MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. Moscow’s garrison military court has arrested Gennady Lopyrev, general at the Russian Federal Protective Service (FSO) accused of bribery, until January 23, a TASS correspondent reported on Saturday.
The session of Moscow’s 94th garrison military court started at around 7:45pm Moscow time on Friday. The judge decided to hold it behind closed doors.
After several hours of consultations, the court announced only the operative part. "As a measure of restraint, Lopyrev will be arrested for two months, until January 23," judge Alexey Kolesnikov said.
The Russian Investigative Committee (IC) said earlier that a criminal case was opened against Gennady Lopyrev, head of the FSO’s Protective Service in the Caucasus, who is suspected of receiving bribes in especially large amounts from heads of several commercial structures for patronage in signing and fulfilling state contracts on carrying out construction and restoration works.
Lopyrev may face up to 15 years in prison and a large fine. He pleads not guilty.
