Ulyukayev's fine withdrawn from bank account

MOSCOW. Dec 10 (Interfax) - Moscow bailiffs have withdrawn the total amount of the fine imposed on former Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev, who is serving an eight-year prison term for corruption, from his bank account.

"The money has arrived from Ulyukayev's Sberbank account to the deposit account used by the bailiffs," Viktoria Burkovskaya, lawyer for Ulyukayev, told Interfax.

The money will be transferred as revenue to the state within the next few days and enforcement proceedings will then be closed, she said.

On October 31, Moscow's Zamoskvoretsky District Court granted the request of the Moscow branch of the Federal Bailiff Service to lift the seizure of Ulyukayev's Sberbank account so that bailiffs could get access to it and withdraw the 130,433,400 rubles that Ulyukayev had been ordered to pay.
