in health. Navalny, in turn, says that his "campaign" requires more attention.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
