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.

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.
