Former chief bailiff of Ingushetia accused of swindling
The civil servant unreasonably received $ 150,000 from the budget for the purchase of a house.
The Ingushetia Prosecutor's Office approved the indictment against the former chief bailiff of the republic, Musa Ozdoev, 53, who got an apartment and a house worth 10 million rubles ($ 150,000) at the public expense. The investigation accused Ozdoev of swindling (part 4 of Article 159.2 CCRF). The republican Prosecutor's Office supervises the investigation into the case, the press service of the supervisory body reports.
In 2002, Ozdoyev received an apartment of 117.93 sq.m. in Magas from the local authorities for free. In 2010, the civil servant applied for a lump-sum subsidy for the purchase of residential premises allocated in cases of absence of private housing at the place of public service. The maximum amount of such assistance was about 2 million rubles ($ 30,000).
Ozdoev concealed the possession of a three-room apartment and received 10 million rubles for the purchase of a mansion.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
