MOSCOW, May 15 (RAPSI) – The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office will file a lawsuit to forfeit assets worth nearly 4 billion rubles (about $62 million) from the former head of the Moscow Region’s Klin District Alexander Postrigan, who stands charged with abuse of power and forgery, to the state.
The claim will be lodged with the Klin City Court of the Moscow Region, according to the statement released by the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Prosecutors believe that ex-official used his job position for personal profit. He misappropriated 407 items of property including apartments, land plots, a recreational compound and others in the cadastral value of 935.7 million rubles, 4 cars totaling to 9.4 million rubles and monetary funds worth 3 billion rubles, the statement reads.
