Prosecutor General's Office demanded to convert property of Colonel Zakharchenko to state use
We are talking about 27 real estate objects, four cars and more than 8 billion rubles ($139m).
The Prosecutor General's Office appealed to the Nikulinsky court of Moscow with a suit about converting the property of ex-Head of the Department T of the Main Directorate for Economic Security and Combating Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko to state use, TASS reported citing a court representative.
The lawsuit was registered in court on October 19. The date of its consideration has not yet been appointed.
The defense of Zakharchenko calls the Prosecutor General's demands illegal, as he allegedly does not own the listed property.
Earlier it was reported that the Moscow City Court arrested the real estate of Zakharchenko's civil wife Anastasia Pestrikova and his daughter Ulyana. According to the investigation, Zakharchenko bought it for money obtained by criminal means.
Dmitry Zakharchenko has been in custody since September 2016. He is charged with several episodes of receiving bribes. During the searches, there were found more than 8.5 billion rubles ($139m) in different currency and jewelry.
On September 21, kingpin Vladimir Vagin, aka Vagon, hanged himself. Two years earlier another thief in law Max Pioner also committed suicide. Vagon's lawyer does not believe in the version of suicide and intends to apply for a forensic medical examination.
