Russian billionaire Gleb Fetisov, who stands charged with embezzling more than 6 billion rubles (over $121 million) from a bank he owned, filed a complaint with the European Court for Human Rights (ECHR) over his detention conditions, RIA Novosti reported on Friday, citing Fetisov’s lawyer, Karinna Moskalenko.
Moskalenko claims that the conditions at the detention facility combined with Fetisov’s health problems are inhuman and violate the European Convention on Human Rights. She said her client’s chronic disease is serious and that it is not being treated.
Fetisov’s defense lawyer requested that the Strasbourg court consider that Fetisov has been held under inappropriate conditions for over a year because the court has delayed his trial. Moskalenko is requesting the ECHR give priority to Fetisov’s complaint. Currently the banker is being held until August 22.
