In Moscow, a probe launched into a notary who participated in registering real estate deals with property of a family of actor Alexey Batalov

The Central Administrative District Department of the Moscow Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia launched a probe into Moscow notary Dmitry Bubliy. He is suspected of committing offenses under Paragraph 5 of Article 33, Part 4 of Article 159 (assistance to swindling) and Part 1 of Article 202 of the Criminal Code of Russia (abuse of authority of private notaries and auditors).

It was established that Bubliy produced life maintenance contracts, on the basis of which a share in the apartment on Serafimovicha Street, an apartment in the 1st Samotechny Lane and non-residential premises belonging to Maria Batalova became property of Mikhail Tsivin and Natalia Drozhzhina. Subsequently, Bubliy certified the signatures of the victims - Maria Batalova and her legal representative Gitana Leontenko - without their presence, as evidenced by the absence of the victims' signatures in the register of notarial actions. According to the investigation, in carrying out these actions, Bubliy abused his powers and facilitated the theft of property worth more than 35 million rubles.

In the near future, the suspect will be taken to the investigative unit to take part in the necessary investigative actions.

As previously reported, the widow and daughter of the famous actor Batalov Maria fraudulently lost her share in a four-room apartment, the actor's workshop, two apartments, one of which is located in the center of Moscow, as well as a large sum of money. Mikhail Tsivin and Natalia Drozhzheva were accused of swindling (Part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of Russia) in terms of the probe.

The said probes will be merged in one process. The investigation is ongoing.
