Barsukov-Kumarin not in St. Petersburg court
The 'night governor' faces another term.
The Kuybyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg had to postpone the preliminary meeting on the case of St. Petersburg's 'night governor' Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin, who is called the leader of the Tambovskaya criminal group. His lawyer Konstantin Kuzminykh said that the meeting was postponed till October 16. The reason was the ignorance of one of the defendants.
Another lawyer of Barsukov-Kumarin said that his trustee is in the Moscow remand prison, so he would participate in the court session via video conference.
Recall that the figurants of this case are ten people. They are accused of raider seizures of real estate belonging to Supermarket Pulkovsky LLC, Petersburg Oil Terminal CJSC, Confectionary Factory named after N.K. Krupskaya CJSC and other companies.
According to the information of the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the members of the group were engaged in forgery of the constituent documents of the companies and registered shares in the authorized capital for fictitious participants. In addition, they illegally introduced changes related to founders and general directors to the Uniform State Register of Legal Entities electronic database. To their illegal activities, they involved persons who acted as fictitious founders and directors of enterprises.
Vladimir Barsukov has already been tried earlier. He was sentenced to long terms for illegal takeover, fraud and attempted murder.
Larisa Markus, ex-President of failed Foreign Economic Industrial Bank (Vneshprombank) made a deal with the investigation and named her brother Georgy Bedzhamov the mastermind behind the embezzlements and siphoning off funds from the bank. Was there an arrangement between the relatives–bankers on who shall demonstratively go to jail and who shall take the blame for all the crimes and abscond abroad with stolen billions of rubles? Vneshprombank co-owner Georgy Bedzhamov is currently beyond the reach of law enforcement structures and creditors. Perhaps, it is now time for everybody to forget about the fugitive banker? Especially taking that, according to The CrimeRussia sources, some persons are interested in ruining the case against Bedzhamov.
