Orenburg region: Deputy head of Abdulinsky police department suspected of embezzlement
The reason for the recent searches in Abdulinsky Urban district has been revealed. The deputy head of administration and a businessman are suspected of embezzling budget money.
The information that the Abdulino administration has been searched appeared in the local media yesterday. It became known that the first deputy head of administration of the Abdulinsky city district municipality and a businessman are suspected of embezzling budget money.
The Investigative Committee for the Orenburg region is investigating into the criminal case initiated against first deputy head of the Abdulinsky city district municipality administration for operational management and head of the Department of Capital Construction, Architecture and Municipal Services. He is suspected of committing a crime under the article ‘Abuse of official powers.’
According to the investigation's lead, from August 2016 to January 2017, the suspect acted as a customer on behalf of the Department of Capital Construction, Architecture and Municipal Services of Abdulino administration. He concluded a contract with a commercial organization to carry out works on the overhaul of the Radovsky water intake for more than 3 million rubles ($51.9 thousand). Later, he signed documents containing untrue information, according to which the contractor fully complied with the contract terms. As a result, the damage from the official’s actions amounted to more than 1 million rubles ($17.3 thousand).
As reported by the ICR Regional Directorate's press service, a preventive measure in the form of a recognizance not to leave has been elected for the official.
During the investigation, it was established that the head of the commercial organization was involved in the criminal case. June 15, 2017, a 58-year-old resident of Abdulino, the director of a commercial organization that acted as the contractor, has been detained as the second suspect in the case. He is suspected of committing a crime under the article ‘Swindling.’ It was found that, knowing that the company does not have a real opportunity to fulfill the terms of the contract, the business person decided to steal the money allocated from the local and regional budgets. He made it look like the terms of the contract were executed, but in reality, the work was not fully implemented.
The election of a preventive measure to the businessman and filing of accusation to the defendants is currently in progress. The investigation into the case is ongoing.
A St. Petersburg company Renessans-Restavratsiya JSC, involved in a criminal case under Art. 169 (Swindling) of the Russian Criminal Code, has been selected to receive the contract. The case was initiated in September 2017 in connection with the failure to perform 4-million-ruble ($70 thousand) works to restore a XVI-century fortress in the Leningrad region.
