Miass ex-mayor accused of office abuse attends City Duma meeting
Gennady Vaskov's home arrest is over.
The former mayor of Miass, Gennady Vaskov, accused of abuse of office, has attended a meeting of the City Duma, which agitated the deputies, reports Znak.com.
According to eyewitnesses, the former official and his spouse were "just sitting there and watching."
Vaskov’s friends told the publication that his house arrest is over. Currently, he is not allowed to leave the city, although he may go out, work and attend official events.
Gennady Vaskov left the post of mayor of the Miass urban district after a conflict with the deputy assembly. He was charged with abuse of office when he purchased the Umka kindergarten with a regional grant. The investigation believes that the value of the facility was overly high. Vaskov insisted that the decision on the transaction was based on an appraiser's opinion. The deal was also verified by the regional chamber of commerce. The investigation has been going on for over a year.
The miraculous landing of an Airbus A321 belonging to Ural Airlines on a cornfield raised a number of questions in relation to waste landfills in the metropolitan area. The airbus struck a flock of seagulls because an illegal dump site was established not far from Zhukovsky International Airport. The CrimeRussia performed its own inquest to uncover ties between the emergency landing of the A321 and Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow Region. It turned out that dump sites, seagulls, officials of Ramenskoe, and detained thief-in-law Shishkan are links of the same chain that cannot be broken even by the law enforcement authorities. After the aerial incident, a criminal case was instituted under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of the rules for traffic safety and operation of the railway, air, sea and inland water transportation systems). But the question is: why no criminal proceedings were launched in relation to the corruption and establishment of illegal landfills?
