Tyumen: Court convicts CEO of Kurgantekhinventarizatsiya for taking 81 bribes
The court has convicted the CEO of Kurgantekhinventarizatsiya for taking bribes on an especially large scale. The company is located in the Kurgan region.
The CEO used to regularly take bribes from a Tyumen company from October of 2014 to September of 2016, according to the investigation and the following court proceedings. The bribes amount ranged from 100,000 to 700,000 rubles (from $1.6 to 11.8 thousand), depending on the prices of subcontractor contracts for cadaster and geodesic surveying in Russian regions. Eighty-one such contracts were signed, according to investigators. The CEO took bribes when signing each of them.
It is worth mentioning that the CEO signed seven subcontractor contracts with an Omsk company after Kurgantekhinventarizatsiya’s financial activity was suspended due to tax law violations last March.
In total, the CEO took 5,457,000 rubles ($92 thousand) as bribes.
The court convicted the man for violation of part 6 of Art. 290 (Bribe-Taking on an Especially Large Scale) of the Russian Criminal Code and gave him a 3-year suspended sentence with 2-year probation. Moreover, he was fined for 2,728,500 rubles ($46 thousand).
The federal court in Washington rejected the claim of Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska to the Associated Press on libel charges because of publications about his collaboration with Donald Trump's former chief of staff, Paul Manafort, on Tuesday, October 17.
