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.
On September 21, kingpin Vladimir Vagin, aka Vagon, hanged himself. Two years earlier another thief in law Max Pioner also committed suicide. Vagon's lawyer does not believe in the version of suicide and intends to apply for a forensic medical examination.
