The property of a former Siberian official is turned into state revenue.
Ilgiz Garifullin, the former deputy head of the Rosrezerv's department for the Siberian Federal District, estimated at 200 million rubles, received state revenue. The state received a significant amount in rubles and currency, expensive real estate, funds from the sale of a car fleet of prestigious foreign cars, and some watches from the ex-official’s collection went to the Gokhran of Russia. Ilgiz Garifullin himself is serving a 13-year sentence in penal colony No. 18 of Novosibirsk.

According to the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, the confiscation of property of the former deputy head of the Siberian department of Rosrezerv Ilgiz Garifullin has been completed. In total, she took more than three years. In November 2016, the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation sent a lawsuit to the Zaeltsovsky District Court of Novosibirsk, in which he demanded that the property of the ex-official who did not provide evidence of the legality of his origin be turned into state revenue. This is required by the law “On monitoring the conformity of expenses of civil servants to their income”.

In March 2017, the court granted the prosecutor's request. The list of property that went to the state took several pages. It includes expensive real estate objects, cash in rubles and currency seized in bank cells, a collection of watches (Rolex, Breguet, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Ulysse Nardin) and a whole fleet of prestigious cars: in addition to the already mentioned cars, this is Range Rover Sport, Toyota Land Cruiser and Porsche Cayenne. The total amount seized exceeded 200 million rubles.

The defense appealed against the decision. The court of appeal of the Novosibirsk Regional Court even returned to the ex-official and his relatives a substantial part of the property with which they had already managed to say goodbye. Then it was the turn of the prosecutor to file a complaint. The trial took about a year and a half, and as a result, the court returned to the original decision on the complete confiscation.

As Kommersant learned, first of all, the withdrawn money was received in the state budget. Their amount in ruble equivalent amounted to about 130 million rubles.
Then the property of the former official was re-registered to the state with a total value of over 50 million rubles. From the sale of watches and the fleet of the former deputy head of the Siberian Federal Reserve, it was possible to gain about 20 million rubles. Some copies of the watch collection made of precious metals were sent to the Gokhran of Russia. The last to leave the auction was the Porsche Cayenne, which, according to the documents, was owned by the wife of Garifullin.

It should be noted that in parallel with the civil court on confiscation of property, a criminal case of bribes worth more than 100 million rubles was investigated against the ex-official. It was instituted on the basis of materials from the Novosibirsk FSB Directorate that entered the Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia. The court sentenced Garifullin to 13 years in prison and a fine of 100 million rubles. According to Kommersant’s sources, he is serving a sentence in IK-18 in Novosibirsk’s strict regime.
