Protection Alexei Ulyukayev will appeal against the return of the retired FSB General Oleg Feoktistov two million dollars in cash, which was transferred to the former Minister as a bribe. This was stated by RIA Novosti his lawyer Larisa Kashtanova.

According to the defense, the General did not prove the right of ownership and disposition of the specified money. Money, said the lawyer, belongs to another person, which is confirmed by the case materials.

Money — back

Previously the Zamoskvoretsky court decided to return Feoktistov two million dollars, which were recognized as material evidence in the case of the speaker. The decision was announced by judge Larisa Semenova.

The money the head of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin in the framework of the operational experiment gave Ulyukayev, as found by the court, for issuing a positive opinion on the purchase of «Bashneft».

Statement Feoktistov considered in closed from media mode. Statement to close the meeting was submitted to the court under the signature of a Deputy head of the FSB, whose name has not been named.

Feoktistov was personally involved in the meeting, the former Minister via video link from prison.

The judge had read out publicly, at this time, five bailiffs blocked Feoktistov to the TV people and photographers did not shoot him.

To a fine of 130 thousand rubles

Kashtanova also explained why the speaker still has not paid the fine of 130 million rubles assigned to him by the court.

«Fine is not currently paid, because the property arrested,» the lawyer said, asking to cancel the decision about arrest of land, money, watches, and car speaker.

The Prosecutor did not object to the withdrawal of arrest from the account of the speaker, but did not agree with the proposal to cancel the seizure.

«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 Paul Filipchuk.

But in the end the court decided to collect from the account of the speaker the amount of the fine.

Business Speaker

Ex-Minister of economic development was sentenced to eight years in prison for bribery. While the speaker pleaded not guilty, calling the incident a provocation. The main evidence of the prosecution testimony began Feoktistova, head of the security service of Rosneft.
