A spokesperson for state parks tells usthey cannot comment on pending litigation.For more on the crash and the lawsuit,you can go to one year later,the Super yacht seized in Fiji rthe invasion of Ukraine is still dockedin San Diego Bay off National C.the US Justice Department saysit’s owned by a Russian oligarc.A CBS8’s David Gofferson reportsattorneys representing the boatsowner are working to get it bac.It’s been almost a yearsince the Ahmadiyya, a348 foot Russian super yacht,sailed into San Diego Bay.After being seized in Fiji bythe US Department of Justice,the yacht remains in thecustody of the US government,docked in National city,even though a forfeiture courtcase still has not been filed.It has two baby grand pianos,one of which is hand painted,has a mosaic tiled pool.It has silk carpets,silk furnishings that need to be kept.In an air conditioned environme,the maintenance of the three$125 million vessel costs anestimated $1,000,000 per month,according to this petition filedrecently in the Fiji Supreme Co.Attorneys representing the claidowner of the Amadea are worriedthe yacht is not being properlymaintained by government contractors.Petitioner understands that theAmadea has been docked in SanDiego for nearly the past year.And maintained in a manner belowthe required maritime standards,which is causing significant risand depreciation, the petition reads.You might think you know youcan lock up a super yacht andwalk away and come back whenthe war in Ukraine is over.But in reality these thingstake a lot of maintenance.Journalist Stephanie Bakerwith Bloomberg News has doneextensive research on the amade.She spoke to me via zoom from London.It needs to be washed regularly on theoutside so it doesn’t have to undergoa multimillion dollar paint job.So these super yachts are sittigbasically in a hostile environment ofseawater and humidity that they will startdegrading unless they’re taken care of.After the Russian invasion of Ukraine,the Department of Justice formedthe Task Force Klepto capture toenforce economic sanctions agaita number of Russian oligarchs,including billionaire Solomon Kirimov,who the DOJ argues is the true rof the Ahmadiyya.

The petition,filed in the Fiji Supreme Court,argues the yachts owner is an unsanctionedRussian tycoon named Edward Kudenitov.And the seizure of the Ahmadiyya was illegal.the US government has decided togo after these playthings of theRussian elite to crack down onwhat they say is sanctions evas.And they’re they’re taking a tohline on this and they do wanteventually to be able to take teproceeds from these assets anduse them to help rebuild Ukrain.The petition also claims the maintenancecosts would have been paid by teyachts owner, not US taxpayers.If the Amadea had simply been detained inFiji and not seized by the United Statesout here live at Pepper Park inNational City, currently the USgovernment is paying to maintainthe amadea here in National Cit.That $1,000,000 figure is anestimate of what it typicallycost to maintain the vessel.But the DOJ does plan to sell teyacht at law at auction eventua,which would pay for the expensesincurred by the US government.And it is a beautifully hot Dav.It’s been nearly a yearsince that yacht was seized,and a lot of people have travel,traveled to the Bates just to check it out.It’s a a curiosity for people.But why has no forfeiture case nfiled in federal court at this point?Well, the DOJ did not respondto a request for comment.

One attorney told me typically aseizure case is filed within 90days after the asset is seized,but not in this case.This is a very complicated case,and prosecutors are going to haoprove who actually owns this ya,and that is going to take alot of international research.David Goffertson reportingfor us.
