The last two have already left the SIZO, having concluded pre-trial agreements with the investigation. In August, in the same case, the head of BaltStroy, Dmitry Sergeyev, who had just received a suspended sentence on the "restorers' case" was taken into custody. Sergeev, Torchinsky and Kuner are classmates, the source of RBC, who was familiar with the course of the investigation, reported.
