Court seizes $62m property of ex-head of Klin district
The Prosecutor-General's Office asked to turn Aleksander Postrigan’s property into government revenues.
Court arrested property of an ex-head of Moscow region’s Klin district Aleksander Postrigan. The property is worth of 4 billion rubles, reports TASS with reference to the media service of the Prosecutor-General's Office.
Klin city court is reported to have accepted a lawsuit of the Prosecutor-General's Office related to turning of Postrigan’s property into government revenues. Meanwhile, lawsuit related to arrest as a preventive measure was filed. Court granted this petition.
Official representative of the Prosecutor-General's Office Aleksander Kurennoy earlier reported about their intent to seize Postrigan’s property that had been purchased through illegal sources. Kurennoy says it is about 407 real property items (apartments, summerhouses, a recreational compound and others), 4 foreign cars and money equivalent of property worth of 3 billion rubles ($46.2 million) that had already been seized.
Aleksander Postrigan was detained in June, 2018 on suspicion of exceeding official authority while commissioning of a residential house. The investigation theory is that he signed a certificate of operational acceptance and violated city-planning legislation by doing so. Later, defects that could cause the building’s destruction were found in the building.
Postrigan was a head of Moscow region’s Klin district from 1996 till 2014.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
