MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. The Moscow city court on November 28 will look into the legality of the decision to put former Economic Development Minister Aleksey Ulyukayev, charged with receiving a $2 million bribe, under house arrest, Basmanny court spokeswoman Yunona Tsaryova told TASS.
"The appeal filed by Ulyukayev’s defense lawyers is due to be considered by the Moscow city court at 10:45 on November 28," she said.
The defense asks the Moscow city court to overturn the district court’s decision and select a milder restrictive measure for Ulyukayev.
Ulyukayev was detained on November 14 the moment he received a $2-million bribe in exchange for the Economic Development Ministry’s consent to give a go-ahead to the oil major Rosneft’s acquisition of a 50.08% stake in another oil company, Bashneft and put under house arrest. President Vladimir Putin on November 15 dismissed Ulyukayev from his ministerial job citing loss of confidence.
