“The Bar's attorneys managed to release the client from under house arrest right in the courtroom”
A resonant trial on the case of the Vice Governor of the Vladimir Region Elena Mazanko, held on 30 August in the Basmanny district Court, ended in favour of defence team. The subject matter of the court hearing was the prosecuting attorney’s petition to extend the duration of our client’s house arrest.
Having examined the provided materials, the court saw no reason to uphold the petition finding the arguments of the defense team, Samvel Karakhanyan and Julia Zhironkina, more convincing. As a result, the petition of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation was dismissed and Elena Mazanko was released from under house arrest.
