Prosecutor General’s office files lawsuit against defendants in case of embezzlement at Roskomnadzor
This sum will compensate damage done to the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Main Radio Frequency Center, recognized as the injured party in the case.
The Prosecutor General's Office has filed a lawsuit for 58 million rubles as compensation of the damage in the case of embezzlement in Roskomnadzor against former press secretary Vadim Ampelonsky. Moskva agency reports citing words of lawyer Artur Bolshakov.
This sum will compensate damage done to the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Main Radio Frequency Center, recognized as the injured party in the case. However, the agency did not file any complains.
"This is very strange, as the injured party is an independent legal entity and it does not need prosecutorial custody. The injured party did not file any lawsuit, but the Prosecutor General's Office is acting in their interests to collect the damage," the lawyer commented.
Recall that the investigation of the criminal case is completed; 14 people were charged in this case. Among them are Ampelonsky, head of Roskomnadzor’s legal department Boris Edinin, adviser to the general director of the Main Radio Frequency Center Alexander Veselchakov and head of the enterprise Anastasia Zvyagintseva.
According to the investigation, the defendants were engaged in fictitious employment and seized money of the agency. Ampelonsky and Edinin were put under house arrest, Zvyagintseva is currently under a written undertaking not to leave.
Oksana Chernyshenko was put on the wanted list; she was arrested in absentia.
