Former Governor of Kirov region Nikita Belykh, who was arrested in the case of receiving a bribe, refused the services of lawyers representing his interests previously, Vadim Prokhorov and Olga Mikhailova, who now will focus on the “charged”, reports RBC.
“We are constantly engaged in a different process and have no possibility daily to go to the detention center “Lefortovo”, where it contains White,” – said Mikhailov. According to her, now ex-Governor of the Kirov region protects the attorney Screens.
Sam Trammel has already confirmed that he was to represent the interests of Whites. “I’ve taken subscription about nondisclosure, so I can’t comment on the course of the preliminary investigation,” – he said (quoted by “Interfax”). Thus journalists note that, in addition to Grokhotova, with the ex-Governor also works the lawyer Alexey Grebensky.
