The former member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation has avoided investigators for a long time, refusing to receive a copy of the indictment and ignoring the summonses to court.
The Volga City Court of the Volgograd region has decided to forcefully bring Nikolay Parshin, who had ignored the summonses, to court.
The first court session in the criminal case of swindling committed by an organized group on a particularly large scale (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code), the defendant in which is Parshin, was to be held on March 30, but the ex-parliamentarian did not show up.
April 13, the court postponed the next meeting to April 26 due to "the defendant's failure to appear."
Let us recall that according to the investigation, in 2010, then-Deputy of the Volgograd region Duma Nikolay Parshin entered into a criminal conspiracy with Head of Sredneakhtubinsky district Sergey Tikhonov, Deputy of the Volga City Duma Sergey Chekunkov, and Head of the Finance Department of the Volzhsky Administration Andrey Uvarov.
Having concluded a number of fictitious transactions for the sale and purchase of the former school building in the village of Rakhinka, Sredneakhtubinsky district, the defendants withdrew 25 million rubles from the regional budget by purchasing a significantly overpriced real estate from a private entrepreneur with public money.
Investigation of the case was completed in June 2016, however, it reached court as late as March 2017. The former deputy had regularly evaded appearances to investigators, and then refused to receive a copy of his indictment.
