State inspector on radiation received 3 years in maximum security penal colony because of bribe
In Saransk the Court delivered its verdict in the case of the state inspector of the Federal Service for Ecology, Technology and Nuclear Supervision Alexander Vertyagin, who was found guilty of taking bribes.
The state inspector of the interregional department of Rostekhnadzor inspections in Mordovia, Penza and Ulyanovsk regions has been identified the extent of the penalty of three years in the maximum security penal colony and was taken into the custody in the courtroom.
In files of the case there is stated that Vertyagin summoned and received a bribe from the Head of the department of the state unitary enterprise Lisma Deushev for concealing the fact of the detection of violations in the radioactive waste storage.
Having identified the violation of waste disposal regulations during an unscheduled inspection of the enterprise Vertyagin offered Deushev to avoid the protocol, which could cost the company from 200 to 400 thousand rubles fine.
Instead, Lisma could pay off the inspector for 200 thousand rubles. That was the number that he wrote on a piece of paper during a conversation with Deushev, while sitting in his car. The representative of Lisma asked time to think and then he turned to the regional FSB department. After that, during a special operation, Vertyagin was arrested red-handed by law enforcement officials.
The retired security official and two of his subordinates are suspected of an attempt to receive 31.5 million rubles ($470,610) from a construction company for its participation in the corporation’s tender.
Early in August, criminal ‘authority’ Yuri Esin a.k.a. Samosval (Dump Truck) has been detained in Moscow. In the 1990s he had a reputation of the ‘godfather’ of ‘Russian mafia’ in Italy and faced 75 years behind bars. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how could the 67-year-old criminal ‘authority’ having close ties with many thieves-in-law escape the Italian justice 20 years ago and avoid any issues with the Russian law enforcement authorities up until his recent arrest.
