Case against businessman Mikhalchenko to be considered in Kingiseppsky City Court
The oligarch is accused of smuggling of elite alcohol.
The Supreme Court of Russia satisfied the petition of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation for determination on the jurisdiction of the criminal case of St. Petersburg businessman Dmitry Mikhalchenko and directed his case to the Kingiseppsky City Court of the Leningrad region.
Earlier Mikhalchenko and other defendants of the case - Boris Korevsky, CEO of the Southeast company Ilya Pichko and co-owner of the Kontreyl Logistik Northwest company Anatoly Kindzersky were accused under part 3 of Article 200.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Smuggling of Alcoholic Products by an organized group).
To recall, as the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, the defendants were detained in March, 2016. According to charge, CEO of the Forum company billionaire Dmitry Mikhalchenko organized smuggling of expensive wines and other elite drinks. Buying production in the European Union, he transported it to Russia through port in Hamburg under the guise of sealant.
The court believes that Anzhela Maria Tsapok could have made the money to buy the house and the expensive car by legal means, since she owned a firm. The court still refused to lift the attachment from her 6 million dollars.
