The criminal case has been “actively” investigated for 17 years
Our client, while the realization of the right of ownership, faced the fact that his apartment was seized in 2004 as part of the pre-trial investigation in a criminal case in order to ensure the protection of a disputed property (according to the investigation). For the entire time of the pre-trial investigation 17 years, the question of challenging the ownership of this apartment has never been raised.
The case is interesting in that the judicial practice of resolving such issues has certain difficulties, but nothing can interfere with our lawyers.
In the interests of the client, our lawyer filed a petition to the investigating judge for canceling the seizure of the apartment, imposed by the decision of the interrogating officer.
P.S. The prosecutor’s speech at the court session was enchanting: “Let the seizure of the apartment remain! In general, we are shocked by the entire prosecutor’s office that such a case exists and is being processed.”
Fortunately, common sense prevailed over the “professional” position of the prosecutor’s office and the judge, after reviewing the materials of the criminal case, came to the conclusion that the arguments presented by our lawyer were quite reasonable, and granted our petition.
