The suspects’ apartments and the administration building are searched.
The ICR initiated a criminal case against the first deputy head of the Schelkovo District Administration, Natalia Tambova, and her subordinate, the head of the land relations department, Irina Ivanova. They are charged with illegal seizure of municipal property at a deflated price (part 4 of Article 159 CCRF), the ICR’s Main Investigative Directorate for the Moscow Region reports.
According to the investigators, in March 2017, Tambova entered into a criminal conspiracy with Ivanova and received the title to a parking lot for 3.6 million rubles ($ 54,000) instead of 10.5 million ($ 158,000). A commercial organization controlled by the suspects, in which the CEO, accountant and the founder were the officials’ relatives, also participated in the scheme. The suspects’ actions caused the Administration of the Schelkovo Municipal District damage in the amount of more than 7 million rubles ($ 100,000).
Security forces conduct searches in the suspects’ homes and workplaces. The second person of interest was arrested on charges of bribe-taking on an especially large scale (part 6 of Article 290 CCRF).
