MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Investigative Committee is handling two cases against Yaroslavl mayor Yevgeny Urlashov and his accomplices, and will insist on suspending the mayor, the SK press service told Itar-Tass.
"The criminal cases were handed over to the SK department for the Central Federal District because there are many episodes of crimes, and also because investigation must be conducted both in the Yaroslavl region and elsewhere. The videos of television programs featuring the suspects were seized in the regional mass media. They will be used in phonoscopic examination to identify the voices captured on detectives' audio recording," the SK said.
"The questionings of the suspects are continuing. The investigators plan to ask the court in the near future to suspend the Yaroslavl mayor," an SK representative said.
The Investigative Committee is checking the whole period of Urlashov's work as mayor. Investigators may expose new facts of his illegal actions.
Yevgeny Urlashov, his deputy Dmitry Donskov, head of the Town Hall agency for municipal procurements Maxim Pikalainen and mayor's aide Alexei Lopatin are accused of an attempt to take a large bribe. Andrei Zakharov is accused of attempting to mediate the bribe. In the second criminal case, Yevgeny Urlashov is accused of taking a 500,000-rouble bribe.
Urlashov, formerly a United Russia member, planned to lead the regional list of the Civil Platform Party at the upcoming elections to the regional parliament on September 8.
