Ex-Head of Tomsk Interior Ministry comes under investigation
The FSB suspects Major-General Igor Mitrofanov of a bribery and a fraud.
Ex-chief of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Tomsk region Major-General Igor Mitrofanov became a defendant in two criminal cases. He is suspected of a bribery and a fraud, the Tomsk agency reports with reference to the press service of the FSB for Tomsk region.
The department clarified that the case was initiated under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of Russia (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale) and part 3 of Art. 159.2 of the Criminal Code of Russia (Swindling using official position).
According to the investigation, Mirofanov did not bring the local businessman to responsibility for illegal financial transactions for which he received a discount from the entrepreneur for the purchase of four cars in the amount of 1.7 million rubles ($27.300).
In addition, the FSB found that the Major-General provided false information to the pension fund, which resulted in an increased pension. Overpayment exceeded 180 thousand rubles. In June 2016, Mitrofanov was dismissed by the order of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
