Moscow court Wednesday found Yukos lawyer Svetlana Bakhmina guilty of embezzlement and tax-evasion
A Moscow court Wednesday found Yukos lawyer Svetlana Bakhmina guilty of embezzlement and tax-evasion. Prosecutors have demanded a nine-year prison sentence for Bakhmina, deputy head of the legal department at Yukos-Moskva. The presiding judge at Moscow's Simonovsky Court said prosecutors had provided strong evidence in the case, but has not yet announced her verdict. Bakhmina was arrested on December 10, 2004, following an investigation that alleged she was part of a group that embezzled property worth a total of eight billion rubles ($300 million) belonging to Tomskneft and Eastern Oil Company. Prosecutors have also charged Bakhmina with tax evasion of approximately 600,000 rubles (about $20,000), although her lawyer Olga Kozyreva said her defendant had had no intention to commit a crime and had already paid 606,040 rubles in back taxes for 2001-2002.
