MOSCOW, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Former Russian Deputy Agriculture Minister Alexei Bazhanov is placed on international wanted list. Tverskoy court in Moscow said this on Monday at hearings of Bazhanov’s absentia arrest for embezzlement of more than 1.1 billion ruble credit that Russian agricultural bank Rosselkhozbank gave to refined sunflower oil-producing holding Masloprodukt.
“At first, Bazhanov was put on the federal, then on international wanted list,” his lawyer said at the court session.
The detective asks to sanction absentia arrest of Bazhanov who escapes justice outside Russia.
For his part, the lawyer of the former senior official asks to satisfy this request, because she finds it illegal and groundless. The lawyer also attached to case files medical documents saying that Bazhanov is undergoing treatment abroad.
Bazhanov is a defendant in the criminal case over embezzlement of 1.1 billion rubles of state funds belonging to Russian largest leasing company Rosagroleasing.
Three criminal cases merged at the trial are being investigated against the former senior official.
