Penitentiary Service ex-deputy director gets another charge
Oleg Korshunov is suspected of receiving another bribe.
The Investigative Committee initiated a new criminal case against former deputy director of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) Oleg Korshunov. The ICR reported this on its official website.
The ex-official is suspected of receiving another bribe. In addition to the investigation, Deputy Head of the Logistics Department of the FSIN of Russia Svetlana Alexeeva, owner of the Energoresurs company Marina Dyukova and Anna Ribitskaya, whom the ICR considers as an intermediary, came under investigation.
In particular, in 2015-2016, Korshunov and Alexeeva offered Marina Dyukova to participate in an electronic auction for the supply of motor fuel and sugar sand for the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia.
Dyukova was supposed to get this contract at an inflated price, in exchange for a bribe of 10% of the contract amount. So, state contracts were signed for the supply of fuel for the amount of 940 million rubles ($15.4m), which is 109 million rubles above the market value.
The second count is associated with contracts for the supply of sugar sand. The contract value was more than 402 million rubles ($6.6m), that exceeds a market cost by 50 million rubles.
Recall that Korshunov was detained in September 2017. He and Dyukova got charges of embezzlement of more than 160 million rubles when concluding two state contracts for materials for sewing prisoners shoes. In April, Korshunov became involved in the case of abuse of authority. It is connected with the construction of a detention center in the Crimea.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
