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.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
