In St. Petersburg, probe into former Director General of Solvex Tour LLC tour operator finished

The Saint Petersburg Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia has finished the investigation into Tamara Khaletskaya, former Director General of the Solvex Tour LLC tour operator. She is accused of committing an offense under Part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of Russia (swindling).

According to the investigation, from October 2013 through September 2014, Khaletskaya, driven by the desire for personal enrichment, had concluded contracts for tourist services, being aware of the inability of Solvex Tour LLC to fulfill the obligations under the contracts and having no intent to fulfill these obligations. As a result of the illegal activities of the accused, over 157 million rubles were stolen from 2,771 victims.

The probe amounted to more than 336 volumes.

The investigators collected enough evidence for the criminal case to be referred for the conclusion of an indictment.
