Defendant in alcohol smuggling case makes a deal with investigation
Andrey Kindzerskiy, who stands accused in the case of alcohol smuggling, has made a deal with the investigation.
The lawyer Igor Reshetnikov, who defends the detained Deputy Head of the Forum holding company Boris Korevskoy, said that the other person involved in the criminal case of alcohol smuggling - the Deputy Head of Contrail Logistic Severo-Zapad Andrey Kindzerskiy – had made a deal with the investigation.
Reshetnikov stressed that he was unaware of what Kindzerkiy’s testimony was about. His client Korevskoy refused to testify, citing Article 51 of the Russian Constitution.
The lawyer neither confirmed nor disproved the theory that the General Director Yugo-Vostochnaya Torgovaya Kompaniya (South East Trading Company) Ilya Pichko, who had been released on bail of 10 million rubles, had also given testimony.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
