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 According to investigation, bank assets have been withdrawn on the instruction of the financial structure’s owner, the former Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia, and the current president of Evrasiyskiy JSC Stanislav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.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
