Chelyabinsk region former ombudsman involved in criminal case
The employees of the Investigative Committee in the Chelyabinsk region brought a criminal case against Alexey Sevastyanov, the former head of the regional department of Rodina party and the former ombudsman.
According Znak.com, he is suspected of Abuse of Authority under part 1 of Art. 201 of the Criminal Code.
According to investigators, in 2016 the suspect made the decision to conclude civil contracts for the production and placement of advertising materials at the sum of over 5 million rubles alone, though he was aware of the absence of the required amount on the accounts of the regional department of the party. Besides, he violated regulations on the need to harmonize expenditures of more than 100 thousand rubles.
Soon Alexey Sevastyanov will face charges. The issue on choosing the preventive measures for him is being discussed, the press service of the Investigative Committee of Russia reported.
Sevastyanov himself has already commented on criminal case against him in the media, but he believes it to be "paid-for". The Former ombudsman supposes that the case is related to his activity in the last few months and work on protecting the rights of residents of boarding houses.
The conflict arose after Rodina party had refused to pay for the outdoor advertising ordered when it was Human Rights Commissioner Alexey Sevastyanov who headed the regional department in the Chelyabinsk region.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
