Ex-head of Moscow Region’s Klin District to stay in detention on abuse of office charges
MOSCOW, January 22 (RAPSI) – The Moscow City Court on Tuesday upheld a lower court’s ruling extending detention for the former head of the Moscow Region’s Klin District Alexander Postrigan, who stands charged with abuse of power and forgery, the court’s press service told RAPSI.
The defendant will remain in jail until January 27.
According to Russia’s Investigative Committee, between 2011 and 2013, Postrigan being the head of the Klin District’s administration, signed a dwelling-house operation commencement act in in breach of law. However, investigators believe that the defendant knew for a fact that the required works were not executed onsite and that there was a material inconsistency of the constructed facility to the planning documentation.
The building was commissioned, and people became inhabited there upon a program on removal from dilapidated housing. By now, defects that may lead to the building damage have been found, investigators claim.
