A number of additional charges have been put forward against the founder and ex-CEO of the Mostovik non-governmental organization Oleg Shishov. He is accused of tax evasion in the amount of 480 million rubles, and embezzlement of budget funds in the amount of 526 million rubles. The case is examined by the Kuibyshev District Court of Omsk
The former top manager fully admitted his guilt and asked to consider the case in a fast-track procedure, without examining the evidence, Kommersant reported.
During the debate, the Prosecutor requested to add another 2.5 years on new charges, in addition to the 3-year prison sentence for embezzling 1.2 billion rubles allocated for the construction of the aquarium in Vladivostok.
On September 16, Oleg Shishov is to make his final statement.
As a reminder, in June, the former Head of Mostovik NGO Oleg Shishov was transferred from Vladivostok to the Omsk penal colony No.8.
Investigators claim that in 2009-2011, Shishov added false information into the financial documents of the company and its tax returns. The documents indicated that the construction and assembly works in a number of regions of Russia had been completed by the counterparties. However, in fact, they did not conduct any work for Mostovik, the entire volume of it was carried out by Mostovik itself or the third parties. As a result, according to investigators, Shishov evaded more than 478 million rubles of VAT.
As for the case of fraud, the investigators believe that Shishov stole the advance payment of 526 million rubles allocated for the construction of the Omsk ring road (the Fedorovka – Aleksandrovka part).
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
