Moscow authorities want land of Rosselkhoznadzor head seized
Sergei Dankvert’s land plot is located in the area where Borovskoye Highway is being reconstructed. However, the high-ranking official refused to give away the land when demanded to do so, not agreeing with the price the mayor's office has given to his real estate.
The Moscow authorities want to seize the land plot from Sergei Dankvert, the Head of Russia's veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor.
The Moscow City Property Department filed a lawsuit against Dankvert in the Shcherbinsky District Court to seize the land plot of 1671 square meters located in Marushkinskoye settlement near Ankudinovo village. The reason is that the plot belonging to the high-ranking official is located in the area where Borovskoye Highway is being reconstructed. The city is willing to reimburse the money offering the Rosselkhoznadzor Head 1.456.000 rubles ($25.775). Note that this is the amount Evaluation and Consulting Center had evaluated the land at when requested to do so by the Moscow authorities. The center claimed that their assessment was based on the market value of the site and lost profit caused by the seizure. However, Dankvert was not happy with the amount. The federal official demanded a forensic examination to establish the market value of the site, believing that his property is worth more than 1.5 million rubles.

However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
