MOSCOW, May 16 (Itar-Tass) - Civil Platform Party leader, business tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov has signed a petition asking the court not to arrest chairman of Rosbank's board Vladimir Golubkov, suspected of commercial bribery,
"Mikhail Prokhorov has signed the petition," Civil Platform spokeswoman Tatyana Kosobokova told Itar-Tass.

Rosbank board chairman Vladimir Golubkov and senior vice-president of this loan institution Tamara Polyanitsyna were detained in Moscow on Wednesday. Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass that a criminal case had been opened against Golubkov and his subordinate over "commercial bribery in an especially large amount."
