Assets of Renova subsidiary’s top manager seized as part of bribery case
MOSCOW, February 2 (RAPSI, Oleg Sivozhelezov) – Moscow’s Basmanny District Court has ordered the seizure of assets worth $2.2 million belonging to CEO of Renova Group's subsidiary T Plus, Boris Vaynzikher involved in a bribery case, the court’s spokesperson Yunona Tsareva told RAPSI on Thursday.
Investigative authorities in Russia’s Republic of Komi have initiated a criminal case against some former and acting managers of Kompleksnye Energeticheskiye Sistemy (KES) company, of which T Plus is the legal successor, on suspicion of large-scale bribery. At that time the offices of the company’s parent holding Renova were also raided.
Three men holding CEO posts in the KES at different time, Mikhail Slobodin, Yevgeny Olkhovik, and Boris Vaynzikher are involved in the case. Vaynzikher and Olkhovik are currently in detention. Slobodin has been arrested in absentia.
Investigators believe that in 2007 through 2014 the suspects bribed officials currently involved in the criminal case against the Republic’s ex-head Vyacheslav Gaizer with money and other assets. In total, they transferred over 800 million rubles ($13.3 million) to bribetakers.
