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.
The ICR is checking into former Head of the Moscow Bureau of Forensic Expertise Evgeny Kildyushov and his deputy Oksana Doronina for using gray schemes of procurement and payment of salaries to ‘ghost employees’. Last week, the bureau was searched by the FSB.
