Deputy director of Peterhof Palace sent under house arrest for embezzlement
The Petrodvorets Court of St. Petersburg has elected a preventive measure for Deputy Director of the Peterhof State Museum-Reserve Viktor Sorokin, suspected of embezzling budget money allocated for the development of the museum.
The official has been placed under house arrest.
The court issued a ruling on the arrest of 59-year-old Viktor Sorokin yesterday, on late April 7, satisfying the FSB's request. From now on, any contact with the 'outside world' will be prohibited for the public officer, including via the Internet. In addition, by court order, he may only communicate with his spouse, close relatives, and health workers. It should also be noted that the court had taken into account Sorokin's health, and cut some slack in letting him have daily two-hour walks.
It is noteworthy that Viktor Sorokin had monitored the implementation of government contracts and engaged in providing technical support to the Peterhof State Museum-Reserve.
October last year, the FSB initiated a criminal case into large-scale embezzlement on his part. Law enforcement agencies have reason to believe that this crime is connected with the 'Case of restorers,' the main defendant of which is former Deputy of the Ministry of Culture Grigory Pirumov.
