RusHydro demands that Yevgeny Dod returns ten times as much as he stole
According to investigators, Dod inflicted the damage to the company amounting to 73 million rubles, unnecessarily inflating the size of his bonus. Now, the RusHydro demands that its former Head should pay back 706 million rubles.
In the Moscow's Basmanny Court, which is now dealing with a motion for attachment of property belonging to Yevgeny Dod’s spouse, the RusHydro asked a former Chairman of the Board of Directors to compensate damages tenfold. Dod had already repaid 73 million rubles of the damage he had been accused of by the Investigative Committee.
"The injured party claimed damages of 706 million rubles", the TASS quoted the investigator.
The investigation also announced that an accounting examination might result in a significant increase of the damage caused by Dod. In addition, the investigation is checking whether Dod committed any crimes before 2013.
Investigators believe that in 2013, Dod signed an order, instructing to award a bonus to himself, having unduly inflated the size of the bonus. Initially, he was charged under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling on an especially large scale), but later the charge was changed to part 4 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code (Misappropriation or Embezzlement committed on an especially large scale). The former RusHydro’s Head pleaded not guilty.
With regard to the arrest of property, belonging to the Dod family, on September 12 the Moscow City Court withdrew proceedings after the appeal by Dod’s defense for conservatory attachment, imposed by the Basmanny district court on his property. The arrest was imposed on 15 real estate units: 3 apartments in Moscow, a house and an economic unit in the Mytishchi district of Moscow region, 9 plots of land in the same area and a parking space. Later it turned out that according to the state register, none of the items officially belonged to Dod. At today's meeting the investigator said that he had cut the list of property units to be imposed attachment on.
The suicide of prominent politician and businessman Yuri Kotler has hit the headlines last week. Some people believe that he has laid hands on himself because of bankruptcy and career failures. Others suggest conspiracy theories, imply that it was not a suicide, and remind that Kotler was employed with a structure controlled by brothers Magomedov. Still others refer to his psychological problems originating from the childhood... But was his suicide note interpreted correctly?
