MOSCOW, August 21 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case of evasion of 200 million ruble customs duties in the imports of a Boeing 757 commercial jetliner has been opened in Moscow, the Moscow interregional transport investigative department of the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Based on materials of the Main Anti-Contraband Department of the Federal Customs Service, the criminal case was opened against Yevgeny Struchkov, 32-year-old head of the Yakutia airline logistics department, and some other individuals on suspicion of evasion of customs duties conspired by a group of individuals (Part 2 of Article 194 of the Russian Criminal Code),” the department said.
“According to detectives, Struchkov and a number of hitherto unidentified persons conspired to illegally import a Boeing 757-200 in 2009. The customs declaration underestimated the actual cost of the jetliner,” the department said.
As a result, more than 200 million rubles were evaded in customs payments.
Searches and other investigative procedures are underway at the offices of the Yakutia airline and the suspect’s homes in Yakutsk and Moscow.
