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.
The suicide of prominent politician and businessman Yuri Kotler has hit the headlines last week. Some people believe that he has laid hands on himself because of bankruptcy and career failures. Others suggest conspiracy theories, imply that it was not a suicide, and remind that Kotler was employed with a structure controlled by brothers Magomedov. Still others refer to his psychological problems originating from the childhood... But was his suicide note interpreted correctly?
