Former Vice-Governor of Primorye got suspended term for abuse of authority
Nevertheless, Sergey Sidorenko believes that the verdict is too strict and intends to appeal it.
The former Vice-Governor of the Primorsky region, Sergey Sidorenko, was sentenced to 2.5 years probation for Exceeding Official Powers (part 2 of Article 286 of the Criminal Code). In addition, the Frunzensky District Court of Vladivostok deprived Sidorenko of the right to hold positions in the civil service for two years.
Recall, a criminal case against Sergey Sidorenko was initiated in December 2016. According to the investigation, as Vice-Governor, Sidorenko ordered to introduce the regime of emergencies in Artemovsky urban district after the typhoon Lionrok in 2016. As a result the agricultural enterprises, in which relatives of the official worked too, began to claim compensation. It is noted that they did not receive money.
Meanwhile, Sergey Sidorenko does not agree with the court's decision and intends to appeal it.
"In the process of getting acquainted with the materials of the criminal case, I realized that the introduction of the emergency regime was not part of my authority, the words of the former official the IA PrimaMedia quoted. - But please take into account that I acted in the interests of all agricultural enterprises of the region, and not only those belonging to my relatives."
Recall, under investigation there are two more vice-governors. In May 2016 Oleg Yezhov was detained.
