Degtyarev called for public trial of Forgalom

The trial of the former Governor of Khabarovsk territory Sergey Furgala should be open so people could see the evidence of his guilt or innocence, said acting head of the region Mikhail Degtyarev at the meeting with residents of the Vanino district. Video of the meeting provided to journalists in a press-service.

Weekend Degtyarev is on a working visit in Vanino and Sovgavanskiy district. When he moved from Vanino Sovetskaya Gavan, towards his car passed a convoy of loud beeping machines. The acting Governor turned the car and went to the people who asked him questions about the support of the arrested Furgala open trial, and why he will be tried in Moscow, and not in Khabarovsk.

He added that he considers the reasonable demands of the festival on the occasion of territoriality.

"But that decision will be taken upstairs to judicial guidance, but not Degtyarev will affect it", — noted acting Governor.

Furgala was detained on 9 July. He is suspected of involvement in organized crime groups and organization of contract killings in 2000-ies. Immediately after arrest he was sent to Moscow Basmanny court arrested him for two months. Furgal guilt does not recognize.
