Frunzensky District Court of the city of Vladivostok has today started trying the case against CEO of OOO NPO Mostovik Oleg Shishov charged with a crime under part 5 of article 33, part 4 of article 160 (complicity in embezzling of entrusted property). The case was investigated by the major office of the Investigative Committee. Shishov concluded a cooperation deal and gave detailed evidence against himself and Director of Far Eastern Federal District Construction Department Andrei Poplavsky.
According to the investigation, Poplavsky with complicity of Shishov and Kosyachenko embezzled over 1 billion rubles allocated to build Maritime Aquarium in Vladivostok. The said sum was transferred to the bank account of OOO NPO Mostovik opened in the city of Omsk. Besides, Poplavsky got a commercial bribe from Kosyachenko and Shishov of over 145 million rubles for accepting the work carried out by the general contractor, pay for it and further financing of construction. Due to the fact that Shisov reported the commercial bribe of his own accord and actively helped to solve the crime, this charge has been dropped for non-rehabilitating reasons.
The court is also trying a case against Andrei Poplavsky whose term of detention has been extended to 6 more months. After Kosyachenko’s death the case against him, which was severed to form a separate law suit, has been closed for non-rehabilitating reasons.
