In Volgograd region, law enforcement authorities have initiated a criminal case against an official from Cherepovets district.
He is accused of embezzling over 220 thousand rubles.
According to the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Volgograd region, a criminal case has been instituted against one of the heads of the Cherepovets Municipal District under part 3 of Art. 160 of the Russian Criminal Code (Misappropriation of Other People's Property Entrusted to the Convicted Person).
During the investigation, experts have found that in the period from 2013 to 2015 the official illegally set himself a monthly cash reward for his own ends. The rewards exceeded the acceptable limits. He would spend the budget money on personal needs. According to investigators, such monthly self-promotion resulted in losses of 225,800 rubles to the municipal budget.
The reason for the commencement of criminal proceedings was the results of the prosecutor’s investigation of the local administration’s materials.
The investigation into the matter is currently under way; investigators are now looking to uncover all the circumstances of the offense.
