From football field to jail
Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev – the second duet of weeks. Players of “Zenith” and “Krasnodar” on Monday beat three people, among whom were officials of the Ministry of industry and trade Denis Pak. Two days later the players was a criminal case, and later they were sent to jail.
“Phrase of the day – Mamayev colorise” – wrote on his page in Twitter famous TV presenter Vladimir Soloviev. “Kokorin and Mamaev who believe? Or they think they can get away with it?” Later, Soloviev proposed “indicative to punish these majors”.
By the way about “get away with”. In mass media there was information that a famous pranker Vova, and Lexus got through to the President “Zenith” Sergey Fursenko. According to him, the players just hoped that they will help clubs.
“No respect, money and fame should not be an indulgence”
And how would the situation, if this fight were very different people – a less well-known? That is the question that began to ask users of social networks.
Lawyer Shota Gorgadze sure “if Kokorin and Mamaev’s not going to jail at a fair verdict, there will arise a lot of questions to justice. No connections, money and fame should not be an indulgence for their crimes!”
