In Tula construction company director is being tried for exortion of money from debtor
A trial against the director of a construction firm, who unlawfully demanded 240 thousand rubles from equity holders begins in Tula.
The investigative bodies of the ICR in Tula Region completed the investigation of criminal case against 43-year-old Karina Lubenets, the director of StroyServisProekt LLC, as well as her 36-year acquaintance Anna Ushakova. The former is charged with Bribery in a Profit-making Organisation (part 3 of Art. 204 of the Russian Criminal Code), and the latter is accused of accessory in commercial bribery (part 5 of Art. 33, part 3 of Art. 204 of the Russian Criminal Code).
During the investigation, the law enforcement officers found that in August last year one of the shareholders submitted a request for issuance of a written consent for the state registration of the assignment contract of claim for housing, acquired under the equity participation agreement, to the StroyServisProekt LLC, engaged in the construction of residential buildings in the territory of the Varvarovka village, Leninsky District, Tula Region.
As the director of the company, Karina Lubenets unlawfully demanded the shareholder to pay 240 thousand rubles for the provision of the requested document. Her acquaintance Anna Ushakova acted as an accomplice.
The man was compelled to cave into the demands, as otherwise he would not be able to register the assignment contract of claim for his apartment in Rosreestr (the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography).
August 24 last year, he delivered the required amount to the construction company director's acquaintance near the multiservice center in Tula. The recipient of money was also unaware of Karina Lubenets's criminal intentions.
Investigators collected enough evidence in the case. After confirmation of the indictment, the case file was referred to the court for further consideration on the merits.
Some progress is expected with the completion of a never-ending deluxe construction project – Golden Mile residential complex. Little-known businessman Sergei Popov is about to take charge of it. Former elite co-investors rejoice – their dream to live on Ostozhenka street may finally come true. Only Oleg Deripaska is not happy with the news – Sergei Popov may attract public attention to some dark episodes in the billionaire’s biography that he would like to forget for good.
