ST. PETERSBURG, November 30 (Itar-Tass) —— It will take up to four years to relocate Russia’s Supreme Court and Supreme Court of Arbitration from Moscow to St. Petersburg, chairman of the Supreme Court of Arbitration Anton Ivanov said on Friday.
“The presidential property management office says it can be done within 30 months. I don’t think so. I think we can do it in four years,” he said.
The relocation of the two courts will cost 50 billion roubles, he said and added the bulk of the sum will go to the Supreme Court. As of now, the Supreme Court of Arbitration has 90 judges and about 500 other employees. The stuff of the Supreme Court is thrice as big.
Earlier, President Vladimir Putin suggested that the two supreme courts should be relocated to St. Petersburg, where they can have bigger premises. According to the presidential property manager, Vladimir Kozhin, the relocation will take 30 months and 50 billion roubles.
