Man involved in Gaizer case jailed for 7 years
The former Komi deputy prime minister will have to pay a fine.
Zamoskvoretsky court of Moscow has sentenced Konstantin Romadanov, the former deputy prime minister of the Komi Republic, and one of the defendants in the case against ex-Komi leader Vyacheslav Gaizer, to seven years in a strict-regime colony.
The defendant is entitled to jail credit calculated from the day of detention, September 20, 2015.
Besides, Romadanov was fined 170 million rubles and banned from holding state offices for five years.
To recap, the former Komi head Vyacheslav Gaizer and the other defendants are accused of being a part of a criminal community, fraud, money laundering, and bribery. Gaizer pled not guilty. According to the state prosecution, Alexander Zarubin created the criminal community. The former head of Renova is currently on the international wanted list.
Konstantin Romadanov, who was the gang treasurer, revealed in April that he had had a chart where he would write the amounts given to every gang member, but he could not recall how much money he had kept in the pooled cash fund, he said.
By approving the pension reform, Russian lawmakers have admitted the frailty of life. For instance, 62-year-old Viktor Ozerov, Senator from the Khabarovsk Krai, has suddenly got tired and decided to retire. ‘Authoritative’ businessman Aleksander Shishkin is eager to succeed him. A former Senator and member of the Committee for Defense and Security, Shishkin is concerned about his personal safety and immunity.
