Perm region: Public official launders $125.000 on constructing roads
In the Perm region, Kudymkar Administration public official laundered 7 million rubles on constructing roads.
Specialists of the Kudymkar Inter-District Investigation Department of the Office of Investigations of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Perm region opened a criminal case against the Head of the Otdel Kapitalnogo Stroitelstva Goroda Kudimkara Construction Company for breaking article 293, part 1 (“Neglect of Duty”) of the Russian Criminal Code.
The Construction Company signed municipal contract for road renovation using gravel and crushed stone with a self-employed person last March, according to investigative agencies.
The contractor performed the renovation but did not meet requirements of terms of reference. The contractor did not follow requirements of the Building Code of the Russian Federation and GOST. Moreover, the contractor overstated how much money was spent when performing under the contract. Still, the customer signed documents stating they are satisfied with the results and paid more than 8.5 million rubles.
Violations and non-compliances were discovered during a prosecutor's investigation. One of the things discovered was that the contractor spent the maximum of 1.5 million rubles ($26,662) when performing under the contract, yet was paid 8.5 million rubles ($151,087). The local budget was seriously damaged due to the fraud.
The Kudymkar Administration is being searched. Police officers are looking for documentation related to performance of the contract and are gathering evidence. The investigation of the criminal case continues.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
