Rybolovlev accused of corruption was released on recognizance not to leave
The billionaire’s lawyer Bersheda and two other defendants remained in custody.
The Russian Forbes’ list billionaire and owner of Monaco FC, Dmitry Rybolovlev, was charged with corruption and released on bail, Attorney General of Monaco Sylvie Petit-Leclaire reported to Monaco-Matin.
Along with Rybolovlev, the charges were brought against the billionaire’s lawyer Tatyana Bersheda, Christine Narmino and Antoine Narmino – the wife and son of the former head of judicial services, Philip Narmino. Several people are in custody in Nice and Monaco.
The criminal case was initiated in September 2017. According to the case materials, Rybolovlev tried to influence the course of the case against art dealer Yves Bouvier through Philip Narmino.
Preliminary hearings of the case pertaining to embezzlements committed during the construction of notorious Zenit Arena haven’t commenced yet – but the trial of Marat Oganesyan already ceased to be monotonous. The former Deputy Head of the St. Petersburg Municipal Administration has directly hinted at the involvement of his successor – current Vice Governor Albin – in the embezzlement of billions of rubles.
