Two more cases against Cheboksary Mayor
The court previously had put Irina Klementyeva under house arrest for destruction of evidence on the first criminal case.
The Investigative Committee has initiated two new criminal cases against Mayor of Cheboksary Irina Klementyeva, suspected of abuse of official powers.
As reported by the ICR Investigations Directorate in Chuvashia, new criminal proceedings under part 1 of Art. 285 and part 4 of Art. 160 of the Russian Criminal Code (Appropriation or Embezzlement on an Especially Large Scale as Part of a Group) were instituted against the woman, whom the Court of Chuvashia placed under house arrest on June 16 for the destruction of evidence on the first case.
According to the investigation, in 2013, Klementyeva manipulated the alienation of an unregistered land plot on Volkov Street in Cheboksary, owned by the insurance company Chuvashia-Med headed by her, in favor of her husband; there was a hydropathic institution located on the plot. The investigators believe that Klementyeva divided the land plot and registered a new plot of land with a total area of 1,777 square meters "with the assignment of cadastral number without accounting for the actual presence of the hydropathic institution on the site."
Then, Chuvashia-Med and a front person representing the interests of her husband Aleksandr Reshetov, concluded a contract for the sale of a new plot of land, while submitting false information about the absence of any structures on it to the registration service. Thus, the hydropathic institution building and the land plot were donated to Irina Klementyeva's husband, causing damage of more than 1 million rubles to Chuvashia-Med.
Klementyeva has been officially charged as part of the new criminal cases. It is reported that the regional branch of United Russia has suspended her membership in the party until the outcome of cases is presented.
