64-million-ruble debt of convicted Perm HCS deputy head acquited
Former Deputy Head of the Housing and Communal Services Department of Perm administration Andrey Berezin has been exempt from serving punishment in connection with a serious illness.
This was reported in the Perm Regional Court at a court session reviewing another complaint filed by the former official's lawyer.
As Kommersant reports, according to Deputy Prosecutor of the Perm region Vitaly Ilyenkov, Berezin was freed from punishment as early as in November 2016. In January, the court decision entered into force.
Andrey Berezin used to oversee the distribution of budget funds for capital repairs of apartment buildings in the Housing and Communal Services Department of Perm (HCS) for a long time.
In 2013, the ex-official of Perm administration for HCS became involved in the case of bribe-taking in the amount of 800 thousand rubles. He had received the money from the founder of Stroydinas LLC Dmitry Burilov for signing a 13-million contract for equity financing of capital repairs of three ZhSK-6 houses condominiums. In July 2014, Berezin was sentenced to a fine of 64 million rubles and disqualified from holding official positions for three years.
The former official has yet to pay the fine. According to his lawyer Isaak Groysberg, it is due to a serious illness, as well as lack of funds and a job. The Federal Bailiff Service has seized Berezin's property, including Toyota Land Cruiser 150 (Prado), as compensation for the damage.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
