Person who stole $ 915,000 from co-investors extradited from Germany to Russia
The head of the Novgorod developer Ekspress was detained in Seftenberg.
Employees of the Russian Interpol Bureau and the Federal Penitentiary Service extradited Valery Markovkin, the head of the Ekspress LLC, who was detained in Seftenberg, Germany, and accused of stealing 60 million rubles ($ 915,000) from co-investors (part 4 of Article 159 CCRF), the official MIA representative Irina Volk told TASS.
According to the investigators, from 2015 to 2017, Markovkin built an apartment building in Veliky Novgorod at the expense of the co-investors, but did not complete the construction. When the criminal case was initiated against him, the businessman left Russia. In July 2018, at the request of the Russian authorities, the German police detained the wanted person.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
