Main defendants of Renova case transferred to Moscow
The Managing Director of the Renova company Evgeny Olkhovik and the CEO of PJSC T Plus Boris Vainzikher were delivered from Syktyvkar to Moscow.
Top managers are accused of 800 million rubles bribery to members of organized crime group under the guidance of the former Head of Komi Vyacheslav Gaizer.
As reported by the Investigative Committee of Russia, investigators are now working with detained under Renova case top managers.
Vainzikher and Olkhovik were arrested on September 5, 2016 after the FSB carried out searches in offices of the company. The court elected them a measure of restraint in the form of two months arrest, the appeal against the arrest of the accused was denied.
The third person involved in Renova case is the ex-CEO of the company VimpelCom Mikhail Slobodin, who was absentia arrested and put on the international wanted list.
Yesterday it became known that Gaizer's predecessor as the Head of the Komi Republic Vladimir Torlopov also became involved in the case on charges of OCG creation. He came to Moscow and during interrogation admitted his guilt.
Larisa Markus, ex-President of failed Foreign Economic Industrial Bank (Vneshprombank) made a deal with the investigation and named her brother Georgy Bedzhamov the mastermind behind the embezzlements and siphoning off funds from the bank. Was there an arrangement between the relatives–bankers on who shall demonstratively go to jail and who shall take the blame for all the crimes and abscond abroad with stolen billions of rubles? Vneshprombank co-owner Georgy Bedzhamov is currently beyond the reach of law enforcement structures and creditors. Perhaps, it is now time for everybody to forget about the fugitive banker? Especially taking that, according to The CrimeRussia sources, some persons are interested in ruining the case against Bedzhamov.
