MOSCOW, July 3 /TASS/. Rosnano’s Chief Anatoly Chubais is ready to testify on the case of embezzlement of the corporation’s funds soon.
"Anatoly Chubais has asked us to set the date and time with the investigators so that he could come to testify on the case on his own initiative. None of the investigators has summoned him," lawyer Anatoly Asnis, who represents Rosnano’s interests, told TASS.
He said he expected the date to be set soon.
According to Asnis, Chubais is planning to bear witness to defend his former colleague Leonid Melamed.
Rosnano has recently distributed a statement which said that the corporation had not suffered any losses due to the activities of its former chief Leonid Melamed. "Rosnano has no reason to assume that the Rosnanotech State Corporation suffered any material losses from a contract [concluded on results of a tender]," the company’s statement said.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Sergey Kiriyenko, the head of the Rosatom State Corporation, have given positive characteristics to Melamed. The suspect’s lawyer Ruslan Kozhura added them to Melamed’s criminal case before he submitted it to Moscow’s Basmanny Court, which was supposed to choose a measure of restraint for Melamed on Friday.
