The arrest was applied to the Spruds 9 June, but yesterday the court decided to keep him under arrest, and the decision to appeal is no longer valid, but the police may at any time make the decision to release the Spruds. Otherwise, two months later, the court again will consider the question of the measure of restraint.
According to the Criminal procedure law, a suspect in a felony crime can be kept under arrest more than 24 months, including pre-trial process is not more than 15 months. Spruds is now a suspect, and who knows when the police will submit the case for prosecution.
According to Rozenbergs, at trial, the defence suggested that the release of Sprūds bail or set the house arrest. According to the Declaration of officers, Spruds has accumulated cash 310 thousand euros. Part of the money seized during the search, but the arrest is not imposed on them.
The lawyer further characterizes the arrest as unfair and allows for the possibility to appeal to the European court of human rights. The argument of the police is that Spruds may hinder the investigation.
Yet he gave no evidence and believes that the case against him initiated without reason.
