Energy Holding CEO put under house arrest in Aeroflot embezzlement case
MOSCOW, December 1 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court on Thursday put Konstantin Moskalev, CEO of the Energy Holding company allegedly implicated in embezzling over 21 million rubles ($322,000) from Aeroflot airline, under house arrest until January 28, RIA Novosti reports.
In September, investigators opened a criminal case over abuse of office and large scale embezzlement against Aeroflot construction department head Andrey Sharikov and Energy Holding founder Igor Afrikanov.
On November 29, Moskalev and Aeroflot chief power engineer Nukolay Fedorov were arrested on suspicion of involvement in this case. Fedorenkov pleaded guilty in part and was put under house arrest on November 30.
Investigators claim that the abovementioned persons embezzled money from Aeroflot. They entered data inflating electrical supplied energy in documents. Payment of services which Energy Holding in practice had failed to provide caused a 21-million-ruble damage to Aeroflot.
