ST.PETERSBURG, September 28. /TASS/. The Russian side has reminded the Polish Consulate General in St.Petersburg of the need to execute the court order and vacate the premises, for which they have not paid the rent for 20 years now. The total debt to be paid is $1.1 million.
The lawsuit to the regional Court of Arbitration was filed by the state enterprise Inpredservice providing services to the foreign diplomatic missions in St.Petersburg. In March, the court ruled in favor of the plaintiff.
"The decision of the Arbitration Court of St.Petersburg and the Leningrad region of February 2015 on the lawsuit of Inpredservice against Poland’s Consulate General on recovery of rent arrears has not been executed. The documents received from the court have been kept at the Inpredservice state unitary enterprise," the enterprise’s Director-General Boris Morozov told TASS on Monday. "The Polish side has also been offered alternative accommodation options."
According to him, the plaintiff’s actions will depend on the results of the talks, which are held through the Russian Foreign Ministry. "The conditions and procedure of using the building by the Consulate General are viewed in the context of the entire complex of property issues," Morozov said.
