Source The case of fraud against a well-known lawyer was sent by the prosecutor's office to the court. As it became known to Kommersant, the Moscow prosecutor's office approved an indictment in a high-profile criminal case of embezzlement in the amount of 3.5 billion rubles, the victims of which are lawyer and well-known fixer Denis Shapiro (aka Dionisy Zolotov). A whole team of participants in the business associated with the production and sale of household chemicals will appear before the court, and several more people have been put on the wanted list. The defendants themselves claimed that they were victims of a raider seizure, but the investigation, as well as supervision after him, did not believe in this.
By decision of the Moscow prosecutor's office, Alexander Balakhovsky and Yakov Bosinzon, co-owners of the B&B holding for the production and wholesale of household chemicals, as well as the former general director of the company, Alexander Savoskin, will appear before the Dorogomilovsky District Court of the capital.
They are accused by the Main Investigation Department of the TFR in Moscow of committing a particularly large-scale fraud (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), illegal use of trademarks and industrial designs (part 2 of article 147, part 3 of article 180 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), abuse the powers of the head of a commercial organization, which entailed grave consequences (part 3 of article 33 and part 2 of article 201 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), and the legalization of proceeds from crime (clause “b” of part 4 of article 174.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
According to the investigation, which was initially conducted in the district division of the ICR, and after numerous complaints from the defendants, for objectivity, was transferred to the investigative headquarters, Denis Shapiro was the owner of 30% in the authorized capital of Best Clean LLC, which owned the trademarks Unicum, Easywork, Viely, Bagheera, Unicum, B&B, IRC91, Arrekh, etc. – household chemicals are produced under them. The lawyer was elected general director of the LLC, which became part of the B&B holding.
However, after Mr. Shapiro was imprisoned on charges of fraud, the defendants, who established the State Investigation Department of the ICR, were transferred to the BellaBen company controlled by them. Balur in Budapest trademarks and industrial designs, causing damage to their co-owner in the amount of more than 1 billion rubles.
Another 2.5 billion rubles, according to the investigation, was lost by Best Clean LLC, which went bankrupt in 2017 through arbitration.
It is interesting that the matter did not come to supervision immediately. Getting acquainted with 40 volumes of the investigation, the lawyer of the victim Shapiro Roman Kandaurov discovered that Tatyana Bosinzon, the daughter of Alexander Balakhovsky and the wife of Yakov Bosinzon, is listed in the materials as a person unaware of the criminal plans of the accused. Meanwhile, according to the injured party, she took an active part in the case. After the lawyer appealed to the leadership of the department, the investigator was replaced, and the error was corrected by the new investigator. At the end of October, by a decision of the investigator for especially important cases of the Main Investigative Committee of the ICR, materials on the fact of Tatyana Bosinzon's illegal actions were separated from the criminal case into a separate proceeding.
“Ms. Bosinzon is the head of the BellaBen-Balur company, to which all the intellectual property stolen from Best Clean LLC was re-registered. If Tatyana Bosinzon's involvement in the alleged acts is confirmed, she will be charged with the legalization (laundering), illegal use of foreign trademarks and industrial designs by a group of persons by prior agreement on a large scale,” said Mr. Kandaurov.<br/
Olesya Kaplistaya has already been put on the wanted list.Finally, from the completed case, materials were isolated on the grounds of embezzlement and embezzlement on an especially large scale (part 4 of article 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
As Roman Kandaurov explained, they deal with the theft of plant equipment, where household chemicals are still produced. It, including production lines, mixers, loaders, etc., was retroactively re-registered under fictitious contracts from Best Clean LLC, first to BK Production Company LLC, and then to almost consonant BK Production Company B&B LLC, remaining at the same time, at the same place, at a plant in the city of Vidnoye, Moscow Region.
“In addition to the already involved defendants in the criminal case, Alexander Shelepov, the general director and controlling participant in the production company against which the attackers removed the assets,” the representative of the victim noted.
In turn, the representatives of the defendants in the criminal case, confident that they were not involved in the crime, expect to prove this, if not at the investigation and in the prosecutor’s office, which, according to their version, were biased, at least in court.
