Monaco officials accused in Russian oligarch Rybolovlev's case
They are accused of corruption and influence peddling.
A number of officials detained in Monaco in the case concerning a Russian businessman Dmitry Rybolovlev have been accused of corruption and influence peddling, reports a local newspaper Monaco-Matin.
In particular, the defendants in the case are the former government adviser for internal affairs Paul Masserone, the head of the police division Christopher Aje, and his assistant Patrick Fyuzari.
Just like the country’s former justice minister, they are to be checked by investigation bodies.
As CrimeRussia had earlier reported, the Prosecution Service in Monaco had opened a criminal case against a Russian tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev on November 7. Initially, the businessman was arrested during the preliminary investigation, however was released subsequently. The entrepreneur denies the allegations and doesn’t answer the investigators’ questions.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
