Пожар в "Токио Стар" в Одессе: суд отказался продлить меру пресечения владельцу отеля

Vadim Cherny believes that the hotel could set fire to a Russian terrorist.

The Kiev district court of Odessa refused to extend the measure to the owner of the hotel “Old Tokyo” Vadim Black, which in August last year, killing 9 people. As the correspondent of the UNIAN reports, Black said in social networks.

“The court rejected the Prosecutor in electing me to measure. First jail, then-house arrest, then night house arrest. Now the court refused the Prosecutor’s office even in a polite and insignificant “personal commitment,” said Black.

He argues that, according to the examination of the hotel there were no violations of fire safety that could cause a fire. In addition, according to him, there is evidence that the hotel was set on fire, in particular, did a Russian terrorist.

“There are clear signs of arson, set by the examination. There are Russian terrorists who are highly intelligent prosecutors released from Ukraine, and now most afraid to go because of this trial. And the court did not want to cover the Prosecutor’s office for a military business,” said Black.

He believes that the alleged perpetrator has already left for Russia. Supposedly there is evidence (video) that, when the fire started, the man went to his hotel room, which was located opposite the Laundry. In the past, according to investigators, the fire started.

As suggested by Black, after committing arson, an attacker could jump out the window of the Laundry, then returned to his room, took a backpack with things and disappeared.
