Pattaya, the 30th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 10:00am, Mr. Pletnev arrived to face the court driving silver Mercedes accompanied by a female friend. Looking much more composed than in his last appearance, Mr. Pletnev signed the relevant paperwork in line with court proceedings, which have become a mere formality while the investigations into his case are still ongoing.

Less media, notably foreign, were present at today’s affair, no doubt due to the proceedings being an observance of bail, rather than a hearing. Dominated by local media, Mr. Pletnev discussed matters with his attorney before making an exit without statement.

Thai law stipulates that pre-trial investigation may last a maximum of 84-days. This means that Mr. Pletnev may be asked to front for court a total of 7 times (further 5 times) before the public prosecutor is forced to make a judgement on whether to proceed with the case.

In an attempt to gain some valuable insight into Mr. Pletnev’s case, Pattaya Daily News (PDN) approached his lawyer, Mr. Phaybunom Tangthanavatom about were the case was headed from its current juncture. Remaining professional, Mr. Tangthanavatom was reluctant to divulge any specifics regarding his client or the case simply stating that the matter will be resolved following due process.

During a brief, unrecorded meeting with Mr. Pletnev over lunch, PDN’s Russian editor revealed the conductors philosophical and religious nature. Mr. Pletnev, in his trademark composed style, revealed his shock regarding the negative press that has surrounded him in Russia, despite only being an accused. He somewhat compared his struggle and persecution with prior cases of Russian (Soviet) cultural figures, Boris Pasternak and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

He believes the culmination of his life’s history and current proceedings to be a “test from God” and that only the future will dismay the detractors. It is unknown what the future holds for Mr. Pletnev, as proceedings continue and police investigators revealed that a testimony from the mother of the alleged victim is the founding for his case.
