It completed investigation into theft of Ministry of Defense’s land plots in Moscow suburbs
The investigation authorities announced a termination of investigation into the theft of 100 land plots of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
The investigation of the criminal case against Vladimir Lisiza, who is accused of embezzling 100 land plots from the Russian Ministry of Defense, is completed. The investigation has gathered all the necessary evidence in order to confirm the indictment and send it to the court. Stolen areas are currently under arrest.
Investigators were able to establish that the accused together with his three accomplices contrived a fraudulent scheme to seize land plots of the Ministry of Defence, total area of which is 10 hectares. Accomplices stole 99 different land plots. The total damage to the Ministry was about 204 million rubles.
For 4 years, from 2009 to 2013, the fraudsters have participated in the hearings of the Krasnogorsk City Court for recognition of property rights to the above-mentioned land plots.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
