Sentence imposed over an organizer of multimillion embezzlement of budgetary funds


The evidence gathered by the Main Department on Major Crimes Investigation of the Investigative Committee of Russia was found by the court to be sufficient to sentence Oleg Filippov. He was found guilty of committing offenses under Part 4 of Article 159, Paragraphs A, B of Part 4 of Article 174.1 of the Criminal Code of  Russia (swindling, legalization).

Investigation and the court established that Oleg Filippov, being a head of a public enterprise, created an organized group in order to embezzle Moscow municipal budget. In 2013 the accomplices stole over 660 million rubles of budgetary funds allocated for arrangement of an intelligent system for monitoring parking spaces on the streets of the capital and subsequently legalized the money acquired in an illegal way.

Previously the accused signed a pre-trial immunity agreement.

The court ruled to sentence Filippov to 5.5 years of imprisonment in a general regime penal colony.

Probes into other six participants of the organized group are being considered by court. One more perpetrator hid outside the Russian Federation and was therefore put on an international wanted list.
