Detention was also Deputy head of the head of Republic Alexey Chernov, Deputy Chairman of the government of Komi Konstantin Romadanov and former Senator from the region Yevgeny Samoilov.
According to investigators, Gaiser and the other defendants created a criminal organization and committed a theft of budget funds and shares of profitable companies. Immediately after their detention the case featured two episodes of fraud — theft of a 50% stake in the hotel “avalon” in the city of Syktyvkar and the output shares of JSC “Poultry zelenetskaya”.
