Official detained for swindling in Southern Urals
According to the investigation, Ozersk Head of Capital Construction Department Dmitry Kuvaev used to receive wages of the so-called ghost employees.
In Ozersk, Southern Urals, the police have detained Head of Capital Construction Department Municipal Government Institution Dmitry Kuvaev, Ura.ru reports. A criminal case under Swindling (part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated, and a preventive measure is being elected for him.
According to the investigation, using his official position, Kuvaev arranged for fake employment of his relative and received his wages, which he transferred to his wife's account. Thus, the official managed to embezzle more than 150 thousand rubles ($2,661).
Kuvaev claims that it was the institution’s chief accountant who invented and organized the ghost employees scheme, FederalPress reports. Allegedly, the official knew nothing about the fraud. The Ozersk Mayor's Office noted that Kuvaev's work never caused any claims. The city administration is interested in an “objective and comprehensive” investigation of the case.
Dmitry Kuvaev was appointed to the post of head of the Ozersk Capital Construction Department in July 2014. Prior to that, he ran a private construction firm.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
