MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. Moscow's Basmanny District Court handed down an order to confiscate 10 land plots and a house in the Smolensk region that had belonged to the ex-Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev, the court’s spokesperson Yunona Tsareva told TASS.
"At the investigator’s request, on November 29 the court placed 10 land plots and a house in Smolensk region that had belonged to Alexey Ulyukayev under asset forfeiture," she explained.
Tsareva noted that the confiscated land plots are located in the Smolensk region. "So far, the court has not received an appeal against the seizure of the property," she added.
Ulyukayev was detained on November 14, while receiving a $2 mln bribe in exchange for the Economic Development Ministry’s consent to give the go-ahead to Rosneft’s acquisition of a 50.08% stake in another oil company, Bashneft, and was put under house arrest. On November 15, President Vladimir Putin dismissed Ulyukayev from his high-ranking post citing loss of trust.
