On May 13, 2005 the Supreme Court of Russian Federation disposed complaint of attorneys of employee of security service of UKOS Aleksey Pichugin upon prolonging of custody period.
Yesterday the Supreme Court of Russian Federation ceased production on appeal of advocacy of employee of security service of UKOS Aleksey Pichugin. It should be reminded that on 30 of March, Moscow municipal court sentenced Pichugin to 20 years of deprivation of liberty, having found him guilty in the organization of murder and attempted murder. Yesterday court examined complaint of attorneys of Aleksey Pichugin upon the decision of prolonging of custody period – on 10 of March not long before the passing a sentence, court prolonged period of pretrial incarceration till 11 of June. Yesterday the Supreme Court ceased production upon the complaint having listened to both sides. Though, declaration was not presented yet. However, as attorney of Aleksey Pichugin George Karaner explained to correspondent Ú, obviously such decision of the court was connected with the issue that verdict upon the matter has been already passed and now examination of complain upon the arrest periods (the Supreme Court did not have time to make it till passing of verdict) has no matter. Mister Karagen also reported that date of complaint examination to verdict given by advocacy of Pichugin to the Supreme Court, passed by Moscow municipal court is not appointed yet.
