Court extends detention of Roskosmos top manager accused of swindling
Police also arrested a former Nauchno Tekhnichesky Tsentr R & D (science and technology center) Company CEO, his alleged accessory.
The Basmanny District, Moscow Court extended period of detention of Roskosmos CEO for Quality Control and Reliability Vladimir Evdokimov and former Nauchno Tekhnichesky Tsentr R & D (science and technology center) Company CEO Aleksandr Zolin. Both are accused of 200 million ruble swindling concerned with MiG Russian Aircraft Corporation’s real estate.
This means the Court satisfied the prosecution’s claim and denied that of the defense team who asked it to place the suspects under house arrest. However, the attorneys have already announced they are going to appeal the decision.
There are 3 other suspects, as earlier reported. They are former CEO of Vertoletnaya Servisnaya Kompaniya (Helicopter Maintenance Company) Akim Nosov, former First Deputy CEO of the said company Aleksey Andreev, and Aleksey Ozerov.
The investigators claim the suspects acted as a gang and used several for-profit companies they controlled to illicitly acquire rights for MiG’s public property worth 200 million rubles at the very least.
