Crimean prosecutor's office sent to court a case on illegal harvesting of Black Sea mussels worth more than 6 million rubles
The Crimean prosecutor’s office approved the indictment in a criminal case against the general director of one of the enterprises. He is accused of committing crimes under Part 3 of Art. 256 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal extraction of aquatic biological resources), part 5 of Art. 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (use of a knowingly false document).
According to the preliminary investigation body, the defendant, being the head of the enterprise, knowing that the period of the issued regime for the operation of the mussel and oyster farm had expired, did not suspend the operation of the enterprise, gave subordinate employees an illegal instruction to catch the Black Sea mussel. In total, the enterprise carried out illegal extraction of about 500 thousand copies of an aquatic biological resource worth more than 6 million rubles— reports the press service of the Crimean prosecutor’s office.
In order to avoid criminal liability, the man provided law enforcement agencies with fake documents on the acquisition of the Black Sea mussel.
With the approved indictment, the criminal case will be sent to the Yalta City Court for consideration on the merits. The prosecutor’s office filed a lawsuit to recover from the accused the damage caused by the crime.
