Switzerland will deliver individual accused in embezzlement of Russian Ministry of Defense money to Russia
Switzerland has agreed to extradite to Russia the former Head of the Board of Directors of "Amursky Sudostroitelny Zavod" Boris Shisholin accused of fraud on a large scale at the request of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation.
As representative of the Prosecutor General Alexander Kurennoy told the media, the former top manager of the Khabarovsk enterprise, who is charged with thirteen criminal offenses, will be accompanied back home by representatives of the Russian division of Interpol and the Federal Penitentiary Service.
According to the investigation, Shisholin was involved in embezzlement from public treasury in an organized criminal group in 2004, when he held the post of the first Deputy General Director of the plant.
The money received by Shisholin as Sberbank loans belonged to the Russian Defense Ministry.
Using the scheme with fictitious intermediary company, unnecessarily boosting the cost of materials for the customer, Shisholin stole about 75 million rubles of the budget money allocated for the completion of a warship.
Shisholin’s criminal gang was engaged in fraud with tax deductions in 2005 and 2006, and came to the attention of law enforcement agencies.
The international search was initiated by Interpol in all countries where it operates four years later, in 2010. Then the Prosecutor General's Office, having received the information on the whereabouts of the alleged fraudster, for the first time demanded that the law enforcement agencies in Switzerland to deliver the person of interest, but at that moment the police could not find him in the country.
In November 2015, the Russian extradition request Shisholin’s was accepted and the the cassational appeal submitted by him in six months was not satisfied by the Swiss court.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
