Crimea ex-Deputy Prime Minister jailed on charges of multimillion-ruble bribery
The ex-official promised a contract with the Administration for a construction company.
The Kievsky District Court of Simferopol jailed Oleg Kazurin, the former Deputy Chairman of Crimea’s Council of Ministers. The ex-official got a two-month imprisonment.
As the CrimeRussia reported previously, the suspect, who was detained yesterday, is accused of a large-scale Bribe-Taking (part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code).
According to investigators, the high-ranking official promised to assist a construction firm in obtaining a contract with the Crimean administration for housing construction in the republic. The company passed a part of the agreed 27 million rubles ($462.831) to the Deputy Prime Minister through an intermediary between August and December 2016. The intermediary, whose name the Investigative Committee chose not to disclose, has been sentenced to travel restrictions. The accomplice is accused under Art. 291.1 of the Criminal Code (Mediation in a Large-Scale Bribery).
Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Kazurin was sacked on December 29. Then Crimea’s Head Sergey Aksenov explained the dismissal by official’s constant underperformance. Kazurin had been on the post for less than a year.
