MEXICO, January 24 - RAPSI. Mexican police has allowed Russian citizens Oleg Denisov and Vladimir Galkin detained on suspicion of stealing a yacht from the United States to leave Mexico for a 30-day term, Denisov told RIA Novosti by telephone.

Last week Denisov and Galkin were released on a 520,000 peso ($40,000) bail.

"We came to the police on Monday morning and filed an application for a temporary exit from Mexico, which was satisfied," Denisov said on Monday.

They planned to go home on Tuesday. "But we will return to prove our innocence. We consulted a lawyer and he said the case is not worth a tuppence," said Denisov.

Denisov and Galkin were detained on board the yacht after it reached Cancun port on January 14. Russians are charged with stealing a yacht in Miami, United States, although they maintain they leased it. The lease agreement with an intermediary, who could be a fraud, was concluded in a simple written form. Eventually, the yacht was placed on an international wanted list and seized.

The judge prosecuting the case has found that their actions amount to a crime and brought a charge against them.
