In Primorye Rosselkhoznadzor's officials are arrested in suspicion of accepting bribes of 6 million rubles
Two defendants of the bribery case were taken into custody, another four are under house arrest.
Six members of Rosselkhoznadzor heads in Primorsky Region and Sakhalin Region were arrested on charges of bribery. The Vladivostok court decided to take into custody two defendants in the case and take four others under house arrest, according to the ID of the ICR in Primorye.
Names of suspects the police has not yet disclosed. However, according to RIA PrimaMedia, among those arrested, there was the Acting Head of Rosselkhoznadzor Julius Ivanov. The Portal Fight Corruption found Ivanov's shares of public joint-stock company Pacific Investment Group (PJSC TIGER), whose President is the ex-Governor of Primorye Sergey Darkin. On the site of PJSC TIGER it is still posted a document, certifying the affiliation of Ivanov on 30.06.2015. It should be noted at the time Ivanov has been an officer of the Rosselkhoznadzor, and thus having shares of the TIGER, he broke the law on civil service, prohibiting entrepreneurial activities and acquire securities (Article 17 of the Federal Law "On the Russian Federation Civil Service"). On the latest list of affiliated persons of the TIGER (on 31.03.2016) the surname of Ivanov was not longer mentioned.
