Rostransnadzor employee dismissed after his wife bought 66 cars
A prosecutor's investigation showed that the family's legal income could not allow such purchases.
An employee of the Federal Transportation Inspection Service (Rostransnadzor) was dismissed after it turned out that his wife had bought 66 cars, Prosecutor General Yury Chaika said in an interview with Kommersant.
A prosecutor's investigation showed that the family's legal income was insufficient to purchase so many cars.
According to Mediazona, only one Rostransnadzor official is indicated in the register of officials dismissed due to loss of confidence, namely Senior State Inspector Aleksandr Komarov. He was dismissed in January 2018 for not taking measures to prevent a conflict of interest (item 1 part 1 of Art. 59.2 of the Federal Law “On State Civil Service”).
The prosecutor general recalled a similar case in Krasnodar. The head of the Federal Highway Administration was dismissed for signing contracts for the overhaul of roads amounting to more than 2.6 billion rubles ($39.1 million) with a company, the founder of which he owed 6 million rubles ($90,362).
Chaika said that in just nine months of 2018, prosecutor's investigations revealed 188 thousand violations of anti-corruption legislation and 25 thousand crimes of this nature. 2.5 thousand criminal cases of corruption were initiated. 47,800 officials were disciplined at the request of the prosecutor's office. About 4 thousand lawsuits worth over 4 billion rubles ($60.2 million) were referred to courts.
Employees of the Federal Antimonopoly Service, departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Rosstandart, Rosavtodor, and their subordinate organizations have been hiding information about their income. Most often, officials hid information on real estate and transport owned by them or their spouses.
