Court to consider case of Komi Federal Penitentiary Service ex-Head
The case of Head of the Federal Penitentiary Service in the Komi Republic Alexander Protopopov, his deputy Valery Ivanov, former Head of a penal colony №34 Roman Korzhov and businessman Ramal Jabbarli will be removed to the court, the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation said.
The criminal case accused of stealing someone else's property, and in respect of Protopopov – bribe-taking, the court will consider in Syktyvkar.
According to investigators, Protopopov, acting in collusion with former Deputy Head Valery Ivanov and Head of the prison colony №34 Roman Korzhov, illegally dismantled and removed more than 7000 concrete slabs covering the road with a total length of 50 km in the Vozhskaya village of the Udorsky region from June 2014 to August 2015.
The GP said that the road, which the members of the criminal scheme dismantled, was in federal ownership.
The criminal act was committed with the complicity of the representative of LLC Estet Ramal Jabbarli. As a result of these actions suspects caused damage to the budget in the amount of not less than 6 million rubles.
It is worth noting that Protopopov did not plead guilty, Ivanov and Korzhov admitted their guilt partly. Ramal Jabbarli pleaded guilty in full.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
