MOSCOW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow's Presnya court on Wednesday extended the arrest of Viktor Kotelevsky, director of the Konkord private security firm, suspected of masterminding illegal migration. His firm guarded the vegetable warehouse in the western Biryulyovo neighborhood.
"The court has found the investigator’s petition justified and met it," a judge said. Kotelevsky will remain in custody until March 16, 2014.
Earlier on Wednesday, the court extended the arrest of chairman of the board of directors of the vegetable warehouse Magomed Churilov to the same date.
Churilov and Kotelevsky had been charged with masterminding illegal migration.
The vegetable warehouse in Moscow's district of Biryulyovo was shut down after a rally of local residents protesting the high-profile murder of Muscovite Yegor Shcherbakov, 25, overnight to October 10. Angry residents gathered for a meeting on October 13 demanding that the killer be found and punished. They also insisted on checking all the migrants living in the area. They said the warehouse had given shelter to many illegal aliens and that the killer could be found nearby. The protest action escalated to riots in which police detained 400 people.
