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.
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?
