MOSCOW, September 5 - RAPSI. Truck manufacturer ZiL has appealed the dismissal of its complaint against its former managing company to collect $35 million, the Moscow Commercial Court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/ Wednesday.

ZiL claimed that a management agreement with the Moscow Automobile Company was illegally extended from October 2008 to April 2011. The plaintiff sought to recover the bonuses paid to the company over that period.

Earlier, the court received materials in the case demonstrating that the "managing company's services were overpriced."

ZiL's representative said at the hearing that the agreement should be declared null and void, as it had not been approved at a shareholders meeting. In turn, the defendant said the agreement "has nothing to do" with the meeting.

ZiL is Russia's first automobile plant. It was established in 1916. Its total area is 280 hectares. ZiL mostly produces six-ton gasoline and diesel trucks. The plant also provides special vehicles for the Emergencies Ministry.
