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.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
