Pravo.ru - The case of Marina Dunyushina is presently being reviewed by the Dorogomilovsky District Court of Moscow. The former head of Khimki Land Committee is accused of high-value fraud. Investigators believe that the former official illegally transferred a 20-hectare land lot in Khimki to IKEA. One piece of evidence is the fact that the relevant ruling of Khimki city administration in 1993 makes mention of the Land Code of the Russian Federation. This Code was only adopted in 2001, while in 1993 the Land Code of RSFSR was still in force. According to the investigation, the ruling was issued retroactively or simply falsified. The experts however don’t take these findings for granted; searching in databases demonstrates similar confusions with naming in both government rulings and High Court documents. Roman Belanov, a lawyer with Khrenov&Partners, shares his opinion.
