The Dagestan Republican Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia has launched a probe into former Director-General of Rychal-Su Mineral Waters Plant OJSC. He is suspected of committing an offense under Paragraph B of Part 2 of Article 199 of the Criminal Code of Russia (tax and fines evasion on an especially large scale).
