The Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasian Federal District of the Investigative Committee of Russia has finished a probe into Yury Zaritsky. He is accused of committing an offence under Part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of Russia (swindling committed by a group of persons under a preliminary conspiracy, by a person using their official powers, on a large scale).
According to the investigation, no later than in August 2007, Yury Zaritsky, holding a position of Director General of FLC-Komplekt LLC, had preliminarily conspired with Director General of Financial Leasing Company PJSC Nail Malyutin, Aslan Gagiev, and other persons in order to steal money belonging to the Financial Leasing Company PJSC, with state participation in the authorized capital. To implement this criminal intent, the accomplices had made a forged agent contract between the two legal entities. Upon this contract, in February 2008, 290 million rubles had been transferred to the bank account of FLC-Komplekt. The money had been stolen by Zaritsky, Malyutin, and other persons and subsequently spent on, among all, high-priced real estate objects.
It was established that Zaritsky had committed the indicated crime together with Aslan Gagiev, who led the criminal community without entering it.
Zaritsky tried to hide from the investigation and was placed on the federal wanted list on June 16, 2017. As a result of search activities, he was located. On April 13, 2019, Zaritsky was arrested in Moscow.
The investigation gathered enough evidence related to Zaritsky; therefore, the criminal case with the approved indictment was sent to the Simonovsky District Court of Moscow to be tried on the merits.
The Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasian Federal District of the Investigative Committee of Russia continues the preliminary investigation into other accomplices of the crime.
Gagiev is currently studying case files of the probe launched against him under Article 217 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Russia. The investigation into the other accomplices of the offence is ongoing.
