Monaco police rally in support of defendants in Rybolovlev’s case
Earlier, the head of the Principality’s judicial police, Christophe Agay and his deputy, Patrick Fusari, were accused of corruption and trading in influence.
In Monaco, about a hundred policemen dressed in civilian clothes gathered in front of the court building as a sign of support for the head of the principality’s judicial police Christophe Agay and his deputy Patrick Fusari, who are accused of corruption and trading in influence, the newspaper Nice-Matin reports.
On November 6 the law enforcement authorities of Monaco brought a similar accusation against the Russian Forbes list billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, the owner of the Monaco FC and former head of Uralkaliy. The businessman was released under judicial control.
Moreover, according to Monaco-Matin, “almost the entire former composition of the judicial system of Monaco, up to the highest levels,” as well as former adviser to the government of the principality Paul Masseron and former head of the security service Regis Asso, were detained as well. In the phone of Rybolovlev’s lawyer Tatyana Bersheda, the investigators found correspondence with high-ranking police and judicial officials. Rybolovlev allegedly tried to influence the course of the trial in the case of fraud against art dealer Yves Bouvier.
