Former head of Tambov’s Federal Tax Service convicted of taking bribes put on wanted list
Lyubov Krugova sentenced to serve a total of nine years’ imprisonment escaped before she was transferred to correctional institutions. Until her conviction became enforceable, she was under house arrest.
According to Kommersant Daily, former head of Department of Federal Tax Service in Tambov Oblast Lyubov Krugova who is convicted of taking bribes is now put on the wanted list for a second time. Regional office of the Federal Penal Correction Service explained that Krugova who was under house arrest until her conviction became enforceable managed to escape from the police before she was transferred to correctional institutions.
In April, 2018, Morshansky Court in Tambov Oblast sentenced Krugova to imprisonment and a fine of 25 million rubles ($367.7 thousand) with the seizure of her car and real estate. She was found guilty of taking bribes from executives of several companies over the 2006 to 2013 period in exchange for protection (items 1, 2, 4, 6 of article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
Investigators believe that the total cost of what Krugova received from businessmen is 14 million rubles ($205.8 thousand). The criminal case was opened in mid-January, 2015. Her assets and money were seized during the investigation. As for Krugova, she pleaded not guilty both during the preliminary investigation and in court.
“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.
