Former Deputy Voronenkov arrested in absentia
Investigators from the ICR Investigations Directorate have previously charged the former deputy, hiding in Ukraine, in absentia with the criminal case of the illegal seizure of a building back in 2011.
The Basmanny Court of Moscow has arrested in absentia former State Duma Deputy Denis Voronenkov on charges of swindling.
According to RIA Novosti, Voronenkov will be sent to a detention center for 2 months immediately after being detained or extradited to Russia. It is also reported that the investigation of Voronenkov's criminal case is extended until April 24.
Lawyer of the former Communist Party deputy Andrey Grivtsov has announced his intention to appeal the court's decision on Voronenkov's arrest in absentia. Voronenkov rejects the accusations of fraud, calling his prosecution by law enforcement agencies "unreasonable and illegal."
Denis Voronenkov's status in the criminal case of the illegal seizure of a building on Mezhdunarodnaya Street in Moscow in 2011 changed from witness to defendant in February 2017, after the termination of his deputy powers and the loss of immunity.
On March 3, he was declared internationally wanted as part of the criminal case. The ICR does not have reliable information about his whereabouts, however, the media had previously reported that the former deputy and his wife, an opera singer and a former United Russia deputy Mariya Maksakova-Igenbergs, are currently in Kiev.
