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 According to investigation, bank assets have been withdrawn on the instruction of the financial structure’s owner, the former Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia, and the current president of Evrasiyskiy JSC Stanislav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.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
