Justice was found for Stanislav Keimenov
The Main Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee accused the President of the Russian Guild of Arbitration Managers Stanislav Kleimenov and the bankruptcy trustee of the bankrupt company “Dom Invest” Pavel Korshunova in particularly large-scale fraud. Kommersant writes about this.
According to investigators, in January 2021, Kleimenov and Korshunov contributed to the removal from bankruptcy estate of 39 apartments in new buildings near Moscow with a total value of at least 125 million rubles. The apartments were part of the collateral of Mezhtopenergobank, which ceased operations in July 2017 due to the revocation of its license and was declared bankrupt in September of the same year.
A criminal case was opened against the managers in May 2023, the publication reports. The applicant was the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA). It claims that fraud with apartments occurred with the knowledge and consent of representatives of the Dom Stroy company, which financed the construction of houses in Reutov and Odintsovo, and subsequently went bankrupt.
As stated in the article, according to the agreement between Dom Stroi and the developer, the Stroytekhinvest company, the right to claim debts in the amount of 125 million rubles. could be assigned to another organization or individual. However, by the time the agreement was implemented, Dom Stroy and Mezhtopenergobank themselves became bankrupt.
According to the case materials, in January 2021, the right to assign debt claims was put up for auction, and the winning Moscow private entrepreneur received 39 apartments in unfinished buildings, paying Dom Stroyu only 25.5 million rubles. When the residential buildings were ready, these apartments were sold at the market price.
The DIA tried to challenge the deal in arbitration courts, but they recognized it as legal. The winning bidder and manager Korshunov claimed that thanks to this deal they received funds that made it possible to complete the construction of the houses.
The Investigative Committee did not agree with this and opened a case under Art. 159 part 4 of the Criminal Code on fraud on an especially large scale, the maximum penalty for which is 10 years in prison. The investigation believes that Korshunov acted on Kleimenov’s orders.
The defense pointed out that the transaction in question was approved by the meeting of Dom Stroi creditors. According to the lawyers, the investigation did not provide evidence of their clients’ involvement in major fraud.
The Preobrazhensky District Court of Moscow initially agreed with the investigators’ arguments and sent Kleimenov and Korshunov to a pre-trial detention center. But following an appeal in the Moscow City Court, lawyers achieved Korshunov’s transfer to house arrest.
