Vasilyeva's case: two other defendants may get out on parole
Earlier, the former deputy head of Oboronstroy was allowed to serve his sentence in a penal settlement.
Former deputy director of JSC Oboronstroy Yuri Grehnev, who is convicted of embezzlement of budget funds, can be released on parole, Rosbalt reported. He and his boss Larisa Egorina might be released in the spring of 2017.
According to a source of the edition, Yuri Grehnev had to be transferred in the pre-trial detention center № 5 in St. Petersburg after being sentenced to four years in prison. After a year in prison, Grehnev filed a petition to change the type of correctional institution for the penal settlement. As a result, judges decided to allow the appeal. It means a substantial commutation of his sentence's conditions: the management of the penal settlement may allow a prisoner living with the family, not only in the colony, but also outside.
Former head of Oboronstroy and the Main Directorate of Troops Arrangement Larisa Egorina was sentenced to four years and three months. The sentence set off the time that she spent in detention and under house arrest.
Previously, by a decision of the Sydogodsky court, the Vladimir region, main defendant of the Oboronservis's case Evgenia Vasilyeva and her friend Irina Egorova were released on parole. Soon, others convicted of billion-dollar-theft upon the Vasilyeva's case - Natalia and Nikolai Dynkovys, Dinara Bilyalova, Maxim Zakutaylo – were released. Figurante Katerina Smetanova, the wife of Maxim Zakutaylo, cooperated with the investigation and received a suspended sentence.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
