MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Justice Ministry sees no violations in the decision to release on parole the key figure in the Oboronservis case, Yevgeniya Vasilieva, Justice Minister Aleksandr Konovalov told the media.
"We have no evidence pointing to violations of the law at this point. The check has been carried out. At first sight we identified no violations," Konovalov said.
Vasilieva, a former chief of the Defense Ministry’s property relations department, was found guilty and sentenced to a five-year prison term for multi-million embezzlement and fraud in marketing the Defense Ministry’s assets. Starting from July 23 she was serving the term in a penitentiary in the village of Golovino, the Vladimir Region. On August 25, a court in Sudogda ordered Vasilieva’s release on parole. It mentioned her good conduct and state of mind indicating she was firm on the path of correction.
Also, the court took into account a favourable character reference from the penitentiary saying that she "enjoyed other convicts’ respect and was polite and tactful towards prison staff and other persons serving sentences.".
