MOSCOW, September 26 (RAPSI) – Investigators have released the spokesperson of Russia’s communications agency Roskomnadzor Vadim Ampelonsky charged with embezzlement from house arrest under a written pledge not to leave the country, Yelena Vyatkina, the lawyer of another defendant Alexander Veselchakov, has told RAPSI.

Two other defendants in the case, the watchdog’s ex-official Boris Yedidin and advisor of the General radio frequency center’s CEO Veselchakov, have been also released under travel restrictions. Investigation into the case has been completed.

A criminal case has been launched against the defendants over alleged conclusion of fictious labor contracts between 2012 and 2017.
