FSB officers-solvers charged with swindling for 5 million rubles
FSB officers paid for one of the Turkish companies to avoid paying multimillion-ruble fine.
Current and former employees of the Moscow FSB Russia Karen Krajukhin and Vlad Novikov were indicted. They are charged with Swindling on an especially large scale (part 4, Art. 159 of the Criminal Code), according to TASS, citing the Krayukhin's lawyer Dagir Khasavov.
Earlier, the court arrested defendants in the case for two months. Suspects will remain in custody until 6 November.
According to the preliminary data, the Turkish construction company Esta Construction received a fine of 37,6 million rubles for the firing of illegal migrants. However, the company management wanted to resolve the issue for less money through the FSB workers Krayukhin and Novikov. For this work, it was transferred to 5 million rubles. But security officials have not fulfilled the promise.
The management of the company wrote against officers an appeal and on 6th September the FSB of the Russian Federation initiated a criminal case against them for swindling, and on September 14 suspects were detained during searches of their homes and personal offices.
Security officers pleaded not guilty.
It is a question of theft from the budget in 2012 in the amount of 22 million rubles ($365.770) in the framework of the state contract for the construction of water supply and sewage in Rostov Veliky.
