MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow's Presnya court to met the investigator's petition to place senior vice-president of Rosbank Tatyana Polyanitsyna under house arrest.
"I support the investigator's petition while taking into account the parties' positions," the prosecutor said at the hearing.
The lawyer objected to the petition, saying her client "admitted her guilt." She participates in all the investigative actions exposing Mr Golubkov's actions," the lawyer said.
He also said Polyanitsyna has a daughter, who has been handicapped from birth, and that her parents are very old.
If the court selects house arrest for Polyanitsyna, it will permit her visit her parents, have walks on the premises of her apartment house, and shop at the Perekryostok store. It will only ban her communication with the persons involved in the criminal case."
Polyanitsyna said her father had intestinal cancer and that her mother suffered from diabetes. "I would like you to take into account these circumstances," she said.
Earlier reports said she had been offered to sign a plea bargain agreement.
Rosbank head Vladimir Golubkov is accused taking a bribe, and Polyanitsyna is accused of abetting the crime. The investigator said the Rosbank head had illegally received more than one million dollars in 2012-2013.
