Prosecutor seeks 8 years in prison for defendant in Aeroflot embezzlement case
MOSCOW, January 18 (RAPSI) – Prosecutor in the embezzlement case at Aeroflot has asked the Savelovsky District Court to sentence defendant Nikolay Glushkov to eight years behind bars, RAPSI reports from the court on Wednesday.
Additionally, prosecutor demanded to recover about 9 billion rubles ($150,000,000) in caused damages from the former first deputy director of Aeroflot.
Glushkov stands accused of conspiring with businessman Boris Berezovsky and convincing Aeroflot's general director Yevgeny Shaposhnikov to carry out financial restructuring. Investigators claim that the loans provided for the alleged restructuring were embezzled. The estimated cost of the alleged damage is $122.5 million.
Glushkov is on the international wanted list. In 2010, he received political asylum in the United Kingdom.
Prosecutor said that sum of 9 billion rubles was calculated based on damages themselves, interest rate for the use of embezzled money and inflation.
