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.
In less than three years, Vadim Potomsky, Governor of the Orel Region, became involved into so many scandals that rumors about his upcoming dismissal circulate persistently. Furthermore, the region under his rule has made a mark during the live teleconference with the President: a complaint made by Orel resident Klavdia Stavtseva became one of the most high-profile episodes of the broadcast. What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
