RusHydro ex-head, chief accountant to stay under house arrest till June 22
MOSCOW, May 19 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Basmanny District Court has extended the house arrest of Yevgeny Dod, ex-head of hydroelectric power giant RusHydro, and Dmitry Finkel, the company’s ex-chief accountant, in a 73-million-ruble ($1.2 million) embezzlement case, the court’s spokesperson Yunona Tsareva told RAPSI on Friday.
They will remain under house arrest until June 22.
In late December 2016, the court replaced the defendants’ detention with the house arrest upon the investigator’s motion. Investigator said that RusHydro ex-head had reimbursed the company for alleged damage.
According to the Investigative Committee, in 2013, Dod awarded himself a bonus for his work in RusHydro of 353.2 million rubles (about $6.2 million at the current exchange rate), overestimating therefore its amount by 73 million rubles.
Dod and Finkel pleaded not guilty. However, Dod expressed his willingness to reimburse the company for alleged damage.

Dod left RusHydro at his own request in August 2015.
