Russia's En+ Group said it is pleased with the fact that Montenegro has released from custody the financial director of aluminium firm KAP, Russian citizen Dmitry Potroubatch, news agency Mina-Business reported on July 18.
Potroubatch was released on July 17 after En+ paid a EUR 100,000 bail. He was arrested on July 11 over suspicions he is responsible for an electricity theft worth EUR 9.6mn made for the needs of KAP from the European interconnectors earlier this year.
En+ Group, which owns a minority stake in KAP and used to be in charge of its management before the firm entered insolvency on July 8, told Mina-Business they believes the charges against Potroubatch are completely unfounded.
Potroubatch was due to spend 30 days in the arrest but the basic court in Podgorica approved En+ Group's appeal, letting him free on the bail.
