Defendants of case over Putin’s residency plead guilty
It is remarkable that earlier one of the defendants, director of Federal State Unitary Enterprise Ateks Andrey Kaminov, insisted on his innocence.
Defendants of a criminal case over embezzlement of 225 million rubles ($3.9m) allocated for construction of the state objects in a residence of President of Russia Vladimir Putin admitted their guilt. It is reported by TASS with reference to investigator Sergey Novikov.
To recall, six people are connected to the case: head of Federal State Unitary Enterprise Ateks Andrey Kaminov, his former first deputy Stanislav Kyuner, and also former director of the company Stroykomplekt Dmitry Torchinsky, Sergey Litvinov, Sergey Perevalov and Aleksander Rodionov.
At the same time, Kyuner’s lawyer Andrey Grivtsov declared to journalists that his client, as well as another person involved in the case - Litvinov, does not admit his guilt.
“Today in court Torchinsky and Perevalov reported that they concluded the pre-judicial agreement with the investigation”, the lawyer emphasized.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, Andrey Kaminov who is considered the main defendant in the case, during the investigation he also denied the fault.
In March, the Basmanny Court of Moscow arrested Kaminov for two months. Besides, the court authorized arrest of other persons involved in this case - Stanislav Kyuner, Dmitry Torchinsky and Sergey Litvinov, Aleksander Rodionov and Sergey Perevalov. All of them are accused of Swindling (part 4 Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
In particular, the Organization of Criminal Community (part 1 Art. 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), is also incriminated to Kyuner and Torchinsky - Participation in Criminal Community (part 2 Art. 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) is also imputed to Klimov.
It was reported on March 21 that heads of Ateks were detained. They were involved in the case of plunder of money during construction of so-called object No. 53, namely the House of receptions in the presidential residence Novo-Ogaryovo. As the Kommersant newspaper reported, in this case also other episodes, namely about construction and reconstruction of the presidential residence Russia in the state Zavidovo complex can appear. On this object works for the sum of 138,6 million rub have not been performed, the Federal Guard Service reported. Stroykomplekt was engaged in construction works in Putin's residence Bocharov Ruchei in Sochi.
Rosfinmonitoring (Federal Financial Monitoring Service) analyzed the data of the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers and discovered thousands of offshore companies through which the Russians laundered billions of rubles. Materials on deputies and governors were handed over to law enforcers.
A spokesperson of the Prosecutor's office said that the ECHR had not studied all the materials of the criminal case, so they were offered not to overturn the verdict, but to send the case for a new review in court.
