The Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasus Federal District of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation completed an investigation into manager of an alcohol enterprise in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic Mukhadin Inzhizhokov, charged with committing an offence under Paragraph B of Part 2 of Article 199 of the Criminal Code of Russia (evasion of taxes on organisations by showing in accounting documents data on incomes and expenses known to be false, committed on an especially large scale).
According to the investigators, from May 2014 to April 2016, the defendant had been submitting tax declarations to the tax authorities of the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, which reflected false information, underestimating the amount of alcohol produced and sold by the enterprise he had been managing, and the amount of taxes subject to payable. Thus, Maisky Distillery LLC had evaded paying over 3.1 billion roubles of taxes to the budget.
The investigation gathered enough evidence; therefore, the criminal case with the approved indictment was sent to the court to be tried on the merits.
Previously, the Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasus Federal District completed and referred to the court a range of probes into tax evasion on an especially large scale by other managers of alcohol enterprises of the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, including Ruslan Dashuev from Alco-Light LLC; Islam Berezgov from Rus-Alca LLC; Aslanbi Kalmykov from Chegemsky Vinpischeprom LLC; Anzor Kipov from Mineral Plus LLC; Ruslan Kankulov from Antares LLC; Alexander Dmitrienko from Hermes Nika LLC; Mukhamed Tatarov (Nakhushev) from Orion LLC; Lyudmila Alborova from Onyx LLC; Natbi Kanukov from Everest LLC; Maryat Daova from Antares LLC; and Anzor Afaunov from Atlantis LLC.
For the probes sent to the court the investigation provided cumulative damage compensation and the return of funds to the budget totalling over 9.8 billion roubles.
