In Moscow, a search was carried out in the apartment of the leader of the Libertarian Party Mikhail Svetov. Law enforcement agencies said that this had nothing to do with the case of violation of sanitary standards. The search was carried out as part of a criminal investigation of lecherous acts. Svetov passes along it as a witness.
The fact that security forces arrived at his apartment, Svetov announced on his Twitter. Lawyer Dmitry Zakhvatov rushed to the oppositionist. So far, he cannot answer journalists’ questions about what the search is connected with.
A criminal case for lecherous actions was opened in 2019. The reason was the statement of the Izvestia journalist, who suggested that Svetov posted information about lecherous actions against a girl under 16 years of age. The politician was interrogated in the case back in 2019 and left in the status of a witness.
