Assessed the future of the arrested area of Nevzorov
The land plot of journalist Alexander Nevzorov, previously arrested by the Basmanny Court of Moscow (included by the Russian Ministry of Justice in the register of foreign media agents) can be sold at auction. Lawyer Dmitry Romanenko told Izvestia about this.
“If penalties, maybe fines, appear in the verdict, then recovery can be levied on the seized property, that is, it will be sold at auction, and the funds received will be turned in favor of the state,” the specialist said, assessing the future of the arrested area.
According to the lawyer, if the amount of fines that can be awarded to Nevzorov is less than the value of the property, the journalist will be able to receive the rest of the funds. Otherwise, the requirements of the court will not be fully satisfied.
On June 10, it became known that the Basmanny Court of Moscow had arrested Nevzorov’s plot on the coast of the Gulf of Finland in St. Petersburg. It was noted that the cost of the site is almost eight million rubles. After that, the court reported that the property was seized as part of a criminal case on discrediting the Armed Forces of Russia (RF Armed Forces).
In early May, the court arrested Nevzorov in absentia for spreading fake news about the RF Armed Forces. Two days before, the Interior Ministry put the journalist on the wanted list. In April, Nevzorov was included in the register of foreign media agents.
In March, the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case against Nevzorov for spreading fake news about the actions of the RF Armed Forces. Shortly thereafter, it became known that the journalist had left Russia.
