Bankruptcy proceedings against fugitive ex-MP Mitrofanov extended once more
MOSCOW, June 6 (RAPSI) – A bankruptcy procedure against former lawmaker of the State Duma Alexey Mitrofanov, who is currently hiding in Croatia because of fraud charges against him, has been extended for another six months, according to the Moscow Commercial Court’s records.
Previously, the proceedings were extended for six months in December. The court asked Viktor Yeltsov, a financial manager of the debtor, to provide a complete report on actions with Mitrofanov’s property, including copies of sale documents and repayment of credits.
Mitrofanov was declared bankrupt in December 2017 on the request of BMW Bank, a subsidiary of the German BMW auto concern. Earlier, the bailiff service authorities reported that he had to pay various debts worth over 18 million rubles (over $275,000 at the current exchange rate) under several Moscow courts’ decisions. In May 2018, the Moscow District Commercial Court confirmed his 384.5-million-ruble (nearly $6 million) debt to the Technology Development Bank.
The State Duma revoked Mitrofanov’s parliamentary immunity due to fraud charges in June 2014.
