Sakhalin bailiffs seize private property for electricity debts

Sakhalin bailiffs have for the first time ever seized private property for electricity debts.

The seized TV-set and music box will be returned if the debt is paid within ten days, the Sakhalinenergo press service said. Otherwise, the seized property will be sold and the profits will be transferred in payment of the debt.

Over 17,000 residents of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk area are bad debtors of the electricity company. Their debts vary from 7,000 to 15,000 rubles. The debtors explain their situation with low incomes, but this is not confirmed officially. Some debtors have been disconnected from the power network, but they are taking electricity again without permission.

The total electricity debt of Sakhalin residents exceeds 130 million rubles. About 2,000 lawsuits have been filed at local courts for the collection of ten million rubles. Another 5,000 Sakhalin residents have been notified about possible prosecution.
