Military Prosecutor's Office prevents $8.6mln embezzlement
In Moscow, the Military Prosecutor's Office has managed to prevent an embezzlement of 5 billion rubles ($8.6 million) in the construction of houses for servicemen.
According to the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office, an embezzlement of 5 billion rubles by construction companies engaged in the construction of houses for the military has been prevented.
Moscow City Military Prosecutor Vladislav Prikhodchenko also said that the department managed to resolve issues related to the commissioning of long-term construction. This included the houses of Bolshaya Ochakovskaya and Sinyavinskaya Street.
In addition, the agency added that since the beginning of this year, the Military Prosecutor's Office has managed to eliminate about 300 different violations of the law. Moreover, law enforcement officers instituted about 50 administrative cases and two criminal cases. All of them relate to the non-compliance with both deadlines and the quality of work performed, as well as to involving subcontractors who are unable to fulfill the obligations stipulated in the concluded contracts.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
