Lenenergo was raided with search
According to law enforcement agencies, investigative activities related to the case of swindling and carried out in the service of security.
Employees of the ICR in St. Petersburg and the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Office of the Research Affairs in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region came this morning with a search warrant to the main office of PJSC Lenenergo in St. Petersburg.
As told to Fontanka in the Investigation Committee, investigators are examining areas, where the service of the enterprise security is located. Also, searches are taking place at the place of residence of one of the Lenenergo's guards. According to media reports, searches are connected with the case opened under Obstruction of Carrying out of Justice and of Preliminary Investigations (Art. 294 of the Criminal Code).
According to law enforcement agencies, investigative activities are related to the case of swindling. Recall that the the former General Director of JSC Lenenergo Andrey Sorochinskiy and the former Chief Financial Officer Denis Slepov are accused of Abuse of Authority, which caused grave consequences (part 2, Art. 201 of the Criminal Code).
According to the investigation, from April 2013 to January 2015, they placed 13.3 billion rubles of Lenenergo on the Taurian bank accounts, whose financial situation was extremely unstable (to the point that the bank had to be rescued from bankruptcy). As a result, the power company was not able to fulfill obligations to the contractors in time.
More than 10 billion rubles of the company were proved frozen until 2035.
Lenenergo is one of the largest distribution grid company in Russia, operating on the territory of St. Petersburg and Leningrad region.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention.

The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
