    Kurepin Dmitry Valentinovich | 22 Jan 2007

    He was born in 1966. Education: Higher legal (Academy of the Security Ministry of the Russian Federation). A lawyer of the Moscow regional bar association. Specialization: criminal law, civil law. A member of the Moscow regional bar association.

    Dmitry Kurepin insists on a full innocence of Alexey Pichugin. In the course of the pleadings on the 27-th of July 2006 Dmitry Kurepin pointed at a vagueness of the charges brought against his client: «The investigation, and then, the public prosecution do not take the trouble not only with the specifics, but even with an approximate detection of a duration and a general name of a place, state that Pichugin committed the crime in an unknown place and at an unstated time».

    Dmitry Kurepin stated that «the prosecution didnt interested in establishment of all factual situations of the crimes committing, and who exactly was the true customer of this crime. The prosecution is only interested in creation the image of the „Yukos“ oil company as a crime organization».

    According to Dmitry Kurepin, «in the course of the court session there was proved that Pichugin really had worked in the bank „Menatep“ and in the „Yukos“ oil company in the period of committing the crimes by Tsygelnik, Reshetnikov and Shapiro and that he had been acquainted with Gorin».

    «However, it is insufficient for returning Pichugin guilty in committing the crimes, charged to him by the prosecution», — the lawyer said.

    The evidentiary base of the public prosecution, «does not proof at all Pichugins guilt in the brought charges, but only confirms once again that the true purpose of the prosecution is not Pichugin», — Dmitry Kurepin thinks.
