YAROSLAVL, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - The defence lawyers of Yaroslavl Mayor Yevgeny Urlashov will appeal against the court ruling about taking him into custody until September 2, this year.
Defence lawyer Sergei Golubenkov said, "We intend to appeal against the court ruling within three days". The lawyer's opinion is that a "normal judicial process" evolved on Friday. According to his data, Yevgeny Urlashov during the arrest will be kept in the Yaroslavl-based pre-trial detention center. He does not rule out a possible transfer of Urlashov to Moscow for further investigative actions.
A session was held at the Leninsky court of Yaroslavl on the night from Thursday to Friday to choose a measure of restraint for city mayor Yevgeny Urlashov, an Itar-Tass correspondent reports. The defence lawyers of Urlashov disagreed with the argument by the prosecution that Urlashov had been detained at 11:25, Moscow time, on July 3. They are ready to present an evidence that that happened at 01:05 on July 3.
At the court session, one of defence lawyers said he has available recordings from street video cameras showing the moment of detention. During the court proceedings, the defence presented an application from businessman Mikhail Prokhorov about choosing a measure of restraint for Urlashov in the form of release on a bail sum of 15 million roubles.
However, the court did not deem it necessary to choose such a measure of restraint. Despite the businessman's application and arguments of the defence, a measure of restraint for Yevgeny Urlashov was chosen in the form of taking him into custody for two months, until September 2, 2013.
