Ex-Head of Komi Tariff Service jailed for 4.5 years upon bribe-taking from Gaizer's OCG treasurer
Ilya Pervakov received 10 million rubles from former Deputy Chairman of the republican government Konstantin Romadanov. For this money, the Head of the Tariff Service established favorable tariffs for the companies controlled by Romadanov in the energy and housing and communal services sectors.
The Syktyvkar City Court found former Head of the regional Tariff Service Ilya Pervakov guilty in receiving a large bribe from Komi's former Deputy Prime Minister Konstantin Romadanov, who is a figurant of the Gaizer's case.
Ilya Pervakov was sentenced to 4.5 years in a strict-regime penal colony for bribes, the total amount of which reached more than 10 million rubles ($176.500). In addition, the accused was ordered to pay a fine of 10.2 million rubles ($177.000).
The ex-Head of the Tariff Service was arrested in the courtroom. The verdict has not entered into legal force yet and can be appealed.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, Ilya Pervakov was detained in March 2016. A criminal case was opened against him in accordance with part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking on an esprcially large scale). During the investigation, the defendant fully admitted the guilt and voluntarily transferred more than 5.8 million rubles ($102.315) to the federal budget.
According to the investigation, Pervakov and the referee of the Tariff Service Oleg Ryabinin received more than 10.2 million rubles of bribes from Konstantin Romadanov. Note that Romadanov is a figurant of the Gaizer's case; he confessed to investigators that he was a treasurer in the Komi ex-Governor's OCG. The official of the republican government handed Pervakov premiums totaling to 1.62 million rubles ($28.600), and Ryabinin - 1.998 million ($34.930). In addition, Romadanov helped Pervakov pay a debt of 5.8 million rubles for an elite apartment of 320 square meters worth 12 million ($211.700) in gratitude for the services, and also bought him a Lynx snowmobile. For this, the Tariff Service staff set favorable tariffs for the companies controlled by Romadanov in the energy and housing sector. Pervakov distributed the minimum tariff to competitors, and gave the highest to the companies of Romadanov.
Note that when sentencing Pervakov the court confiscated received as a bribe snowmobile and cash in the amount of 1.6 million rubles in the state revenue. In addition, the court retained the arrest imposed on Pervakov's apartment worth 12 million rubles "in order to ensure the verdict of the court in respect of the fine and confiscation of property."
A St. Petersburg company Renessans-Restavratsiya JSC, involved in a criminal case under Art. 169 (Swindling) of the Russian Criminal Code, has been selected to receive the contract. The case was initiated in September 2017 in connection with the failure to perform 4-million-ruble ($70 thousand) works to restore a XVI-century fortress in the Leningrad region.
