Deputy Head of Correctional Camp No. 4 in Tatarstan sentensed to 9 years for bribery
The court sentenced former Deputy Head of the General Correctional Camp No. 4 in Nizhnekamsk of the regional Federal Penitentiary Service Eduard Abzalov to 9 years of strict regime colony.
In addition, the former Federal Penitentiary Service employee will have to pay a fine of 5 million rubles and will not be able to assume leadership positions within 6 years.
According to the Republican Prosecutor's Office, Ablazov has been found guilty of Exceeding Official Powers (Art. 286 of the Russian Criminal Code) and systematic Bribe-Taking from prisoners, often on a large scale (Art. 290 and Art. 291.2 of the Russian Criminal Code).
March 2012, as reported by Kommersant, he permitted one prisoner to establish an illegal business of product sale in the colony in exchange for a bribe 280 thousand rubles. In a similar way, Abzalov received bribes totaling more than 2 million rubles from five more detainees in the period from June 2012 to May 2014. Moreover, in 2014, the former officer illegally spent 200 thousand rubles from the budget, allegedly on cattle breeding for the needs of the correctional institution.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
