Investigators claimed that the former head of a state-owned company Rusnano, Leonid M., violated the law transferring RUB 220 mln, which were allocated to Rusnanotech, to Alemar Co., which was controlled by him.

Moscow Basmanny Court has frozen the bank accounts of the former head of a state-owned company Rusnano, Leonid M., who was charged with large scale embezzlement, the Russian Legal Information Agency, RAPSI, reported, August 3.

“The Moscow Basmanny District Court has frozen the bank accounts of the ex-chief of Rusnano (formerly Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies), Leonid M., following charges of embezzlement,” the defendant’s lawyer, Ruslan Kozhura, said. “Leonid M. was charged in embezzlement of RUB 227 mln.”

Reportedly, Leonid M. opened an account and deposited funds sufficient to cover damages allegedly caused by him. The account was opened upon agreement with investigators.

Investigators claimed that the suspect violated the law transferring RUB 220 mln, which were allocated to Rusnanotech, to Alemar Co., which was controlled by him.

Investigators believe that Leonid M. hired managers Svyatoslav P. and Andrey M. as a part of his plan to embezzle Rusnano’s funds, according to the media.

Leonid M. was put under house arrest until September 1. Svyatoslav P. was detained upon the order of the Moscow Basmanny District Court.
