Chief of department in hospital of Moscow area extorted bribes from relatives of patients
The investigation assumes that the man was receiving money during two years.
In Shatura situated near Moscow the chief of department of hospital is detained on suspicion of receiving several bribes from relatives of patients. Five criminal cases were initiated against the man under Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking).
According to the investigators, the chief of department conducted criminal activity from December 29, 2015 to January 17, 2017. He demanded money for hospitalization and the subsequent hospitalization of patients, including those who were not locals.
By preliminary estimate, the physician received not less than 380 thousand rubles ($6.600) for the specified period. At the same time the suspect demanded relatives to transfer to him monthly 75% of pension of patients.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
