Yevgeny Roizman* was arrested for 14 days

The Leninsky District Court of Yekaterinburg arrested the former mayor of the city Yevgeny Roizman* for 14 days under an administrative protocol on the manifestation of extremist symbols in social networks (part 1 of article 20.3 of the Code administrative offences). About this from the courtroom informed CASS.

Yevgeny Roizman* was arrested on March 16. According to lawyer Vladislav Imadzhapov, the reason for this was an extremist message on the VKontakte social network, which was allegedly posted on Roizman’s page on the social network.

Roizman‘s wife, Yulia Kruteeva, noted that the rebroadcasting of material with extremist symbols was made in the Yevgeny Roizman group, to which the former mayor has nothing to do.
