The Delay in the Demolition of the Panorama Hotel in Vladimir Led to a Criminal Case

The prosecutor's office felt that the bailiffs had not taken exhaustive measures to enforce the court order

A criminal case was opened in Vladimir under the article “negligence”. This was the result of a prosecutor’s office check on the well-known and long-standing case with the demolition of the Panorama Hotel. The supervisory authority concluded that officials of divisions of FSSP of Russia in the Vladimir region improperly performed their duties.

During the inspection it was found that on September 27, 2017 by the appellate decision of the Vladimir Regional Court four citizens were obliged to dismantle the guest house “Panorama” by December 31 of the same year. This was not done.

On January 11, 2018, bailiffs of the Oktyabrsky district initiated relevant enforcement proceedings against the mentioned persons. On October 25, 2019, the documents were transferred for further execution to the Interdistrict Department of bailiffs for the execution of special enforcement proceedings.

“Realizing that the debtors themselves will not demolish the facility, as evidenced by repeatedly bringing them to administrative responsibility and setting a new deadline for execution of the court decision, which was also ignored by the debtors, the officials of the Oktyabrsky District Bailiff Office and the IOIP Interdistrict Bailiff Office in the period from April 2019 to April 2021 did not take exhaustive measures to ensure execution of the court decision,” – reported on the website of the Prosecutor’s Office.

Bailiffs were limited in their work to only going out to the object subject to demolition, bringing the debtors to administrative responsibility and establishing a ban on leaving the territory. All these measures did not contribute to the execution of the court act. This means that the bailiffs did not exercise all their powers.

Moreover, on July 18, 2019, the bailiff issued an illegal order to terminate the enforcement proceedings due to the impossibility of execution, which was subsequently cancelled by the head of the SPF.

According to the prosecutor’s office, the prolonged inaction on the enforcement proceedings hindered the implementation of the fundamental principles of the judicial system of the Russian Federation and caused a significant violation of the interests of society and the state. Debtors have been unhindered for a long time in operating an illegally erected object for commercial purposes, subject to demolition.

The progress of the investigation is controlled by the city prosecutor’s office.

Recall that in mid-December 2021, at the request of bailiffs, the Panorama Hotel was disconnected from gas supply, and on May 20, 2022 the unauthorized building was disconnected from water supply and drainage networks.
