MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Businessman Viktor Baturin is detained in Moscow on suspicion of attempting to commit fraud, a Moscow police source told Itar-Tass.
Baturin is suspected of committing a crime -- attempting to commit fraud (Part 3 of Article 30 and Part 4 of Article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code). He is detained in accordance with Article 91 of the Criminal Procedure Code, the source said, adding that the Moscow police investigative department dealt with the case.
Itar-Tass has not received comments from the Moscow police yet.
Baturin is brother of former Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov’s wife.
According to some sources, he is detained over a new criminal case of attempted fraud with Inteco company bills.
Itar-Tass has not received comments from Moscow police so far.
Baturin already has conviction. In June 2011, Moscow's Presnensky district court sentenced him to three years on probation, finding him guilty of fraud.
The businessman did not appeal against the court ruling. He said the case was "ordered" and it was connected with Luzhkov's dismissal and the financial disagreement with Yelena Baturina. He did not rule out that new criminal cases might be initiated against him.
