New more cases were initiated against former Head of Federal Migration Service in Ingushetia
Magomed Bataev is suspected of abuse of authority and embezzlement.
Employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Republic of Ingushetia suspected the former Head of the regional FMS Magomed Bataea of abuse of authority. According to law enforcement officers, in 2011-2016 years Bataev illegally concluded state contracts with private security companies for protection of departmental facilities. Contracts violated requirements of regulatory legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federal Migration Service and departmental orders. In total, on the account of private security companies it was transferred more than 31.2 million rubles from the budget.
Neither the Interior Ministry, nor the ICR has not yet reported on the initiation of a criminal case on abuse of authoruty. Law enforcers carry out pre-investigation checks.
Earlier, on August 22, the Investigation Department of the Interior Ministry in Ingushetia opened a criminal case against Magomed Bataev under Article Embezzlement (part 3, Art. 160). Investigators believe that the official from 2013 to 2016 was spending budget to pay administrative penalties of his employees. Bataev repeatedly asked the Chief Accountant of the Ministry to pay fines for employees’ traffic violations. Thus it was squandered 70 thousand rubles.
Note that in the Interior Ministry official statements it did not disclose the name of the former Head of the now defuncted regional FMS. However, on pages of local newspapers it is easy to find an official name. Magomed Bataev is characterized in one of the media as "a competent and principled officer, uncompromising and incorruptible, personally committed to the Head of the Republic."
Last week, the entire world has celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Internet. In the meantime, the Russian legislators have adopted new laws restricting the development of the Russian-speaking segment of the world wide web. The 'fake news' and 'internet insults' laws adopted under the pretext of protecting the society from manipulations and threat, including external ones, violate the Constitution and some federal laws in relation to the right to search for, obtain, and use information. Furthermore, the bill on ‘sovereign Internet’ passed in the first reading by the State Duma leads us directly to self-isolation.
