MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow City Court on Monday said leading Bolshoi Theatre /GABT/ soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko, a suspect in the case over attack on GABT art director Sergei Filin, will remain under arrest.
In March Dmitrichenko was charged with malicious infliction of harm to health. If convicted, he may face up to 12 years in prison.
The Taganka district court sanctioned Dmitrichenko's custody until August 17, and Dmitrichenko's lawyer Violetta Volkova lodged an appeal.
The 42-year-old ballet art director was attacked near his house Troitskaya Street in Moscow late in the evening of January 17. An unidentified man splashed acid in his face and fled the scene. Filin was hospitalized with serious face and eye burns.
Police arrested Bolshoi Theatre leading soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko as suspected mastermind, perpetrator Yuri Zarutsky who has a criminal record and driver Andrei Lipatov who the investigators believe had brought Zarutsky to the scene of crime.
