The Prosecutor General’s Office asked to recover from the defendants $ 750 million, as property in respect of which, in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation on combating corruption, evidence of its acquisition with legitimate income was not presented. The search responder was Port-Petrovsk Ltd.
According to the prosecutor’s office, Magomed Magomedov held a position in the Federation Council of the Russian Federation and at that time could not engage in entrepreneurial activity, nevertheless, through the companies controlled by him, the Primorsky Commercial Port, and his brother helped him in this.
“Magomed Magomedov during his senatorship had income from sources other than wages,” the prosecutor said.
According to the investigation, Magomed Magomedov’s income did not correspond to his lifestyle.
Currently, the Meshchansky Court of Moscow is considering a case against the Magomedovs, as well as the head of the Inteks company, which is part of Summa, Artur Maksidov.
The Magomedovs were arrested in Moscow at the end of March 2018. They were charged with committing crimes under several articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: “Organization of a criminal community and participation in it”, “Fraud on an especially large scale”, “Embezzlement on an especially large scale”. Also in custody is the general director of Inteks, a member of the Summa group, Artur Maksidov, who is accused of embezzling almost 669 million rubles.
In August 2019, the brothers were charged with two more counts of fraud.
On July 8, 2021, it was reported that the company of the Summa group of the Magomedov brothers was suspected of a new scam for 7 billion rubles.
According to the investigation, in the period from 2014 to 2017, employees of the Stroynovatsiya organization (part of the Summa group of companies, declared bankrupt on July 11, 2019) did not use the funds allocated for the performance of work on government contracts. At the same time, the attackers transferred funds to the accounts of companies included in the Summa.
In addition, as the investigation initially reported, no later than 2010, the defendants, in order to illegally enrich themselves by stealing money and property from commercial organizations, created a criminal community in Moscow, which is involved in major financial fraud, the damage from which amounted to about 11 billion rubles.
The scams may be related to the implementation of work on the creation of an artificial land plot near Krestovsky Island in St. Petersburg, the preparation of a land plot for the construction of a football stadium in Kaliningrad, where the 2018 FIFA World Cup games were to be held, the reconstruction of the Kaliningrad airport Khrabrovo, the supply of electrical equipment for the substation “Vasileostrovskaya” in St. Petersburg and Neryungrinskaya GRES.
Magomed Magomedov claims that he is not legally related to the Summa group, which, according to him, belongs to his brother. The man claims that he has not communicated with Ziyavudin Magomedov for about six years. He, in turn, denies the charges and does not consider himself guilty.
