Investigators seek extension of detention for Kokorin and Mamayev
MOSCOW, November 30 (RAPSI) – Investigators have filed a motion demanding to extend detention of Zenit St. Petersburg’s football player Alexander Kokorin and Krasnodar’s Pavel Mamayev and two other defendants in the hooliganism case until February 8, 2019, RAPSI has learnt in the press service of Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court.
The hearing date has not been scheduled yet.
Previously, the football stars’ detention as well as detention of Kokorin’s younger brother Kirill and children’s football coach Alexander Protasovitsky was set until December 8.
The defendants allegedly initiated two fights in central Moscow in the early morning of October 11. According to the police, a driver of a Russian TV journalist received a nose fracture during the first incident on a street in central Moscow.
Two hours later, ministry of industry and trade official Denis Pak and CEO of the Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute Sergey Gaysin were assaulted by the footballers in a coffee bar and had to undergo medical treatment, the police stated. Pak reportedly sustained a concussion. The café’s video records showed one of the sportsmen beating up Pak with chair.
Cases on battery and hooliganism were opened following the incidents. Later, they were consolidated into a single case.
