Court lifts seizure of ex-Minister Ulyukaev’s property
The property of the former minister was arrested by two court decisions — of 2016 and 2017.
The Zamoskvoretsky Court of Moscow has lifted the arrest of ex-Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev, who had been sentenced to 8 years’ rigorous imprisonment for a large bribe. This decision is due to the fact he has paid a fine of 130 million rubles ($1.93 million).
“The petition of the lawyers to lift the arrest of Ulyukaev’s property is subject to satisfaction,” TASS quoted Judge Larisa Semyonova.
Ulyukaev’s property was arrested by two court decisions — of 2016 and 2017, RAPSI reports. The first decision stated that the seizure of the property would be lifted as soon as the former minister paid a fine of 130 million rubles. As much as 10 plots of land, as well as a house in the Smolensk region, were seized.
In April 2018, former Head of the Ministry of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev was sentenced to eight years’ rigorous imprisonment for taking a bribe of $2 million from Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin. Three months later, Ulyukaev began to serve his sentence in a correctional institution in the Tver region, Natsionalnaya Sluzhba Novostey recalled.
