Director of children’s rehabilitation center in Altai will be prosecuted for bribery
Investigation Department of the Russian IC in the Altai Region completed the investigation on bribery against the former director of the regional Zhuravliki rehabilitation center for children and adolescents with disabilities Sergei Pribytkov.
The case materials are based on the FSB work.
The Head of the organization, helping children and adolescents with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and autism, will be tried for accepting a bribe in amount of 500 thousand rubles for the concluding a lucrative contract with a trading company without a competition. The bribe was passed in several pieces.
Earlier this year, the regional branch of the IC has opened a criminal case on fraud with the money obtained by the center two years ago as part of the regional program Children of the Altai. The investigation has evidence that the funds, which were planned for buying equipment for the center, were stolen.
The supplier company Novy Mir received about 3 million rubles from the center Zhuravliki in full settlement of the equipment, its obligations under the contracts it did not fulfill, and part of the equipment that was supplied to the center had significant defects.
In April, by a court decision Pribytkov was arrested. After being signed the indictment by the Prosecutor's Office, his case will soon be submitted to the court.
During the arrest of businessman Valery Pshenichny, the operatives have made it clear that he won’t return home. An economic criminal case reported to the authorities by the businessman has led to his terrible death in the pretrial detention facility under circumstances raising numerous questions. Was he really electrocuted, cut with a knife, raped, his spine fractured, strangled, and killed? The Federal Penitentiary Service denies such allegations and claims that “He has done everything himself”. The CrimeRussia has performed its own inquest into the death of Valery Pshenichny.
Alexey Kudrin, the head of the Center for Strategic Research, said the ban on Telegram messenger jeopardizes the country’s transition to digital economy. The decision was ill-conceived, he said, and those who made it did not think it through.
