The case of ex-presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishaev will be considered in Moscow, not in Khabarovsk. The Supreme Court ordered the hearing of the criminal case in the Zamoskvoretsky Court of the capital at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office.

This is reported by the radio station BusinessFM... Initially, the hearing was supposed to take place in Khabarovsk, at the scene of the crime. However, the Prosecutor General's Office is confident that Ishaev has great influence there and this may interfere with the consideration of the case in the region.

Viktor Ishaev's lawyers do not agree with this decision, arguing that most of the witnesses live in Khabarovsk and will not be able to come to Moscow. They are preparing to appeal.

Prosecutor General's Office approved the indictment on the criminal case of ex-presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Viktor Ishaev. He will have to answer in court for organizing the embezzlement.

At the end of March 2019, Ishaev charged in fraud. Last April, the Moscow City Court refused to release him from under house arrest, compensation for damage and a bail of 15 million rubles did not help. Recently, the investigation stated that it did not find any signs of deception or abuse of trust in the crime and re-qualified the case.
