Head of Evrasiyskiy JSC remained under arrest
Lawyers of the Head of Evrasiyskiy JSC Stanislav Svetlitsky and the Deputy Head Dmitry Puzanov accused of fraud have appealed against the decision on the extension of their preventive measure (detention until November 20) in the Rostov Regional Court, says Kommersant.
According to Kommersant, the lawyers have appealed against the decision on the extension of the preventive measure (detention until November 20) for the Head of Evrasiyskiy JSC Stanislav Svetlitsky and the Deputy Head of Evrasiyskiy JSC Dmitry Puzanov, who had been accused of fraud.
The businessmen are accused of a large-scale fraud committed by a group of persons. According to investigators, they committed a fraud for the total amount of 1.1 billion rubles in the period from April to October 2014 in Rostov.
The news agency reports that both detainees have been actively involved in the court session, asking the court to change their measure of restraint to house arrest.
Svetlitsky’s family has offered to stand bail in the amount of 30 million rubles for him. Svetlitsky himself believes he has been a victim of a raider attack, and “somebody is trying to destruct his normally operating company.” Whereas Dmitry Puzanov deems himself a victim and believes the charge against him has been fabricated.
It should be reminded that the case is related to Narodny Kredit bank’s funds. According to investigation, bank assets have been withdrawn on the instruction of the financial structure’s owner, the former Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia, and the current president of Evrasiyskiy JSC Stanislav Svetlitsky. As law enforcement agencies believe, Svetlitsky could have invested the funds stolen from Narodny Kredit bank’s depositors into business.
In less than three years, Vadim Potomsky, Governor of the Orel Region, became involved into so many scandals that rumors about his upcoming dismissal circulate persistently. Furthermore, the region under his rule has made a mark during the live teleconference with the President: a complaint made by Orel resident Klavdia Stavtseva became one of the most high-profile episodes of the broadcast. What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
