Singer offers to pull strings at FAS and get company’s money, investigation underway
According to investigators, the singer wanted to get almost $2 million rubles from entrepreneurs, promising them to resolve their long-standing dispute with the FAS.
The Moscow Prosecutor's Office approved the indictment against singer Arei Balevsky, filing the document with the Zamoskvoretsky district court of Moscow.
According to investigators, the singer wanted to get almost $ 2 million from entrepreneurs, promising them to resolve their long-standing dispute in arbitration with the FAS.
According to Kommersant’s sources in law enforcement agencies, the case of Balevsky, who is currently in the pre-trial detention center, was solved months ago.
Recently, he signed a document conforming that he had read the materials of the preliminary investigation, after which the materials were sent to the prosecutor's office for approval, from where they were filed with the Zamoskvoretsky District Court. The showman was detained after the police received a statement from a representative of an energy company of the North Caucasus, which had been in litigation for years.
The company accuses the FAS of omission in the execution of certain court decisions in favor of the company, which led to a loss of 220 million rubles by the business. The singer was the one who offered to put an end to the conflict and finally help the entrepreneurs get their money, boasting experience in similar affairs.
The showman first demanded a little more than $1 million from his clients, but then increased the fee to $1.8 million, asking them to give him the sum in two installments and hinting that the lion's share of the reward would go to his high-ranking FAS friends. The negotiations and the meeting were closely watched by operatives and eventually, Balevsky was detained.
