Head of Dagestan MIA Organized Crime Investigation Division arrested for alleged fraud
Police Colonel Khaybula Ibnukhadzharov is suspected of forging financial documents and fraudulent actions aimed at getting money for work-related travel.
The Dagestan MIA Department of Internal Affairs and the FSB Directorate in Dagestan have arrested Khaybula Ibnukhadzharov, the head of the Dagestan MIA Organized Crime Investigation Division, according to TASS.
The police colonel is suspected of forging financial documents and fraudulent actions aimed at getting money for work-related travel that did not actually take place. Ibnukhadzharov was in cahoots with the Ministry’s Financial Service, according to preliminary data. A preliminary investigation has been launched.
There is no information on the website of the MIA Directorate in Dagestan regarding the arrest. However, there is information regarding the MIA and FSB having discovered financial crimes committed by two MIA employees. In 2016, they filed forged documents and got reimbursed for work travel that did not actually take place.
The two employees have already faced legal repercussions, according to the website. The MIA Administration launched an internal inspection and is trying to decide whether to give the offenders a bad conduct discharge.
To recall, a series of internal inspections of Dagestan law enforcement agencies had been announced the day before the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office and ICR began its ‘purging’ that resulted in a number of ministers and high-ranking officials being arrested. More than 70 criminal and 450 administrative investigations have been launched since.
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
