Sentence of acquittal of the Deputy Head of the Omsk MIA case has been canceled
The case on a four million bribe is currently under investigation.
The Omsk Region Prosecutor's Office made sentence of acquittal of the Deputy Head of the Omsk Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, colonel of police Sergey Klevakin to be cenceled. He was charged with para."b" Part.3 of Article.286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Abuse of power resulted in serious consequences) and Part.6 of Article.290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Taking a bribe by an official personally in the form of money for illegal actions on a large scale).
According to investigators, officer Klevakin took a four million rubles bribe from founder and de facto head of the LLC RBT-Service Victor Medvedkovskiy for supplying information, which ensured the briber company win in a competition. Previously, a tender for purchase of 18 service apartments for police department employees worth more than 29 million rubles was announced. But housing for employees of the Omsk Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs had been already chosen with the help of Klevakin, and at a much lower price - 18 million rubles.
On March 15, 2016 the Omsk Court considered criminal case of Sergei Klevakin. Despite a prosecutor’s demand for a sentence of 12 years penal colony and 280 million rubles fine for the police colonel, the former Deputy Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs suddenly turned out to be fully justified.
The Omsk Region Prosecutor's Office filed an appeal to the regional court and the case was put back for retrial. The supervisory agency insists that investigation cannot ignore the fact that Klevakin bought apartments at lower price, and then put them up for auction at inflated, and the firm that won the tender, later transferred him half of the difference value from purchase.
Up to now, the date of a new hearing of the case has not been specified. Materials of the case has already arrived to the Oktyabrsky District Court of Omsk.
According to the Russian MIA’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, the detention of Russian woman Maria Butina in the US was specifically timed to coincide with the summit of Putin and Trump in order to minimize the effect of the presidents’ meeting.
