Court postponed hearing of Mostovik Head Shishov's appeal on 340-mln-ruble damage
The Omsk Regional court has postponed to the first half of December the appeal of the former Head of Mostovik Nongovernmental Organization, Oleg Shishov, in a civil case associated with the recovery of 340.6 million rubles as damage caused by his company as a result of embezzlement during the construction of the Primorye Oceanarium in Vladivostok.
Let us recall that Oleg Shishov had previously sent a request for consideration of this case with the participation of Mostovik representatives, as well as the plaintiff – the Directorate for Construction in the Far Eastern Federal District under the Department of Presidential Affairs.
As a result, court rescheduled the hearing on the appeal to the beginning of December without appointing the exact date. The plaintiff's representative Konstantin Merkulov will not be able to participate in the court hearings on the case until December, as he will be taking part in proceedings as a defender for Andrey Poplavsky, accused of embezzlement during the construction of the oceanarium, throughout November.
Let us recall that this March the Frunzensky District Court of Vladivostok found the former head and owner of Mostovik Oleg Shishov guilty of complicity in the embezzlement of 1 billion rubles during the oceanarium construction. The court sentenced Shishov to 3 years in prison. In addition, by the court decision, he was obliged to pay a fine of 300 thousand rubles. Then the Pervomaysky District Court of Omsk decided to recover from Oleg Shishov 340.6 million rubles in favor of the Department of Presidential Affairs on August 12. However, the former Head of Mostovik NGO did not agree with the court decision, claiming that all the damage caused by his company had already been compensated, and intended to appeal the judgment.

However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
