Pavel Borodin Has Been Summoned To Geneva For Interrogation

Pavel Borodin has been summoned to Geneva for interrogation, reports the RIA Novosti correspondent. As Geneva prosecutor general Bernard Bertossa reported on Thursday, a required summons has already been sent to Moscow. He did not specify the day of the interrogation but said it would take place in May. According to Bernard Bertossa, Borodin's lawyers have been notified about the interrogation. The State Secretary of the Union State of Russia and Belarus was released from prison pending trial in Switzerland, where he had arrived from the New York prison, on April 12 on bail of about three million dollars. The next day he returned to Moscow. Earlier Pavel Borodin stated that he would "fly to Switzerland as soon as the Geneva prosecutors will summon" him. "If my health allows, I shall go to Switzerland without any conditions because I must answer the questions which will arise," stated Pavel Borodin and added that he had "nothing to fear." -O- (kos/kaf) 03/05/01 14:26
