MOSCOW, May 11 (RAPSI) - Leonid Melamed, former chief of the Russian nanotechnology corporation Rusnano who stands charged with embezzlement, has been released from house arrest, his attorney Ruslan Kozhura told RAPSI on Thursday.

The Investigative Committee claims that between 2007 and 2009, Melamed along with ex- corporation managers Andrey Malyshev and Svyatoslav Ponurov illegally transferred over 220 million rubles ($2.9 million) from Rusnano to Alemar Co. controlled by Melamed. The defendants pled not guilty.
