MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow City Court on Wednesday upheld two-month custody for Dinara Bilaylova, accused of 100-million-rouble fraud in the high-profile Oboronservis case.
Earlier, the court of original jurisdiction met the investigator's petition to put Bilyalova in remand prison. Bilyalova is accused under Article 159, Part 4 of Russia's penal code /grand fraud/.
The investigator said in April 2011, the main troops development department /GUOV/ affiliated with Oboronservis and the Expert legal support center signed a contract under which "Experts" pledged to broker the transactions to sell GUOV movable and immovable assets.
"Over 18 months, more than 123 million roubles worth of agent's fees were transferred to "Experts" accounts. A check found however that "Expert" actually had not provided any services," the main military investigation department reported.
Belyalova used to be director general of the "Expert" legal support center, as did Yekaterina Smetanova, another suspect in the case, but at the Khamovniki court, she was introduced as former director of the Mira company which she had headed in February 2012. The investigators assume that Mira, too, was involved in the corruption scheme.
Bilyalova's criminal case is part of the probe into fraud in the sale of real estate, land and shares belonging to the Defense Ministry's Oboronservis company.
