MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow's Preobrazhensky district court on October 11 will consider an investigator's petition to arrest Ilya Yukhman, police chief of the town of Noginsk, Moscow region, detained on suspicion of exceeding authority.
"The court extended Yukhman's detention to 72 hours at the defense's request, postponing the hearing to October 11:00 on October 11," his lawyer Vladimir Zherebyonkov told Itar-Tass.
An investigator said Yukhman had used, for personal needs, a Volkswagen which had been on the international list of stolen cars.
Yukhman's lawyer dismissed the charge, calling it "a soap bubble." He believes the criminal prosecution of his client was initiated under a far-fetched pretext.
