Russian Highways CEO in Sevastopol caught getting rollback
Vitaly Uzlov took 300 thousand rubles ($5.300) for his help to businessmen in obtaining state contracts worth about 60 million rubles ($1m).
Vitaly Uzlov, the CEO of Sevastopol Avtodor (Russian state infrastructure and highway service company) is suspected of taking a bribe from businessmen (part 5 of Art. 290 of Russian Criminal Code).
The investigation believes that Uzlov proposed to the officials of Vozrozhdenie (a local firm) to conclude contracts for the supply of construction materials and rental of special equipment in the autumn of 2016. In return, the official demanded a bribe, promising further patronage of the company. The businessmen agreed to the terms. Eventually, in October 2016, the Sevastopol Avtodor head concluded a contract with Vozrozhdenie for crushed stone supply worth about $500.000 and a lease agreement for special machinery worth almost $550.000, and transferred the advance payment to the company's account. In response, the entrepreneurs transferred to Uzlov's bankcard a rollback in the amount of 300 thousand rubles ($5.300).
The motion of the prosecution to put Vitaly Uzlov in custody was granted. The court also seized his property: 250 thousand rubles ($4.420), a Toyota Land Cruiser 200 and a Lexus RX350 worth 6 million rubles ($106.160) altogether and a collection of watches.
Besides, the website of the city administration made a post saying the accused had been dismissed from his job as director of Sevastopol Avtodor. It should be noted that Uzlov had been just recently appointed to the post, in October 2016.
