Mayor of Orenburg and his deputy detained for a bribe
The investigation believes that the mayor and his subordinate received in 600 thousand rubles ($8800) from a local entrepreneur.
The head of Orenburg, Yevgeny Arapov, was detained after the searches in his office on suspicion of receiving a bribe. This is reported by the press service of the ICR.
It is specified that during the operational activities, at the mayor’s 4 million 200 thousand rubles ($62000) were found.
According to the investigation, Arapov, together with his deputy Gennady Borisov, in May this year, received a bribe of 600 thousand rubles from a CEO of a commercial organization engaged in the construction sector. In return, the officials promised to provide the businessman with a common patronage.
According to the ICR, Borisov personally received the bribes but 400 thousand rubles ($5900) from this amount were intended for Arapov.
Both civil servants have now become involved in the criminal case under clauses “a” and “c” of part 5 of Article 290 CCRF (bribe-taking on a large scale by a group of individuals). Borisov, as reported in the ICR, is in custody.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
