Furgal is charged with organizing a criminal community
Plot Criminal case against the governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal
Former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal was charged with organizing a criminal community and seven episodes of large-scale fraud, RIA Novosti reports.
His lawyer Sergei Dovgy explained that it was on credit fraud.
The case will soon begin to be considered with a jury in the Lyubertsy Court of the Moscow Region.
Furgal was detained last summer in Khabarovsk and convoyed to Moscow, where the Basmanny Court arrested him.
The investigation believes that Furgal and Nikolai Mistryukov in 2004 created an organized group to commit murders of competitors. The case against Mistryukov in connection with the conclusion of a pre-trial cooperation agreement with him was separated into a separate proceeding. Furgal denies his guilt.
