$1 million seized from co-owners of Summa Group
The seizure of the funds has been reported earlier, yet no specific sum was named.
The Tverskoy Court of Moscow has seized more than $1 million belonging to the co-owners of Summa, Ziyavudin and Magomedov Magomedovs, the Moscow news agency reports citing court spokeswoman Anastasia Dzyurkova. The seizure of the funds has been reported earlier, yet no specific sum was named.
In addition, the source of the agency said that during a search in the house of Ziyavudin Magomed's wife, 5 million rubles ($80.300) and 17 thousand dollars were seized.
Ziyavudin Magomedov was arrested in Moscow on March 31 in the case of embezzlement of 2.5 billion rubles ($40.1m). Together with the businessman, his brother, co-owner of the Summa group Magomed Magomedov, as well as Artur Maxidov, director general of the Intex group, were placed into custody. They are charged with Creating a Criminal Association (part 1 of Article 210 of the Criminal Code), Swindling (Article 159 of the Criminal Code) and Embezzlement (part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code). The suspects do not recognize their guilt.
The court placed Magomedovs in custody until May 30. The lawyers filed a complaint against the decision to arrest him. On Monday April 16 the court dismissed this complaint.
The miraculous landing of an Airbus A321 belonging to Ural Airlines on a cornfield raised a number of questions in relation to waste landfills in the metropolitan area. The airbus struck a flock of seagulls because an illegal dump site was established not far from Zhukovsky International Airport. The CrimeRussia performed its own inquest to uncover ties between the emergency landing of the A321 and Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow Region. It turned out that dump sites, seagulls, officials of Ramenskoe, and detained thief-in-law Shishkan are links of the same chain that cannot be broken even by the law enforcement authorities. After the aerial incident, a criminal case was instituted under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of the rules for traffic safety and operation of the railway, air, sea and inland water transportation systems). But the question is: why no criminal proceedings were launched in relation to the corruption and establishment of illegal landfills?
