Subcontractor leases Porsche Cayenne for street cleaning using budget money
Investigators initiated a criminal case against the entity’s CEO.
In St. Petersburg, a CEO of a subcontract organization StroyTekhServis LLC leased a Porsche Cayenne for 3.4 million rubles ($ 49,000) for street cleaning using budget money. The company received the contract from ZhKS No. 2 NAR LLC, which won the competition St. Petersburg’s Nevsky District Housing Agency providing forged documents. The total amount of the contract is more than 88 million rubles ($ 1,265 million), according to the prosecutor's office of the northern capital.
The subcontractor provided acts of street cleaning, but in fact either did not comply with them, or spent less money than it was indicated on paper. The prosecutor's office of the Nevsky District sent the verification materials to the investigating authorities, which initiated a criminal case on money laundering. The district prosecutor's office supervises the course of the investigation.
Seventeen Russian Governors are facing criminal prosecution for bribe-taking. The rest of them may be jailed any time for exceedance of official powers. At least, Nezygar (@russica2) Telegram channel claims so citing an unidentified source in the law enforcement structures. However, according to that source, it is currently prohibited to prosecute top-level officials. In 2018, the operatives had only searched offices of Vice Governors or Deputy Ministers – not their bosses. The CrimeRussia found out what supreme functionaries are on the hook of the law enforcement authorities and may be immediately indicted if the President orders so.
