Primorye Gosavtodornadzor Head received bribes from businessmen for years on end
Yuri Gubarev received more than 2.5 million rubles ($43 208).
The Leninsky District Court of Vladivostok arrested Gosavtodornadzor Head in the Primorye Territory Yuri Gubarev. The official is accused of Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale (part 6, Art. 290 of the Criminal Code).
According to investigators, from April 2012 to June 2016, Yuri Gubarev received bribes from two businessmen engaged in passenger transportation. The official earned 50 thousand rubles per month this way. For a bribe the Head of Gosavtodornadzor authorized individual entrepreneurs for carriage of passengers, despite the fact they repeatedly allowed violations of the law. They transferred money to Gubarev’s account.
Meanwhile, the official’s defense intends to appeal the court's decision on the arrest of Gubarev for two months.
"We will appeal the measure of restraint. The arrest is an exceptional measure. We believe it is too strict in relation to the client. Still, he is a General, 58-year-old, 30 of which he served. The measure in the form of house arrest would be enough," lawyer Sergey Vertelov said to the regional agency of PrimaMedia.

After the murder of the Head of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and hasty departure of his closest associate Aleksander Timofeev to Russia, an Interim Commission of the DRP Parliament has been established to determine damages sustained by legal entities and individuals due to unlawful actions of the Ministry of Revenues and Taxation. Aleksander Timofeev (Tashkent) was in charge of this ministry. Who is he and why the victims started filing complaints only now?
According to investigators, in May 2011, Vorotnikov ripped off several sock caps from uniformed policemen, threw them on to the roadway and stroked over the police officer's head twice during an unsanctioned rally.
