Accused of corruption Chief of Khakassia Head's Administration dismissed
The order of dismissal was signed by the Head of the region.
Head of Khakassia Viktor Zimin dismissed Chief of the Administration Vladimir Byzov, who is accused of receiving a multi-million bribes.
The regional Head Media commented on the detention and arrest of his subordinate to media very composedly, but on the sidelines Zimin reacted more emotionally saying that it was "a disgrace to the whole country."
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, Byzov was assigned to the mission for the election campaigns of the President and the Head of the Republic of Khakassia in 2018. Now, the arrest of Vladimir Byzov, who was called the right hand of the Head of the Republic of Khakassia and the gray cardinal of the local Administration, casts a shadow on Viktor Zimin.
Recall, the Chief of the Khakassia Head's Administration is suspected of bribery and swindling committed as part of a criminal gang. The OCG, according to investigators, consisted of eight people (officials and businessmen). They are accused of embezzling 195 million rubles from the budget allocated for the procurement of medical equipment and medicines for a year from 1 December of 2015 to 27 December of 2016 in Abakan. Currently, Vladimir Byzov is in custody, the court sentenced him to detention for up to 28 February of 2017.
In addition, during the searches, it was found and seized more than 30 million rubles, as well as bonds and values "on an unspecified sum."
