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.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
Several years ago, owner of two dozen companies and media sources Elada Nagornaya was called the richest wife of an official. Now her husband Oleg Sorokin is in a pre-trial detention center, and she has successfully left for Europe with other family members.
