Former Head of Rosrybolovstvo Aleksandr Tugushev placed under house arrest
On Friday, the Nagatinsky Court of Moscow sent the former deputy head of Rosrybolovstvo (Federal Agency for Fishery) under house arrest.
This is reported by RIA Novosti on information from the court. Meanwhile, the investigation insists on putting Tugushev in custody.
The defense of the former deputy head of Rosrybolovstvo also do not agree with the decision on house arrest. The defendant’s lawyer has announced she intends to appeal the court's decision.
According to the ICR, Tugushev has made a preliminary agreement with a certain Dzhamaldaev and other unidentified persons, who were threatening Orlov from January to April 2016 and demanded that he gave them the holding company’s shares estimated at 1.5 billion dollars.
Let us recall that Aleksandr Tugushev had previously held a high position in the Russian State Committee for Fishery. As head of the Rosrybolovstvo Liquidation Commission, Tugushev and his accomplices extorted a bribe of 3 million 700 thousand dollars from the management of a fishing company based in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. In 2007, Tugushev was found guilty of swindling on an especially large scale and bribe extortion, and was sentenced to 6 years of imprisonment.
The Prosecutor's Office prescribed a check in Tyumen's correction colony (IK)-2 in connection with the suicide of a 20-year-old prisoner, who, according to human rights activists, was driven crazy by enforcers.
