Norilsk Nickels Prokhorov back in Moscow

Norilsk Nickel General Director Mikhail Prokhorov, who was released from custody in France by a Lyon court ruling on Friday, has returned to Moscow and will be at work on Monday,
Norilsk Nickel spokesman Sergei Chernitsyn told Interfax.

“As expected, this event has proven to be complete misunderstanding, which has been resolved fairly. No charges have been brought against Prokhorov,” he said.

As earlier reported, French police detained 26 people, including Prokhorov, at Courchevel ski resort on January 9 as part of an investigation into a suspected international prostitution ring. The court questioned Prokhorov on Friday, but no charges were brought
against him.

Lyon Prosecutor Xavier Richaud, however, was reported to say the investigation was underway and Prokhorov could yet be summoned to France again to provide more testimony.
