First businessman from Titov’s list convicted
In August, the Ministry of Internal Affairs terminated the criminal prosecution against the entrepreneur, but later resumed it.
The founder and director of Trading House Grif LLC, Andrey Kakovkin, who returned to Russia as the first from the list of business ombudsman Boris Titov, was sentenced to three years in a penal colony for embezzlement of 10 million rubles ($ 156,000) from MKT LLC. This was reported by the press service of the Kirovsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don.
The court found the entrepreneur guilty of swindling on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 159 CCRF). The crime was committed in 2015.
Kakovkin returned to the Russian Federation in February 2018 and was immediately detained, but then released under an obligation to appear. In August 2019, the MIA’s Investigative Department for Rostov-on-Don terminated the criminal prosecution against him for insufficient evidence. In September, at the request of the deputy prosecutor of the city, the investigation was resumed.
