The Zamoskvoretsky court of Moscow on Friday has delivered two judgements in the case of ex-Minister Alexei Ulyukayev: one — on bribe of $ 2 million in cash was returned to the retired FSB General Oleg Feoktistov, the other — deducted from the account of the convicted 130 million rubles as a fine imposed by the sentence.

First, the judge Larisa Semenova decided the fate of 2 million dollars that the head of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin gave Ulyukayev as a bribe. This money 100 dollar bills kept as evidence. As follows from the catechumens in court materials, Feoktistov went to court with the statement for return, as he is in 2016, under the act of transfer and acceptance provided their FSB for the operational experiment.

A hearing at the request of the FSB took place behind closed doors. When the judge went to the consultative room for decision, the General felt tense, on questions of journalists answered, then leaned back in his chair, put his elbows on the table, sometimes yawned. In front of the Desk, shoulder to shoulder, lined up five bailiffs, blocking and interfering with the TV cameras and photographers to shoot the former head of the security service of Rosneft.

Only one outwardly impassive, the General perked up. Ulyukayev participated in the meeting via video link from prison in Tver, and at some point one of the cameramen asked not to block the screen view from which the hall was watching the ex-Minister to «remove the main character». Remark on this request of another journalist — «the Question of who’s the boss?» — forced to smile widely Feoktistova.

The speaker looked serious, even sad. He was short, wearing a black prison jumpsuit. In those moments when the judge went into the jury room, he read something. Journalists ask him questions did not have the opportunity because the microphone on the break time was off — the ex-Minister only heard what happens in the courtroom on those points.

Following a court ruling about the «return on identity» of two million dollars Feoktistov General quickly left the room, went outside and sat in the Audi and waited for a personal driver.

Prosecutor Paul Filipchuk expressed the view that partial request of the convicted person. «In terms of arguments about the need to withdraw funds from the account, then there is no obstacle, because the amount in the accounts are sufficient to pay for the fine. As for other property, the court has already ruled that the arrest of the property will be cleared after paying a fine. After payment of the fine in the measure — arrest — will be automatically charged,» said the Prosecutor.

The court agreed with him and issued a decree to write off from the account of the speaker 130 million rubles in favor of the state, the arrest of property — land, watch, car, etc. — are still in force.

Lawyers against

Lawyer Larisa Kashtanova Ulyukayev told RIA Novosti that it intends to appeal the court’s decision to return $ 2 million Feoktistov, as ownership of these money the applicant has not proved, and the materials even suggest that money is not his.

Third-party expert lawyer Edward Isetskiy believes that in this matter the protection of the right speaker.

«The protection of rights, there is a complex structure of civil law relations. In a criminal case it is established that the money transferred Sechin (as a briber), that is, set the possession and disposal of money (possession, disposal and use of three elements constituting a real right of ownership), so that the court incorporating the established verdict of the court of the circumstances was to find out which relations arose over the question of transfer of real rights on money between Sechin and Feoktistov. And further, on what basis has any real rights, and whether at all, they Feoktistov,» explained Isetsky RIA Novosti.
