MOSCOW, October 10- RAPSI, Irina Tumilovich. The Interior Ministry's investigator, charged with receiving a $3 million bribe, appealed her arrest, a Moscow district court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) on Monday.

The court received a cassation appeal filed by Nelli Dmitriyeva in which she claims the court illegally ordered a pre-trial detention for her, the court's spokeswoman said.
She also added that the court has yet to set a hearing date.

Media sources earlier reported that Dmitriyeva was involved in the notorious case of Sergei Magnitsky, a Hermitage Capital Management lawyer, who was accused of corporate tax evasion and died in a pre-trial detention center in November 2009. His death evoked a major public outcry. However, the Interior Ministry denied media allegations.
