MOSCOW, January 10 - RAPSI. A commercial court has registered an appeal filed by Energomash to resume its bankruptcy, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com).
Energomash is a leading Russian power engineering equipment manufacturer.
The appeal hearing date has yet to be scheduled.
The debtor wants the court to resume its bankruptcy case, which was suspended on May 26.
In November, the court upheld the extension of Energomash owner's arrest until February 1. Alexander Stepanov was charged with 12.7 billion rubles ($394 million) in fraud, the court told RAPSI.
Stepanov also owes Sberbank 17.5 billion rubles ($543.5 million). The debt of Energomash and Stepanov to Kazakhstan's BTA-Bank is $365 million and their debt to its subsidiary, ATM-Bank, is 500 million rubles ($15.5 million). ATM-Bank's license was revoked last summer.
