The Supreme Court of Yakutia rejected the appeal of the defense of the chief engineer of the Mir mine, Alexander Mann. He is suspected of violating safety rules during mining operations, which led to the flooding of the mine and the death of eight people.

According to the channel "Yakutia 24", the court did not satisfy the appeal of the arrested person, he will be in the pre-trial detention center at least until December 1 of 2019. Alexander Mann was detained in early October this year along with Alexei Burkser, the former head of an underground mine owned by the ALROSA diamond company.

In July 2017, a breakthrough of water occurred in the Mir underground mine. According to investigators, the leaders knew about the danger, but did not stop work and did not evacuate people. As a result, eight people died.

Almost immediately after arrest in jail committed suicide Alexey Burkser. Investigators are checking this fact.
