Court consolidated cases on embezzlement of 500 million rubles in Rosgranitsa
In total, investigating officers brought charges to nine defendants, among whom there were former Head of Rosgranitsa Dmitry Bezdelov and his deputy Boris Haytovich.
The Meshchansky Court of Moscow consolidated cases against former Head of Rosgranitsa Dmitry Bezdelov and eight other persons involved, accused of swindle of nearly 500 million rubles in one production. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to Bezdelov’s lawyer Boris Kozhemyakin.
Earlier, the court already returned these two cases in Prosecutor's Office for their consolidation in one production, however the Moscow City Court cancelled this decision and sent both cases back to the Meshchansky Court for consideration.
To recall, according to the version of investigating officers, former Head of Rosgranitsa Bezdelov created a criminal community in 2009 with the assistance of Head of Directorate on a Construction and Operation of Objects of Rosgranitsa Federal State Institution Oleg Senkevich and Head of department of arrangement of objects of state border and administration of check points of Rosgranitsa Danila Vavilov. In four years defendants stole and legalized more than 490 million budget rubles allocated to Rosgranitsa for various needs.
Besides, Bezdelov’s deputy Boris Haytovich and a number of leading employees of Rosgranstroy and the CEOs of the controlled commercial organizations participated in collusion. Two defendants have already been sentenced to long imprisonment. Senkevich disappeared from court and was in federal search, materials concerning him are considered in absentia. Bezdelov himself absconded for long time and only in April, 2016 was extradited to the Russian Federation from Italy.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
