Court jailed Kotlovka Administration ex-Head for 3 years
In addition, a former official will pay off a fine of almost five million rubles ($89.000).
The Zyuzinsky District Court sentenced former Deputy Head of the Kotlovka district Administration for housing and communal services Igor Grebnev, 48, to three years of imprisonment. The press service of the Prosecutor General's Office reported that.
"The court issued a guilty verdict in the criminal case under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale) in respect of I.Grebnev. He was sentenced to three years in a strict-security colony with a fine of four million 740 thousand rubles," the message states.
In addition, the official was deprived of the right to hold positions in public authorities for a period of 10 years.
According to the investigation, Grebnev decided to illegally enrich himself at the expense of commercial organizations that are in contractual relations with the state public institution IS of the Kotlovka district and DEZ of the Kotlovka district OJSC. In December 2013, he proposed the general director of the two firms to transfer to him 7% of the sums received by these legal entities on a monthly basis. In the period from January to March 2014 Grebnev received 1-million-ruble bribe ($17.800).
Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg has repaid loans in the amount of $1 billion taken from the Western banks. Earlier, his Renova Group had received state support from Promsvyazbank. Renova representatives say they have repaid the loan with the company’s own funds.
Federation Council member Vadim Nikolaev whose son had gotten into a fight strongly suggested that the other kids and their parents dropped beating charges, making it clear that he had already been to prosecutors and the ICR and “gotten it all dealt with.”
The businessman agreed to exchange the assets of Liwet Holding, through which Vekselberg’s company owned the shares of high-tech European concerns, for the assets of his partners Evgeny Olkhovik and Vladimir Kremer.
