Ex-head of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky extended arrest
The court extended the term of house arrest to the former mayor of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Vitaly Ivanenko. He will remain under surveillance until March 17, 2020.
Earlier, the city court changed the measure of restraint in the form of house arrest to ban certain actions for two months and three days. Then the regional prosecutor's office filed an appeal, since the ex-official is suspected of committing particularly serious crimes. The court of appeal reversed the decision of the first instance.
According to the press service of the regional court, the trial court did not take into account that the witnesses and other accused in the case were acquaintances, relatives and former subordinates of Vitaliy Ivanenko. Being free, he can put pressure on them and interfere with the investigation. Therefore, the court decided not only to return the preventive measure, but also to extend its term.
The first to be prosecuted at the end of 2019 hit brother Vitaly Ivanenko, who was accused of mediation in receiving a bribe. After that, the mayor of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky resigned, motivating this by their health status and family circumstances.
