MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow City Court on Friday extended the arrest term to Moscow region’s former prosecutor, Alexander Ignatenko, who had been extradited from Poland to Russia in the ‘gambling case,’ till July 1.
Presiding Judge Nikolai Tkachuk ruled to satisfy the investigator’s request and extend the term of arrest till July 1. According to the court ruling, the court has found no circumstances why he cannot be kept in the detention ward. “The prosecution’s request to extend the arrest term is justified,” the document says.
Over this period, investigators plan to organize “several face-to-face interrogations with witnesses and with another accused, Dmitry Urumov, former chief of a Moscow region prosecutor office’s department.” It is not ruled out that the pre-trial investigation against Igantenko will be completed.
The former prosecutor is charged of a group’s bribe-taking to a sum of over 33 million roubles (part 4, article 290 of the Russian Federation’s Criminal Code).
