Former Russian Deputy Education Minister Marina Rakova has been remanded in custody on embezzlement charges.

On August 4, the Tver district court in Moscow rejected a request by Rakova's lawyers, who had asked the court to transfer their client from detention to house arrest, saying that she had pleaded guilty and expressed a willingness to provide financial compensation for the damage caused.

The court ruled that Rakova must stay in pretrial detention until at least October 9.

Rakova was arrested last fall along with the rector of Moscow's School of Social and Economic Sciences, Sergei Zuyev. The two were charged with embezzling 50 million rubles ($950,000) from the ministry.

A day earlier, the same court transferred Zuyev from a detention center to house arrest.
