BANGKOK, December 28 (RIA Novosti) A Thai prosecutor’s office has dropped a child molestation charge against acclaimed Russian pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev, Pletnev’s lawyer said on Tuesday.
“No charges will be brought against Pletnev anymore. All the legal procedures are finished towards him. I have received a Thai prosecutor’s office’s decree,” the lawyer said, citing the prosecutor’s office of Thai Chon Buri Province as saying.
“I am absolutely convinced of my innocence that is why I did not hesitate for a minute about the result of the investigation. Now, when everything is over, I can only say that money was behind the attempts to trump up a case against me,” Pletnev said.
