Case of embezzlement in Rosgranitsa to be merged with Bezdelov’s case
Criminal case over embezzlement in the Federal Agency for the Development of the State Border Facilities of the Russian Federation (Rosgranitsa) will be consolidated with the case of its former Head Dmitry Bezdelov. Earlier it was said that the latter will be considered separately.
At the moment, the Meshchansky Court of the capital returned the case of Rosgranitsa on supplementary examination according to the petition of Bezdelov’s defense. The department’s Head was recently passed to Russia by Italy. Lawyer of one of the defendants, Sergey Gurov, told RIA Novosti about it.
At the same time Gurov noted that the court refused to return the case on supplementary examination to the Prosecutor's Office three times, while the case of Bezdelov himself, accused of embezzlement of more than 1 billion rubles, has not been brought to trial yet.
On October 14, the Meshchansky Regional Court of Moscow entered into an examination of the criminal case against heads of the Federal Agency for the Development of the State Border Facilities of the Russian Federation and its several partners.
They are accused of embezzlement of 490 million rubles during the construction and reconstruction of six automobile and railway infrastructures in various territorial subjects of the Russian Federation. Besides Bezdelov, accusations of the organization of a criminal society were presented to his former Deputy Oleg Senkevich, the Deputy Administrator of state-owned federal state institution Rosgranstroy Sergey Kozlenkov and the Director of Tsenny Sovet consulting group Evgeny Chaika. Bezdelov, accused of smuggling, was passed to Russia by Italian authorities in the spring of 2016 and brought to Moscow by the staff of the Federal Penitentiary Service and the Russian Bureau of the Interpol. The amount of damage caused by him is estimated in 1.17 billion rubles.
