MOSCOW, February 20, 4:14 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow City Court on Wednesday extended, to July, the house arrest of former head of Defense Ministry's Property Department Yevgenia Vasilyeva, the key suspect in the Oboronservis case.
She is accused of 12 episodes of crime involving the sale of Oboronservis’s 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.
"The court has met the investigator's petition to extend Vasilyeva's house arrest by five months to July 23," the judge said in a resolution.
Vasilyeva denied any designs to "negatively influence" witnesses or participants in legal proceedings, while the military prosecutor specifically noted that Vasilyeva was not aware of the fact that a as person under house arrest could not keep her ordinary lifestyle or do what she wanted.
Vasilyeva 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.
