Defendant in Moscow judge threat case to undergo mental examination
MOSCOW, December 12 (RAPSI, Nikita Shiryayev) – Moscow’s Basmanny District Court ordered resident of Voronezh Mikhail Kvasov, who stands charged with murder threats to a judge, to be recommitted to a mental hospital, RAPSI reports from the courtroom.
A relevant motion was filed by an investigator, who said that in 2007 Kvasov had a medical checkup in the Voronezh psychoneurologic dispensary and was diagnosed with the mixed anxiety-depressive disorder.
Thus, upon the court order, the defendant will undergo mental examination in Moscow despite his objections.
According to investigators, Kvasov has threatened to murder the judge of Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court Stanislav Minin.
In November, the Basmanny District Court on similar allegations detained Yevgeny Yerzunov, who was earlier arrested at Vnukovo airport when trying to depart for Italy. One more defendant Sergey Polovets was released on travel restrictions.
