Corruption case against assistant to former Deputy PM Arkady Dvorkovich reaches court
MOSCOW, September 8 (RAPSI) — A corruption case against Anastasia Alekseyeva, assistant to former Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, has been forwarded to Moscow's Meshchansky District Court.
Yet another case is opened with respect to director of company "Medpolymerprom" Alexey Borisov, who stands charged with transferring a bribe. The case has not yet been scheduled for consideration.
Investigators allege that Alekseeva, when holding her office, received a bribe in the form of a New Year trip to Phuket and a May trip to the Dominican Republic between 2015 and 2016. The ex-official was detained in February 2020.
Earlier, the Moscow Ostankinsky District Court found the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Medpolymerprom Group of Companies, US citizen Gene (Eugene) Spektor, guilty of mediating this bribe and sentenced him to 4 years in prison with a fine of more than 14 million rubles ($192,000 at the current exchange rate). Spektor fully admitted his guilt, the case was heard under a special procedure; the decision came into legal force.
