MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow City Court has extended until February 23, 2014 the house arrest for Russian Defence Ministry’s former official Yevgenia Vassilyeva, accused in the Oboronservis fraud case.
The court ruled to satisfy investigator’s motion and extend Vassilyeva’s house arrest to 15 months, until February 23, 2014, the judge said.
Former head of Defence Ministry’s property department Yevgenia Vassilyeva was placed under house arrest on November 23, 2012. Later, the Moscow City Court mitigated her house arrest conditions, but maintained the ban on leaving home without investigator’s permission.
The court satisfied the demand of the investigator and the prosecutor, banning her communication with reporters and other people on issues concerning investigation of the criminal case. The only exception is her lawyers.
She is either not allowed to take a walk and leave home without written permission from the investigator. She is not allowed to receive guests, use the post, the internet and other means of communication. On Thursday, the investigator and the prosecutor said Vassilyeva was abusing the mitigated terms of her house arrest.
Vassilyeva is accused on 12 episodes of criminal activity connected with the sales of Oboronservis’s immobile property - theft of funds of that joint stock company. According to the Investigative Committee’s chief military investigation department, the damage caused by her criminal activity exceeds three billion roubles.
