Moscow court again seizes $16 mln assets as part of case of ex-minister Abyzov

17:38 13/01/2020

MOSCOW, January 13 (RAPSI) – The Basmanny District Court of Moscow has granted injunctive attachment of assets worth over 1 billion rubles ($16 million) belonging to ex-Minister for Open Government affairs Mikhail Abyzov as part of the 4 billion-ruble ($64 million) embezzlement case against him, RAPSI has learnt from the court’s press service.

Thus, monetary funds, securities and property will remain under attachment.

The matter has been reconsidered. Previously, the Moscow City Court overturned a ruling of the lower court of September 10 vacating the seizure.

The former government minister was charged with organizing a criminal group and embezzling 4 billion rubles ($62 million) with co-conspirators from two energy companies supplying electricity to Siberia.

Investigators claim that the alleged crimes were committed between April 2011 and November 2014 while the alleged embezzled sum were taken out of the country.

A Moscow court ruled in March that Abyzov should be held in a pre-trial detention facility.
