Moscow court extends detention of businessman accused of $31 mln embezzlement

16:30 10/10/2019

MOSCOW, October 10 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Tverskoy District court on Thursday extended detention of owner of Optima Development construction company Albert Khudoyan charged with 2-billion-ruble embezzlement (over $31 million) until November 14, RAPSI learnt from the court’s press service.

In July, the Moscow City Court rescinded house arrest of Khudoyan and placed him in detention upon a motion filed by prosecutors. The court held that the accused can flee abroad despite the fact he gave his foreign passport to investigators.

Khudoyan stands charged with embezzling several land plots from one company. Investigators have estimated damage allegedly caused by the defendant at 2 billion rubles. The businessman pleads not guilty and says the case against him is hostile takeover of his development company.

Optima Development has been engaged in the construction of commercial and residential projects since 2007, the company’s website reads.
