The ex-minister convicted the investigation of "the most severe pressure" and promised to indemnify loss to the victims if to prove it Mikhail Abyzov. Photo: Sergey Vedyashkin/AGN Moscow Moscow City Court recognized as lawful the decision on extension till July 25 of term of arrest to the ex-minister of affairs of the open government Mikhail Abyzov accused of establishing a criminal organization and plunder of 4 billion rubles. Protection insisted on its transfer under house arrest. At a meeting of emotion were in full swing, and defenders of the person involved competed with each other in legal rhetoric. The defendant accused the investigator of "the most severe pressure". In court of the second instance six lawyers of the ex-minister appealed against the decision of Basmanny Court of the capital which left on May 23 Abyzov in the pre-trial detention center for two months — till July 25. Then the special investigator at the chairman of SK Sergey Stepanov made a scandalous statement that at the defendant at searches was allegedly found by drugs. It became clear later that it was marijuana. The grass was found not in Abyzov's dwelling, and in one of the apartments rented by it. A complaint to the ex-minister in this regard was not made, and the administrative case concerning unidentified persons was submitted by police. To support the person involved to Moscow City Court on June 25 there arrived the former head of RUSNANO Leonid Melamed and also the young civil spouse of Valentin Grigoriev. The last was dressed in an effective red suit. Hearing began with an hour delay and lasted for 3.5 hours during which defenders suited to court the real legal educational program. They asked to cancel the decision of inferior court and to translate Abyzov under house arrest. Lawyers insisted that charge is "artificial and far-fetched", and the investigation did not produce the evidence of participation of Abyzov in the incriminated crimes. According to them, Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (establishing a criminal organization) was imputed to Abyzov excessively, and actions of the ex-official if have to have been treated somehow then or as "fraud in the sphere of business activity" (Article 159.4 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) which worked at the time of the incriminated events or as "causing property damage in especially large size" (Part 2 of Article 165 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). "It is not the tyrant, not the murderer, he did not make any socially dangerous acts" — Abyzov's lawyer Sergey Drozda appealed to court. And thanks to a performance of his colleague Dmitry Kravchenko attendees learned about "investigation mantras" and learned a new phrase: "immanent activity". Quite so the lawyer characterized actions of SK, having complained that "any of us can be flung in prison without any description [crime] tomorrow". He called illegal Abyzov's charge of establishing a criminal organization with use of official capacity. "It the same as to say: "At his place there is a gun therefore he shot Kennedy!" — the lawyer explained the thought. — I do not know that I will be made up the weight to businessmen tomorrow — terrorism or murders". In turn the investigator Sergey Stepanov and the representative of prosecutor's office supported leaving
