MOSCOW, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian detectives help French partners in investigation of the murder of Russian businessman Mikhail Lanin in France, spokesman of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Thanks to constructive cooperation with French law enforcement agencies a team of French detectives from the country’s Justice Ministry and the Interior Ministry will visit Moscow within mutual performance of international legal instructions on February 10-14,” Markin said. “The Russian Investigative Committee will take joint effort in the criminal case against several defendants in the murder of Russian businessman Mikhail Lanin and attempted murder of his common law wife Yelena Pravoslavnova that were committed in France in 2011,” he said.
Markin noted that this work with French law enforcement agencies has become regular. “Several Russian detectives have also worked effectively recently in France in criminal cases opened in Russia within pleas for legal aid that promoted gathering and receiving additional evidence in crimes they are investigating,” the spokesman added.
He recalled that “mainly thanks to well-established cooperation with French prosecutors and possible participation of representatives of the Investigative Committee in court hearings in France over the extradition case (versus the finance minister of Moscow Region) Alexey Kuznetsov, the court ruled to extradite him to Russia.”
The armed attack on former general director of one of Russian leading glass-making companies OJSC Saratovstroysteklo Mikhail Lanin and his common law wife Yelena Pravoslavnova was delivered in France’s Nice on March 7, 2011, when they were on the way to the airport for a flight to Russia. Lanin died of wounds immediately, his common law wife was saved.
