Former spouse of MK’s Editor-in-Chief detained on suspicion of swindling in Moscow
Earlier, Evgenia Efimova filed a civil claim for the family property between her and Pavel Gusev to be divided.
According to RBС with reference to Efimova’s lawyer Timur Marshani, Evgenia Efimova, the former spouse of the Editor-in-Chief and owner of Moskovsky Komsomolets (MK) newspaper Pavel Gusev is detained in Moscow.
In the lawyer’s words, the woman is convicted of Swindling committed on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Marshani stated that Efimova was taken to the temporary detention facility.
According to Mash Telegram channel, at present, Efimova came to the police division for questioning voluntarily. Her former spouse is accusing her of theft of antiquities worth of 2 million dollars.
RBC quoted a businessman Mikhail Khubutia as saying that Efimova had asked him for help and complained about pressure from her ex-husband. The businessman believes that she is being forced to drop the claim for the family property that is being examined by the Presnensky District Court of Moscow.
The value of the property of the ex-spouses is estimated to be 27 billion rubles ($410.6 million). Evgenia Efimova is seeking for interest in the authorized capital of Redaktsiya Gazety Moskovsky Komsomolets ZAO and Izdatelsky Dom MK ZAO.
Sweeping purge of Novosibirsk governmental structures – clampdown on corruption ties between local elite clans and their ‘patrons’ in law enforcement agencies?
Two governmental structures – judicial and watchdog agencies – have been ‘decapitated’ in the Novosibirsk region. The sweeping purge of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office was not as severe as the media had reported – but the key figures have already been removed from office. In fact, the large-scale unscheduled inspection carried out by a commission dispatched by the Prosecutor General’s Office has just begun. Who else is going to resign ‘voluntarily’? Who has initiated the sweeping purge of the watchdog authority? And what high-profile corruption cases are forthcoming?
