Even in spite of the fact that eks - the official seriously ill (he has had a stroke) and doctors have allowed to spend investigatory actions no more a half an hour in day. It and hardly moves to this day. And shortly before the beginning of process doctors ascertained an aggravation of a heart disease and variety of other illnesses at Sevrjugina.
yesterday it has entered into a hall of judicial sessions on crutches. In the sluggish person with an unhealthy pale face and silent speech difficultly there was no time to learn the impressive and important owner of area. Yes to it and the metamorphosis was terribly obidna: as restrained eks - the governor, and on its cheeks tears continually rolled down. Numerous public observed of this scene from a hall: journalists, pensioners, active workers of patriotic parties and associations (basically the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and RKRP). Among them as - that not numerous relatives of defendants have got lost.

Having been refused, defenders eks - the governor petitioned for carrying out of the independent is judicial - medical examination: “ Judicial examination - process long. Our client can not sustain loading “. Also have there and then asked court to release Sevrjugina under a subscription about nevyezde. Against the first petition representatives of state charge did not object, and here the second has not caused in them approval. The court has agreed with them.
then all was as usual: lawyers asserted that accused in what are not guilty, and consequence proofs are collected with law infringement. However, they will prove the same throughout all process. However defenders, by their recognition, already now are not assured of positive issue of a suit for them: “ It too politized. One year ago FSB management has already reported to the president about successful fight against corruption in the Tula area. And the president already has had time to take out the verdict: To court he named Sevrjugina the bribe taker “.
