Defendant in Rosneft case to seek political asylum in Slovenia
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has been struggling to have the chief of capital construction of the Tuapse Refinery extradited, but without success.
The Slovenian court has released former Tuapse Refinery Chief of Capital Construction Anatoly Kaverov under house arrest. He is to live in his mansion in the suburbs of Ljubljana. At the same time, he will not be wearing an electronic bracelet; the local policemen will personally follow the execution of the court ruling. According to Kommersant, Kaverov’s lawyers have already applied for political asylum in Slovenia on his behalf. All this reduces the likelihood that the Prosecutor General's Office of Russia will be able to achieve his extradition.
Let us recall that Anatoly Kaverov was detained in April 2016 by Croatian border guards on an Interpol warrant. He had been declared internationally wanted by the Investigative Committee of Russia as part of the investigation into the criminal case of 137-million-ruble ($2.3 million) embezzlement from the Tuapse Refinery owned by Rosneft. According to the investigators, former Vice-President of Rosneft for Capital Construction Andrey Votinov, also internationally wanted, was the organizer of the crime group. The accomplices falsified documents on the work implemented to dismantle the temporary berthing facility at the refinery and transferred the money to the accounts of the company under their control. Tuapse Refinery Chief for Capital Construction Kaverov was charged with Swindling on an especially large scale (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code).
In December 2016, the Croatian court did not extradite him to his homeland, but deported to Slovenia, where the former top manager of the refinery had a residence permit.
A St. Petersburg company Renessans-Restavratsiya JSC, involved in a criminal case under Art. 169 (Swindling) of the Russian Criminal Code, has been selected to receive the contract. The case was initiated in September 2017 in connection with the failure to perform 4-million-ruble ($70 thousand) works to restore a XVI-century fortress in the Leningrad region.
