Chairwoman of Magadan Chamber of Control and Accounts to be tried for unauthorized increase of salary by 1 mln rubles
The trial of chairwoman of Severo-Evensky Chamber of Control and Accounts begins in Magadan.
The woman is charged with swindling and embezzlement of budget funds.
A criminal case has been initiated against the official under part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling committed by a person through his official position, as well as on a large scale). It has been investigated by officers of the Department for Investigation of Particularly Important Cases under the ICR Investigative Committee in the Magadan Region.
During the investigation, experts found the following: in the period from 2014 to 2015, the official voluntarily set herself a monthly supplement of 65 thousand rubles for combining the vacant position of Inspector of the Chamber of Control and Accounts. By doing this, she violated the federal legislation and regulatory legal acts of the Severo-Evensky municipality representative body. In addition, her fraudulent actions caused damage to the municipal budget in the amount of 1 million rubles.
The crime committed by the official was revealed during one of the Prosecutor’s investigations. At the moment, the investigating authorities have gathered enough evidence proving the guilt of the suspect. In this regard, a criminal case with the confirmation of the indictment has been referred to the court for further consideration on the merits.
It should be noted that in accordance with part 4 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code, under which the investigation of this criminal case was carried out, the penalty is imprisonment for up to 10 years and a fine up to 1 million rubles.
In addition, after the incident, law enforcement bodies put forward the requirement to eliminate all the causes and conditions that contributed to the commission of the crime to the Head of the Severo-Evensky urban district.
In less than three years, Vadim Potomsky, Governor of the Orel Region, became involved into so many scandals that rumors about his upcoming dismissal circulate persistently. Furthermore, the region under his rule has made a mark during the live teleconference with the President: a complaint made by Orel resident Klavdia Stavtseva became one of the most high-profile episodes of the broadcast. What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
