MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Moscow is concerned over a US court’s decision to remand in custody Russian citizen Vadim Mikerin, which may indicate that the case is politicized, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov told TASS.
“Of course, this (decision by a US court to remand the Russian citizen in custody) is more than deplorable,” Dolgov said. “The arguments of the defense have been ignored. This decision and the whole case with Vadim Mikerin evokes deepest regret.”
“Such a decision by the US judiciary may be a sure sign the case is politicized,” the diplomat said.
He believes that some fundamental questions arise in the context of the bill of indictment. “At least regarding the circumstances of our citizen’s detention,” Dolgov said. “We shall go ahead with our support for the lawyers and the necessary consular and legal assistance to Mikerin,” Dolgov said.
Vadim Mikerin, 55, leads TENAM Corporation, a daughter company of Russia’s exporter Techsnabexport. In the United States, he is accused of extortion conspiracy.
