Rusnano CEO to be interrogated upon case of its ex-head
The hearing will be held on November 24.
Rusnano CEO Anatoly Chubais will be questioned in court as a witness on the part of the prosecution in the case of Leonid Melamed, the former head of Rusnano, who is accused of embezzling 226 million rubles ($3.8m). The court session will be held on November 24 in the Cheremushkinsky court of Moscow.
Previously, Rusnano stated that there was no damage and legality of the actions of the accused. At the end of May the Cheremushkinsky court of Moscow began to consider the criminal case against Melamed and Ponurov on merits.
Recall, Melamed is accused of the organization of large embezzlement. According to the investigation, former head of Rusnano hired Andrey Malyshev and Svyatoslav Ponurov to work for the corporation, after which he initiated the issue of attracting an advisory firm to provide Rusnano Corporation with services that were not needed. In 2008, Ponurov, being the financial director of the company, illegally won the tender for the selection of an adviser to Alemar. The co-owner of this company was Melamed. After that, a draft agreement on the provision of services was designed, which, in turn, was signed by deputy head of Rusnano Malyshev.
Due to all illegal actions, the corporation Rusnano unjustifiably spent more than 220 million rubles, as Alemar did not fulfill obligations.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
