Ex-head of the Ministry of Health of Transbaikalia left in custody until 10 June
The Zabaykalsky Regional Court denied the former Minister of Health of Transbaikalia, Mikhail Lazutkin, an appeal against the ruling of the court of first instance on the extension of his detention. In the detention center, the ex-official will stay until June 10.
Mikhail Lazutkin is accused of taking bribes on a large scale. According to the press service of the regional prosecutor's office, since the investigation of the case is not completed, the participants in the proceedings fear the pressure from the former official. The court also refused to allow Lazutkin to satisfy the appeal so that he could not escape.
The former minister was detained at the end of November 2017. According to investigators, he and the director of the Logistics Center agreed to cooperate with the head of a Moscow company supplying medical equipment. Officials provided the company with a victory at the auctions, and she in return gave part of the money received. According to the investigation, for two years Lazutkin received 16 million rubles of such awards.
