Former Dagestani Health Minister charged with creation of organized crime group
According to the investigation, the former Minister created a criminal group to steal budget funds.
Former Minister of Health of Dagestan Tanka Ibrahimov is suspected of creating an organized criminal group to steal state funds, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the region states.
Earlier it was reported that by a court decision the detainee Ibrahimov was placed under house arrest on July 9. However, on the night of July 10, he was again detained, but within the investigation of a new episode. His former deputy, as well as experts from the Department of Public Procurement, were also detained, but they were not mentioned in the statement.
It is assumed that the group committed the theft of 44 million rubles ($704.700) overstating the cost of medical equipment and 71 million rubles ($1.1m) fulfilling obligations to supply medicines for the needs of medical institutions in Dagestan.
Recall that the mass detentions of high-ranking officials began in January this year. Then the special commission of the Prosecutor General's Office initiated an investigation in Dagestan. The First Vice-Premier of the republic, Ramadan Aliev, is also under arrest within the anti-corruption case.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
