House as a bribe
For the bribe, the engineer turned a blind eye to the violations in the construction of the perinatal center.
The engineer of the department of capital construction in the Stavropol region was accused of taking bribes in the form of house from a construction company. For such a generous 'gift' the official promised not to report on the violations disclosed during the construction of the perinatal center by the contractor.
According to the investigation, in February 2015 the Ministry of Construction and Architecture in the Stavropol Territory concluded a contract with the company for contract work in the perinatal center. The defendant controlled the construction site, and, having identified violations, demanded a bribe in the form of property (it was not specified) for non-disclosure and the construction of the house for her. Having received the desired, the official signed acts on the acceptance of the work performed and concealed the violations discovered by her. The Investigative Committee estimated the bribe received in excess of 1.1 million rubles ($19.600).
The engineer is charged part 6 of Art. 290 (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale) and part 1 of Art. 174.1 of the Criminal Code (Legalization Of Property Acquired as a Result of Committing a Crime). The criminal case has already been submitted to the court for examination on the merits.
The murder of businessman Mikhail Lanin in 2011 was an echo of a criminal case against a gang of fixers selling supreme posts in governmental structures and state companies of the Russian Federation for millions of euros. The fixers had acted straightforwardly: the purchasers of much-desired positions were promptly killed. Last week, a Chechnya native, who had shot Mikhail Lanin dead, was convicted to 20 years behind bars by the Paris Court. One of his accomplices was acquitted, while another one – sentenced to a conditional term. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why do the orchestrator of this murder Valid Lurakhmaev (Validol) and its instigator Akhmad Khamidov still remain at liberty.
