Kokorin and Mamayev granted parole
The colony administration is fine with releasing on parole football players Pavel Mamayev and Alexander Kokorin and his younger brother Kirill, who were convicted for fights in central Moscow, and supports their parole petitions, lawyer Yuri Padalko said.
"Today my motions for parole will be studied, and we hope for the best. There are grounds to satisfy them. All the three have good references, and the colony supports the motions for parole," TASS cited the lawyer as saying.
The motion study will start soon at a field court session that will be carried out in the colony where the Kokorin brothers and Mamayev are serving their sentences. The lawyer said that his defendants’ petitions will be studied by turn. The court session will be closed.
"If there is no other decision [on the release on parole], they will leave [the colony] in 10 days," the lawyer specified, adding that director of a department at the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Pak sent an application which says that they "leave everything for the court’s discretion."
On October 8, 2018, FC Krasnodar midfielder Pavel Mamayev and FC Zenit striker Alexander Kokorin were reported to be the culprits behind two assaults in downtown Moscow.
The Moscow police detained the footballers in October on charges of battery and hooliganism. Moscow’s Presnensky Court sentenced Mamayev and Protasovitsky to one year and five months in a general penal colony, and Alexander Kokorin and Kirill Kokorin to one year and six months in a colony. They were taken to the colony in early July.
