Former chief legal officer of St. Petersburg government suspected of embezzling nearly $ 226,000
The court placed the ex-chairman of the Smolny’s legal committee under house arrest.
The Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg placed Yulia Osipova, the former chairman of the city government’s legal committee, under house arrest until December 22, 2018. The investigation suspected her of embezzling 14.6 million rubles ($ 220,000). Osipova pleaded innocent, Moika 78 reported.
According to the investigators, the committee which Osipova until recently had headed, concluded a contract for the provision of comprehensive legal services with the company called Akkanto, but no services were actually provided.
According to Fontanka, Osipova was detained on the morning of November 9 on suspicion of fraud on a large scale (part 4 of Article 159 CCRF). In early October 2018, the security forces searched the legal committee’s offices; a week and a half later, Osipova and her deputy Irina Zolotovskaya were fired.
Osipova has headed the Smolny’s Legal Committee from June 2017; before that she was the deputy head of the Committee.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
