MOSCOW, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— A new charge of attempted fraud has been brought against businessman Viktor Baturin, the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.
“The main investigation division of the Interior Ministry’s Moscow department brought the charge of attempted fraud [Part 3, Article 30 and Part 4, Article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code] against Viktor Baturin,” it said.
In all, Baturin is indicted with three criminal episodes. “He is accused of two attempts of embezzlement from the Inteco Company with false bills. Initially he was suspected of the attempted embezzlement of 10.8 million rubles. A new episode of the attempted embezzlement of over 5.6 billion rubles has been added by now,” the department said.
“Also Baturin is charged with property embezzlement by fraud. The main investigation division says that Baturin received 250,000 euros from a Moscow businessman with no intention to return the money,” it said.
