The in-absentia trial of Boris Berezovsky will begin in Moscow's Savyolovsky court on July 2
The in-absentia trial of Boris Berezovsky will begin in Moscow's Savyolovsky court on July 2, Moscow City Court spokeswoman Anna Usachyova told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. "A preliminary hearing of the case will take place on July 2. Since the defendant is on the wanted list, the case against him will be considered in absentia, as the effective legislation envisions such a procedure," she said. According to the spokeswoman, the preliminary hearing will be held in camera. The date of substantive hearings has not been set yet. The case will be considered by Moscow's Savyolovsky court. Berezovsky is accused of embezzling Aeroflot funds. On April 13, Russian prosecutors brought new charges against Berezovsky in the Aeroflot case. He is accused of stealing and legalizing 214 million roubles of Aeroflot company money. Earlier, Berezovsky appeared in the case as accomplice and abettor, but now he is a perpetrator of the crime. An in absentia sentence for Berezovsky is possible, spokeswoman for the Russian Prosecutor-General's Office Marina Gridneva said. Four criminal cases against Berezovsky were opened in Russia: over actions aimed at a violent seizure of power, the Aeroflot money theft, the VAZ cars fraud and the illegal acquisition of a house and land plot in the Zhukovka health center in the Moscow region. Last year, Moscow's Savyolovsky court gave two-year suspended sentences to deputy director general of Aeroflot Nikolai Glushenkov, chief accountant Lidia Kryzhevskaya and head of the FOK firm Roman Sheinin, found guilty of fraud involving Aeroflot's hard currency earnings.
