MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. A suspect in the fraud case launched against the former governor of the Komi Republic, Vyacheslav Gaizer, has committed suicide in a Moscow pre-trial detention center, the Russian Investigative Committee said on Thursday.
"A probe has been launched into this incident," the committee’s press service stated.
Anton Fayershtein, 42, was found dead in his cell on August 9, media reports said. Fayershtein’s lawyer Vyacheslav Leontyev told TASS that his suicide was caused either by the pressure put on him during the investigation process, or in a conflict with cellmates.
Last September, Moscow’s Basmanny sanctioned the arrest of 15 high-ranking officials of the Komi Republic, including its governor Vyacheslav Gaizer, charged with organizing a crime network and fraud.
