MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow City Court on Thursday will review an appeal against the verdict on entrepreneur Viktor Baturin sentenced to seven years for fraud.
Baturin, brother of former Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov's wife, was arrested on November 30, 2011. He was charged with several counts of attempted grand fraud, including attempted theft of 10.8 million rubles under fake promissory notes of the INTEKO company and attempted theft of 5.6 billion rubles.
On November 28, 2011, he presented a false promissory note of the INTEKO company at its office in Sadovaya-Spasskaya Street, 28. It was worth 10.8 million rubles, and Baturin demanded immediate payment.
INTEKO personnel had misgivings regarding the authenticity of the promissory note. They called police who detained Viktor Baturin.
The entrepreneur claimed it is impossible to forge a promissory note in principle, as only a single copy can be issued.
In June 2011, Moscow's Presnya court gave Baturin a three-year suspended sentence for real estate fraud. Earlier, a 23-millioin-rouble tax evasion case against him was dropped due to the statute of limitation.
On April 9, 2012, more than 1.3 million rubles were collected from Baturin after a court granted a claim by the Sochi administration. The sum was recovered to pay Baturin's debt for leasing a land plot on the premises of an Adler health resort in the period from 2008 through 2010.
