LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky spoke about the aid to the arrested ex-head of the Khabarovsk Krai Sergey Furgal.
“What we help Furgala. Now we want to give him better lawyers and appeal against the decision of Moscow city court on the measure of restraint. Let come back to Khabarovsk, but when will a court session in Moscow — it will come. It already would be sharply reduced passions. And even better to hold a jury trial in Khabarovsk, as asking themselves Khabarovsk,” says Zhirinovsky.
The Deputy of the state Duma lamented the fact that Furgala not allowed even deputies.
“nor I, Nor any other. This is a violation. Deputies of the state Duma prevented to meet with party members, with the former Deputy of the state Duma”, — he said.
“We hope that in the end, Furgal will be acquitted, not enough evidence to charge him. But if there is a conviction, we turn to the President to get a pardon,” — concluded the leader of the liberal democratic party.
However, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Bastrykin said that the investigation has no doubt about the involvement of former Governor of the Khabarovsk territory Sergey Furgala to the incriminated crimes.
In the Khabarovsk region regularly rallies in support of arrested Furgala.
