SUDOGDA/Vladimir Region/, August 25. /TASS/. The Sudogodsky district court in central Russia has ruled to release on parole former Defense Ministry official Yevgenia Vasilyeva, convicted for large-scale embezzlement.
Judge Ilya Galagan has satisfied a motion of her defense team on early parole.
The court ruled that Vasilyeva should leave the penal colony on Tuesday. Explaining the decision, the court said it has taken into consideration Vasilyeva’s "positive dynamics" while behind the bars.
Vasilyeva will not be allowed to move to another place without notifying an oversight authority, to appear in public places when being drunk, as well as to commit administrative offences. The woman also has to be employed.
Vasilyeva, the former chief of Russia's Defense Ministry property department, was sentenced in May 2015 to five years in a women's colony in a village located in the Vladimir region’s Sudogodsky district, in central Russia.
Vasilyeva caused damage to the state of about 650 million rubles ($9.6 million at the current exchange rate). Last week, the defense lawyers said Vasilyeva had paid damages to the affected persons in full and there were no unsatisfied claims against her.
