Two Vologda lawyers suspected of criminal conspiracy with defendant bailiffs

The criminal case concerns the illegal sale of a bankrupt organization’s buses to the scrap metal base.

Vologda’s City Court took lawyer Roman Britvin, who was detained yesterday with his colleague Alexey Fedotov in the case of the theft of six buses of Transoil LLC, into custody until July 27. At the beginning of the year, Fedotov’s lawyer status was suspended. The lawyers were suspected of criminal conspiracy with the bailiffs accused in the bus case, the regional ICR’s Directorate reports.

On May 28, the officers of the local FSB Directorate detained five people as part of an investigation into a case of embezzlement of property worth 24.8 million rubles ($ 384,000) seized by bailiffs. The loss was discovered in 2018 by the bankruptcy manager of Transoil. The police found the buses in disassembled at the base for receiving scrap metal. According to the investigation, the money for the scrap (3.2 million rubles - $ 50,000) was received by the head of the Bailiffs Service for the Vologda District and the search-bailiff of the same department, as well as their two accomplices.

Criminal proceedings were instituted against the suspects, but the bailiffs, with the help of their lawyers, allegedly destroyed three of the six buses, constituting material evidence. As a result, five people came under investigation.
