The Moscow City Court has extended to August 13 the arrest of ex-banker Alexei Frenkel
The Moscow City Court has extended to August 13 the arrest of ex-banker Alexei Frenkel, who is accused of masterminding the murder of the Central Bank’s first deputy chief Andrei Kozlov. The court turned down an appeal by Frenkel’s lawyers who asked for releasing him from custody. The court agreed with arguments of prosecutors, who said that Frenkel could flee from the investigation or put pressure on witnesses. “I consider today’s court decision as unlawful and I shall appeal it,” lawyer Igor Trunov told reporters. Frenkel, 35, is charged with masterminding the killing of Kozlov, who was shot to death in Moscow on September 13, 2006. According to investigators, Frenkel had a relation to the establishment of banks, in particular of VIP-Bank and Sodbiznesbank. Prosecutors are of the opinion that the “suspect incurred multibillion losses” as a result of Kozlov’s stripping of licenses of banks involved in money laundering. Suspect perpetrators of the crime were detained in last year’s October and intermediaries in November and December. Frenkel was detained on January 11 this year. In May, the Moscow City Court recognised the charges against Frenkel as valid.
