Official nixed Ipad for which Bashkir company will “pay” million rubles
The contractor has tried to "thank" the head of the auction committee of Goskomzakaz, but he reported the bribe to the police.
The officials of the Office of Capital Construction in the Republic of Bashkortostan have been convicted of corruption. The court mulcted the company "RIAN" 1 million rubles and filed an administrative case under the "illegal remuneration in the name of the legal entity" (Art. 19.28 of the Administrative Code).
According to the investigation, the Office of Capital Construction announced the purchase of equipment for kindergartens. The maximum amount of the tender amounted to 16 million rubles. The Chief Specialist of the equipment department operated in the interests of "RIAN": she has prepared a statement of work, which no one but the "companions" could execute. As a result, "RIAN" won the competition. In gratitude, after the admission to trading, the director of the winning company complimented the Head of the auction committee of RB Goskomzakaz with an iPad. The official did not take this bribe and reported the incident to the police.
At the conclusion of the inspection, a criminal case under article on "attempted bribe" (Part 3 of Art. 30, ch. 3 of Art. 291 of the Criminal Code) was initiated against the director of the company. The Head and Chief Specialist of the equipment department retired at their own request.
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).
