Former military commissar of Togliatti received 9 years of strict regime for bribe
Former military commissioner of Togliatti Igor Popov is sentenced to 9 years of maximum security penal colony and a penalty in the amount of 100 million rubles. Such measure of punishment to the defendant was chosen by the Avtozavodsky Regional Court of Togliatti, which found Popov guilty of Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale (part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
Popov does not admit his guilt claiming that the bribe (1.6 million rubles) was planted to him.
As Kommersant reports, the military commissar's intermediary in Bribe-Taking (part 4 of Art. 291.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) Nikolay Ksenafontov found himself completely guilty. The court considered it and sentenced him to 4 years in prison of strict regime.
According to data of the investigation, Popov, holding a position of military commissar of Togliatti in 2015, threatening with dismissal, demanded from the subordinate a bribe in the amount of 10 million rubles for general protection and connivance on service. Subsequently the parties agreed on the amount of 2 million rubles. Ksenafontov handed sums in the amount of 400 thousand rubles to the military commissioner from the briber in the summer of 2015 twice.
The ICR is checking into former Head of the Moscow Bureau of Forensic Expertise Evgeny Kildyushov and his deputy Oksana Doronina for using gray schemes of procurement and payment of salaries to ‘ghost employees’. Last week, the bureau was searched by the FSB.
