Recently, the court delivered its verdict on one more criminal case, related to the theft of the Northern Fleet: one of the leaders of JSCo North Garant was found guilty of committing a crime under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling). The businessman was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison and a fine of more than 33 million rubles. In addition, the property of the entrepreneur was arrested.
