The Moscow City Court has extended until May 24 the arrest of alleged accomplice of the investigator Nelly Dmitriyeva, who is involved in Magnitsky case and charged with accepting a $3 million bribe. The court dismissed Maxim Kagansky's request to release him. The court also upheld the seizure of six cars owned by Kagansky, a former Interior Ministry officer. The police seized a BMW, Chevrolet, Maybach and three Mercedes in October 2011. Media reported earlier that Dmitriyeva was involved in the case of Hermitage Capital fund consultant Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a pre-trial detention center. Dmitriyeva was charged with accepting a large-scale bribe from a businessman in exchange for her promise to stop investigating his case. Magnitsky was charged with involvement in large-scale corporate tax evasion.
