Dagestan official caught on $17.400 bribe
For the bribe, a civil servant promised one of the locals to illegally issue a land plot of 10 hectares.
In Dagestan, when receiving a bribe of 1 million rubles ($17.400), the head of the municipal administration and land relations of the Magaramkent district was detained.
According to investigators, in March this year the civil servant promised to help one of the local residents illegally register a 10 hectare land plot for farming. For his services, the corrupt official asked for 1.8 million rubles ($31.400). However, the local resident decided to inform the law enforcement officers about the criminal deal. So, already under the close attention of the employees of the regional FSB, the bribe-giver transferred a part of the previously agreed bribe in the amount of 1 million rubles to a high-ranking official. The corrupt official was caught red-handed by the law enforcement officers.
On this fact, the investigating authorities opened a criminal case under part 2 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale).
Comments from the representatives of the Magaramkent district administration regarding the initiation of criminal proceedings have not yet been received. The name of the suspect was not disclosed, however according to the site of the regional administration, since 2014 the department of land relations is headed by Basir Isabekov.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
