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.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
