490-million-ruble fraud case against former Head of Rosgranitsa removed to court
Dmitry Bezdelov is also charged with the creation of a criminal community.
The criminal case against the former Head of the Federal Agency for the Development of the Russian Federation State Border (Rosgranitsa) Dmitry Bezdelov is removed to the Meshchansky District Court of Moscow, the Prosecutor General's Office reported. Bezdelov is charged with organizing a criminal community (part 3 of Art. 210 of the Criminal Code) and Swindling on 490 million rubles (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code).
According to the Prosecutor General's Office, in the summer of 2009 the Rosgranitsa Head conspired with a number of individuals to steal the money allocated for the construction of the railway crossing point Adler. Defendants in the case are the Bezdelov's Deputy Boris Khaytovych, the Head of the FSU Directorate for construction and operation of Rosgranitsa objects Oleg Senkevich, the Head of Rosgranitsa facilities and infrastructure Danil Vavilov, the Deputy Head of the FSUE Rosgranstroy Sergey Kozlenkov and the director of the consulting group Tsenny Sovet Evgeny Chaika. According to investigators, in four years (2009 and 2013) the criminal community has managed to steal more than 490 million rubles.
Recall Bezdelov fled to Italy after his dismissal from the post of the Rosgranitsa Head. In 2014 he was arrested in absentia by the Tverskoy Court of Moscow and declared into the international wanted list. Only in April 2016 Bezdelov was extradited by Italian authorities and given into hands of the Moscow FSIN staff and the Russian bureau of Interpol.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
