As reports TASS with reference to the press service of the Zamoskvoretsky district court of Moscow, a preliminary hearing will be held on August 8 at 09:30 GMT.

In a press-service of the court said that the meeting will be held behind closed doors. In late July, it was reported that the Prosecutor General’s office approved the indictment and sent the case to court.

We will remind, against the speaker filed a criminal case under article “receiving a bribe by a person holding a state post of the Russian Federation, in especially large size”.

The official was detained in November last year. According to investigators, he extorted a bribe of two million dollars. Shortly after the arrest of the speaker was sent under house arrest.

In turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his resignation with the formulation “in connection with loss of trust”.
