The court refused to release the ex-deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk Territory Shikhalev from the arrest

The Khabarovsk Regional Court did not satisfy the appeal of the former Deputy Chairman of the Khabarovsk Territory Vasily Shikhalev. The former official will remain under arrest until 17 May.

As EastRussia was told in court, the ex-deputy chairman’s complaint was not satisfied and they left Vasily Shikhalev under arrest for two months, as was the case decided by the central district court Khabarovsk.

Vasily Shikhalev in March became a defendant in the criminal case abuse of authority and fraud on a large scale. According to the investigators, he helped the company Asia Forest, which, despite the non-fulfillment of obligations for the development of woodworking production in the Sunny District, received from the federal budget more than one billion rubles subsidies. The company also illegally cut down the forest for more than nine million rubles.
