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.
During another session on Alexey Ulyukaev's case on September 26, the prosecution submitted to the court a protocol of examination of the bribe received by the ex-official in the amount of 2 million dollars and a videotape of his visit to the office of Rosneft.
Dmitry Ishaev, a businessman detained for severe beating of his father-in-law Viktor Ishaev (former Presidential Envoy and Governor of the Khabarovsk Region) and father of the reckless driver Igor Ishaev, was sentenced to a house arrest for a period of 2 months yesterday.
Cannibals-spouses from Krasnodar were arrested; during the searches at their home investigators found saline fragments of the human body, several packages of frozen meat, numerous photos with dismembered bodies and personal belongings of the victims.
The trial of St. Petersburg oligarch Dmitry Mikhalchenko is about to start in October. Two weeks prior to its beginning, it became known that the family of Evgeny Murov, ex-Head of the Federal Protection Service of the Russian Federation, has acquired the lion’s share of Port Bronka assets. The CrimeRussia was figuring out whether this was a strategic move of the businessman in order to protect his ‘pet project’, or the price of silence of the high-ranked enforcement functionary?
The candidates for the long-term resignation include heads of the Ivanovo, Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Murmansk, Novosibirsk, and Omsk regions, the Nenets Autonomous District (NAO), the Krasnoyarsk and Altai regions, as well as several subjects in the North Caucasus.
Dmitry Ishaev, the father of the notorious reckless driver Igor Ishaev, is an entrepreneur with a rather controversial reputation, and a former advisor to Rosneft, whose business is mainly related to the processing and trade of oil and oil products. Dmitry Ishaev has repeatedly become involved in criminal incidents.
