Director of fly-by-night company embezzled 10 mln rubles under guise of memorial reconstruction in Crimea
Law enforcement agencies arrested a rogue who had embezzled 10 million rubles intended for memorial complex reconstruction in Crimea.
According to the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Irina Volk, a criminal case under part 4 of Art. 159 (Swindling) has been initiated against the detainee; she has been charged under this article.
Irina Volk added that the woman had earlier been arrested on suspicion of embezzling 10 million rubles; this amount was intended for reconstruction work in the territory of a memorial complex in Simferopol.
According to the police, the detainee along with unidentified accomplices had entered into an agreement on behalf of the organization with one of the stone processing companies for the supply of granite for reconstruction work of the Simferopol memorial dedicated to the victims of Nazi concentration camps. As part of agreement execution, the company transferred money to the fraudster company's account; the rogues, in turn, had no intention of fulfilling their obligations and appropriated the money.
The investigation is currently underway. The detainee is charged with the alleged crime.
