"I do not admit the very fact of a crime", - Mulukhov said.
Another two accused, Sergey Abutidze and Alexey Zubarev, also refused to admit their guilt. "I am a victim, I was beaten, my money was taken away and I was put to prison", - Abutidze stated, RIA Novosti reported.
The injured Dzhonny Managadze was not present in the court room, having an opportunity to watch the events via the voice communication. As was explained by the judge in response to the culprits' discontent, Managadze will give testimony via the voice communication so long as "he is under the protection of the state".
In the course of the meeting, the prosecutor announced the indictment and proposed the order of investigating the evidence, according to which, the injured person is the first to appear before the court; he is followed by the witnesses and afterwards, the case materials are to be examined. Finally, the accused are to be interrogated. Abutidze and Mulukhov objected to such an order, having asked the court to give them an opportunity to state their position first.
The court adjourned for half an hour. After the recess it will decide upon the order of the evidence investigation and will get down to the investigation process.
The media refer to Mulukhov as to one of "the most influential criminal authorities" within the post-Soviet space and the head of the so-called "Kutaisi family of thieves in law". He and two other players, Sergey Abutidze and Alexey Zubarev, are accused of abducting a native of Georgia Dzhonny Manadze and extorting 500 thousand dollars for his release.
