The Investigative Committee of Russia has denied the information that had spread earlier in the media about the return of the arrested property to Yevgeniya Vasilyeva. As Official Representative of the agency Svetlana Petrenko announced on the ICR website, this information was untrue.
Petrenko recalled that after the examination at the request of the former official's defense, the attachment was removed only from Yevgeniya Vasilyeva's paintings, as they did not represent any artistic value.
The investigation denied the application for removing the attachment from Vasilyeva's bank accounts, jewelry, and real estate.
Let us recall it was previously reported that the defendant in the case of Oboronservis had got six real estate objects and 325 million rubles ($5,776,875) back. Earlier the attachment had been removed from works of painters of 19-20 centuries in her possession.
As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, in 2012, Yevgeniya Vasilyeva became a defendant in a corruption scandal of the Ministry of Defense, during which Head of the department Anatoly Serdyukov was dismissed.
Let us recall that in May 2015, the court found Vasilyeva guilty of swindling and sentenced her to 5 years in prison. However, already on August 25, she was released on parole.
UK investigators believe they have identified the suspected perpetrators behind the Novichok nerve agent attack on the Skripals through CCTV and have cross-checked the footage with records of people who entered the country around that time.
