MOSCOW, May 16 (Itar-Tass) - Investigators will bring charges against chairman of Rosbank board Vladimir Golubkov later on Thursday, Golubkov's lawyer Dmitry Kharitonov told Itar-Tass.
"The investigators intend to bring charges against Golubkov today, and ask the court to arrest him," Kharitonov said.
According to the lawyer who expressed his concern over Golubkov's health, "investigative actions with his client have been conducted for ten hours."
"Golubkov suffers from high arterial pressure; I gave medicine to him yesterday; he also suffers from a heart disease and ten-hour investigative actions with him without a pause, food or drink are regarded by Golubkov's lawyers as a threat to his health, and, possibly, life."
The criminal case against Golubkov over commercial bribery was opened early on Thursday. The banker denied any wrongdoing.
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." The SK believes Golubkov illegally received more than one million dollars in 2012-2013.
