MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — The Prosecutor General's Office /PGO/ said the evidence against Vladimir Glebov, the prosecutor of Noginsk, is insufficient for endorsing the indictment, and the court supported its position. Glebov is a suspect in the case over coving up illegal gambling business in the Moscow region.
Noginsk prosecutor was detained last March and charged with taking a bribe. Later, the investigator softened the charge ofr "exceeding office powers." Glebov was released on recognizance, and the episode of his involvement was separated from the main case and passed to the PGO for endorsing the indictment.
Glebov pleaded guilty and repented, and initially, plea bargain was planned.
On August 24, 2011, the criminal case against Glebov was forwarded to the PGO for endorsing the indictment and passing the case to a court. "On September 12, Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin issued a resolution to return the criminal case for additional investigation and elimination of shortcomings," a PGO official said.
Grin noted "significant contradictions between the results of the investigation and preliminary probe, which indicated that Glebov's guilt had not been proven."
"The investigator appealed the decision with Prosecutor General Yuri Chika, who confirmed the legitimacy and justifiability of his deputy's position. The defendant himself agreed with the indictment /exceeding of office powers/," the PGO official said.
"The Tverskoi court noted that Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin pointed out at a number of violations of the Criminal Procedure Code in investigating the criminal case. The investigators have not ascertained all the circumstances of the committed crime," the PGO said.
Taking into account these facts, the Tverskoi court ruled that Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika and his deputy Viktor Grin, when making the above procedural decisions, complied with the procedure of passing these decisions and their timeframe, and kept within the limits of their powers," the PGO said.
