Ayrapetyan's relatives disagree with posthumous diversion
Relatives of the businessman, who died in a colony intend to “play for keeps”.
Relatives of director of the Sobesednik publishing house Levon Ayrapetyan will not agree for the posthumous termination of the criminal case against the businessman on not rehabilitating bases. RIA Novosti reports about it with reference to lawyer David Hechan.
According to him, Ayrapetyan’s relatives intend to “go all the way”, and this means that the property of the businessman will remain under arrest so far. In particular, Ayrapetyan’s apartment on Prechistenka and $300-400 thousand on bank accounts.
To recall, in 2016 Ayrapetyan was sentenced to four years for embezzlement of $700 thousand from the mother of ex-Senator from Bashkiria Igor Izmestiev. Besides, the publisher appeared in the case of the assignment of stocks of the energy industry company of Bashkiria and legalization of means which the second defendant is the former head of Bashneft Ural Rakhimov. The investigation assessed damages in this case at 130 billion rubles ($2 billion).
Earlier it was reported that Ayrapetyan died in a colony in a consequence of an oncological disease. Besides, according to doctors, he had “heart troubles and hypertension.”
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
