Municipal deputy Ketevan Kharaidze won the elections in the Tverskoy district of Moscow while under house arrest. This was reported on her Facebook page.
Since Kharaidze herself cannot use the Internet, her “support group” published a message for her: “I am still a deputy of the Tverskoy district!
Thanks to everyone who supported me, who believed and still believes! I will not fail!".
The new convocation, in addition to Kharaidze, included 11 candidates from United Russia. “It will be enough for me alone, even with house arrest, to protect the district from 11 edros. It'll be hard. I know. Wish me strength and good luck! ”Kharaidze reports.
Kharaidze was arrested on June 19, 2021, a month after she announced her intention to run for the State Duma. A month later, she was transferred to house arrest.
The investigation believes that Kharaidze prevented the commissioning of an elite residential complex in the Tverskoy district and thereby deprived citizens of the right to housing. She was charged with fraud (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code). The Mundep herself claims that the house was built with errors, and she sought to have them corrected.
