Court orders freeze on over 95 mln rubles owned by Russian Post ex-chief

MOSCOW. Nov 2 (Interfax) - The Basmanny court of Moscow has imposed an asset freeze on more than 95 million rubles belonging to a former head of the Russian Post state enterprise, as part of an abuse of office inquiry, the court's spokeswoman Yunona Tsaryova told Interfax on Thursday.

"The court granted the investigators' request to impose an asset freeze on [Dmitry] Strashnov's funds currently on bank accounts, having banned him from conducting operations with said accounts and disposing of money therein within the established sum of losses of over 95 million rubles," Tsaryova said.

The asset freeze was executed back on August 31 and has already been appealed by Strashnov's lawyer, she said.

The appeal will be heard by the Moscow City Court on November 8.
