Kemerovo region: policeman accused of misappropriating employees’ bonuses
A senior police officer has embezzled more than 1.2 million rubles.
The Deputy CEO of the MIA Center of Economic and Service Provision (CESP) Federal Government Institution is suspected of embezzling over 1.2 million rubles meant for the institution’s employees.
According to investigators, the 45-year-old deputy CEO, whose name has been withheld, in December 2014 instructed his subordinates to submit applications for a financial support they were supposed to get at the end of the year. Then he ordered that the applications served as basis for a payroll issue, which the police officer then used to receive over 1.2 million rubles in a bank. The senior MIA official used the money for his own purposes.
In addition, in November 2016 the deputy CEO failed to return 45 thousand rubles the institution had previously allocated for his business trip. When he was at an advanced training in another region, the suspect rented an apartment, waiving his right for a free hostel accommodation.
Federal Security officers in the Kemerovo region exposed the policeman’s scams.
The 45-year-old deputy CEO of the MIA CESP in the Kemerovo region has been charged under part 4 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code (Misappropriation or Embezzlement), part 1 of Art. 285 of the Criminal Code (Abuse of Official Powers).
The accused has been removed from office and taken into custody.
The founder and president of the Izhevsk football club Gazovik-Gazprom, known today as Zenit-Izhevsk, and the oldest professional football player in Russia has been detained for 48 hours, until the lawyers provide documents confirming that the accused cannot be kept in a pre-trial detention center on medical grounds.
