MOSCOW, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - Apprehended damage incurred by the former head of the Russian defence ministry’s property relations department, Yevgenia Vasilyeva, reaches six billion roubles, a representative from the Russian Investigations Committee said on Thursday and insisted that Moscow’s Khamovniki district court sanction extension of her home arrest.
Earlier, investigators estimated the damage from her actions at four billion roubles.
“Currently, as many as 23 criminal cases have been institutes. Overall damage exceeds six billion roubles,” the Russian Investigation Committee representative said.
A representative from the prosecutor’s office drew attention to the fact that on July 13 Vasilyeva was 16 minutes late to return from a walk and demand that the time of walk be reduced from three to two hours.
Vasilyeva, in turn, denied she had been late. “On that day, I never left home at all,” she said. “It was not Vasilyeva’s violation but a malfunction in the equipment operation,” her lawyer, Alexander Gofshein, stressed.
The investigators demanded Vasilyeva’s home arrest term be extended till September 23. The current home arrest term expires on July 23.
