Altai region: Former Road Construction and Repair Department head convicted of bribe-taking
Head of the Road Construction and Repair Department lied to Altaiavtodor.
Former Head of the Road Construction and Repair Department Sergey Antipov faced trial. He had been caught taking a bribe.
Court and investigators determined that an entrepreneur asked the Smolensky Road Construction & Repair Department Head to asphalt a road section next to Altaiavtodor shop and office, according to the Russian Investigative Committee Altai Krai Office of Investigations’ website. Sergey Antipov illegally asked for 100,000 rubles for the work. The entrepreneur accepted the terms.
This gave the Department a nominal reason to take the money from Altaiavtodor. The Company received it from the Krai budget as a compensation for expenses the Department should have incurred when fixing the road. In reality, the Department did not incur such expenses.
Court convicted the defendant of taking a bribe. He was given a 3.5 year suspended sentence and fined for 4 million rubles.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
