University administration to be tried for bribery in Volgograd
The ICR Investigations Directorate in the Volgograd region has initiated a criminal case upon commercial bribery as part of an organized group.
As many as five employees of the Volgograd branch of the Moscow Financial and Law Academy are defendants in the case, including Director, a dean, resource teachers and a professor.
As reported by the press service of the regional ICR Investigations Directorate to volzsky.ru, From April this year, the branch management has been receiving a monetary reward from students for issuing test scores. In general, end-of-semester exams would cost from 6 to 48 thousand rubles. At the same time, the alumnus of the higher education institution would receive a state-recognized degree after graduation.
Defendants are accused of committing 20 criminal episodes. Three of them have already confessed to the crime and are willing to cooperate with the investigation.
Searches have been conducted at the place of the suspects' work and residence, bank cards, money, exam records, and other documents have been seized. A measure of restraint is currently being selected.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
