Ivanovo official prosecuted for forgery
The ICR in the Ivanovo region has initiated a criminal case against the former Head of the City Administration Office of Architecture and Urban Planning.
The person in question is charged with Forgery by an Official (part 1 of Art. 292 of the Russian Criminal Code).
According to investigators, November 18, 2014, the Head of the Ivanovo City Administration Office of Architecture and Urban Planning issued the permit for commissioning of an unfinished apartment building to a construction company. He was aware that the house was not completed and the fact that the developer lacked some necessary conclusions from the Regional Service of State Construction Supervision concerning the built house's compliance with the technical regulations. Moreover, the developer did not have other regulatory legal acts and project documents available. The officer ignored the existing shortcomings and granted to the developer the permitting documents for commissioning of the building, which contained false information.
The criminal case against him has been initiated according to data collected by experts of the Federal Security Service Office for the Ivanovo region. The experts are currently establishing all the circumstances of the incident; the criminal investigation is under way.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
