Tax Evasion Results in Criminal Case in Yekaterinburg

January 22, 2013. Verkh-Isetsky division of Russia’s Federal Service of Court Officers Sverdlovsk Region Department instituted criminal proceedings against a sole trader, with charges based on Article 177 of Russia’s Criminal Code, Russia’s Federal Service of Court Officers Sverdlovsk Region Department’s press service reports.

The court actually pronounced its ruling as early as 2010, but the accused Yekaterinburg dweller never complied with it, so criminal action was taken. Under the ruling, the sole trader had to pay a bank 4,280,851.24 RUR (debt plus legal fees).

The court officer of Verkh-Isetsky division of Russia’s Federal Service of Court Officers Sverdlovsk Region Department issued numerous warrants informing the defendant of criminal liability for not implementing the court’s ruling. Nevertheless, even thought the debtor knew about this large-scale debt, he did nothing to pay it off. The sole trader had some stable income, which was proved by the evidence supplied for the case: a very tidy bit was transferred into his newly opened account, but the debtor never bothered to pay his creditors. So, criminal action was taken.
