The Khabarovsk Central District Court changed the measure of restraint to Vasily Shikhalev, former deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk Krai government, who is involved in the criminal case of embezzlement in the forest industry. He was released from detention and placed under house arrest.

As EastRussia was informed in court, the preventive measure was changed at the request of the investigator. The ex-deputy chairman has already been released under house arrest.

In March of this year, Vasily Shikhalev became a defendant in the criminal case abuse of authority and fraud on a large scale. According to investigators, he helped the company Asia Forest, which, despite the failure to fulfill its obligations to develop the woodworking industry in the Sunny District, received from the federal budget more than one billion rubles subsidies. The company also illegally cut down the forest for more than nine million rubles.

In April, the Khabarovsk Regional Court did not satisfy the appeal of the former deputy chairman and left him under arrest until 17 May.
