MOSCOW, August 22 (RAPSI) - Chairman of Tretyakov & Partners law firm Igor Tretyakov involved in the 330-million-ruble ($5 million) Roscosmos embezzlement case has filed an application with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), his attorney Stanislav Shostak has told RAPSI.

According to the complaint, the lawyer’s rights to fair trial, effective remedy and right to liberty have been violated; primarily, Russian authorities have breached the principle presumption of innocence.

Tretyakov is currently in detention. In July, the Moscow City Court extended his detention term until October 19.

According to Russian investigators, the lawyer and two other defendants, ex-CEO of the S.A. Lavochkin Scientific Union Sergey Lemeshevsky and chief of the Union’s legal department Yekaterina Averyanova have stolen assets of Roscosmos by signing fraudulent contracts for provision of legal services with the law firm. All the works were allegedly performed by the corporation’s own specialists. The overall sum of payments to the firm reached 330 million rubles.

Tretyakov pleads not guilty, while Averyanova has admitted guilt and signed a deal with investigators in exchange for release from detention under house arrest.
