Tracks of missing foreigner established: he definitely set foot in Moscow
However what happened to the British man after that is unknown.
The press service of Privolzhsky Transport Prosecutor's Office clarified what had happened to the English fan, Douglas Moreton, whom his relatives have been unable to contact for about a week already. The department confirmed that the man had safely got from Samara to Moscow. However, in the Russian capital, his tracks were again lost.
Earlier it was reported that Moreton reached Samara, after which he ceased to get in touch. July 7 saw the city hosting a match between the teams of England and Sweden.
The relations suggested that after the match the man returned to Moscow, as his credit card was later used in the Russian capital.
This version was corroborated in Privolzhsky Transport Prosecutor's Office. The department stated that the Englishman got into a Samara-Moscow train on July 10 and on July 11 arrived at Kazansky railway station in the capital.
The department added that the foreigner’s getting on and out of the train is confirmed by the footage from surveillance cameras. However, the further events remain unknown.
The British Embassy told RIA Novosti that they were in touch with the Russian authorities.
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.
