ST PETERSBURG, November 18. /TASS/. Arbitration court of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region on Tuesday gets down to considering a claim over “ungrounded enrichment” in the amount of 74.3 million rubles (about $1.58 million), which a state unitary enterprise in charge of servicing foreign legations St Petersburg has filed against the Consulate General of Poland.
Apart from levying the money, the claimant, Interpredservis, also demands that the Consulate vacate a building on the city’s downtown Fifth Sovietskaya Street.
The city committee for municipal property management has been joined as a third party to the legal action.
When a reporter asked if there might be a connection between the legal claim against the Polish consulate and the current political situation, Yevgeny Grigoryev, a spokesman for the city’s committee for external relations answered firmly in the negative.
“There is no connection,” he said. “This is just a dispute between two economic entities, which I think should have been resolved a long time ago.”
In the meantime, diplomats at the Polish Consulate General told TASS they would refrain from making any comments on the Interpredservis claim.
