In the session held on
She repeated the words of witnesses who gave testimony the day before about the delinquency of „YUKOS“ and „Uganskneftegas“ before the budget.
Besides, Shevtsova said that the city took a loan from the bank „MENATEP“ in order to pay salary to the employees of state financed organizations, who had not received it for several months. They could not repay the loan since sufficient amounts of taxes did not reach the budget, including taxes that should have been paid by the companies „YUKOS“ and „Uganskneftegas“. A conflict arose and city administration applied to the tax authorities and prosecution office.
The witness told that the day before the murder a meeting at the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area governor’s place was conducted, the purpose of which was the settlement of the problems between „YUKOS“, „Uganskneftegas“, „MENATEP“ and the authorities of Nefteugansk. Petuhov was satisfied with the results of the meeting. The surname „Pichugin“ was not mentioned a single time, no proofs of his link with the murder of Petuhov were brought. Shevtsova, according to her own testimony, does not know any of the accused.
