MOSCOW, May 11. /TASS/. Another criminal case has been opened over embezzlement committed in the process of construction at the Vostochny spaceport, Interior Ministry spokeswoman Irina Volk has said.
"The investigative division of the Amur Region’s Interior Ministry office has opened a criminal case against the head of a commercial organization commissioned to do works at Vostochny spaceport facilities. He is suspected of gross embezzlement under Part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code," Volk said.
According to preliminary findings the company, whose competences include project design, building, assembly, tune-up and engineering works concluded a contract in 2014 for doing a package of building and assembly works at the spaceport’s facilities.
The client transferred an advance payment to the building company’s bank account. The investigators have found that the company’s head used more than 76 million roubles of the advance payment to settle his own credit liabilities.
"In this way the accused committed an act of gross embezzlement," Volk said.
