    Furgal's second criminal case will be considered in Moscow

    Published on

    The second criminal case against the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal will be considered in the Babushkinsky District Court of Moscow. It is reported by TASS.

    This decision, at the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office, was made by the Supreme Court of Russia. However, the defendant’s lawyer stated that he would appeal against it and would insist on holding the trial in the Khabarovsk Territory. The ex-governor is charged with embezzling funds from SME Bank. Nine other people are involved in the case. They are accused of fraud, organization of a criminal community and participation in it, illegal business activities, abuse of power and laundering of criminal proceeds. According to the prosecutor’s office, Furgal and his accomplices from December 2018 to July 2020 stole more than 2 billion rubles and 8.7 million dollars through fraud, and then legalized them. On February 10, 2023, Furgal was sentenced to 22 years in a strict regime colony for organizing two murders and an attempt on competitors in 2004-2005.
