MOSCOW, May 25 (RAPSI) – Ex-managers of the Mirax Group were arrested in absentia by a Moscow court in relation to embezzlement criminal case launched against former owner of the company, Sergei Polonsky, Kommersant reported on Wednesday.

The Tverskoy District Court of Moscow has issued arrest warrant in absentia for former first vice-president of the company Dmitriy Lutsenko, former chairman of the board Maksim Temnikov and a member of the board Alexei Adikayev, Kommersant has reported.

According to the newspaper, charges brought against ex-managers of the Mirax Group are similar to charges brought against Polonsky himself.

Polonsky, head of Potok Group (earlier Mirax) has been charged with fraud in absentia in the case of embezzlement of 5.7 billion rubles ($75 mln) from the Kutuzovskaya Mile residential community interest holders in the summer of 2013.
In May 2015, Cambodia, where Polonsky was escaping the Russian law enforcement, extradited him to Russia. In June, experts found the businessman sane.

If convicted, Polonsky could face up to ten years in prison. Polonsky has pleaded not guilty.
