Buryatia Council member embezzles 13 million rubles
Member of the People's Khural of Buryatia Viktor Abusheyev has been charged with large-scale fraud, art. 159 para. 4 of the Russian Criminal Code. The people’s nominee faces up to 10 years in prison.
The criminal case is conducted on the fact of budgetary funds embezzlement, which was carried out by persons involved in the activities of the state public institution Management of Capital Construction of the Government of the Republic.
Victor Abusheyev is not only a politician, but also a well-known businessman in Buryatia. For several years, he actually ran the Baykalstroykom Company, although his name was not mentioned in any relevant official documents. As the head of the construction company, the official was involved in the auction for the supply and installation of electrical equipment for the construction of the Baikal automobile tourism cluster in Nizhnyaya Ivolga. The investigation revealed that the documents for the equipment cost, submitted by the council member, were fake. In reality, the purchased equipment was 13 million rubles cheaper. The difference was acquired by Abusheyev himself.
The Soviet District Court of Ulan-Ude issued an order to detain Abusheyev.
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.
