Searches over embezzlement have been carried out in the regional department of health.
About 500 thousand rubles ($8.7 thousand), allocated for the payment of salaries to employees, have been embezzled in the Tomsk Regional Dental Clinic.
The crime has been revealed by FSB officers in the region. According to the investigators, one of the clinic heads illegally received a second salary in the period from January 2015 to January 2016 “using the authority and significance of his office”. In total, about half a million rubles, allocated from the Mandatory Health Insurance Fund (MHIF) to pay for the work of employees, was embezzled in a year. The investigators do not disclose the suspect’s name, however, it is known that Tatyana Domnich, who now occupies the position of the Vice-Mayor of Tomsk for Social Policy, was the head of the clinic at that time.
The FSB Administration has initiated a criminal case under Art. 160 of the Russian Criminal Code (Embezzlement or Appropriation). Earlier in the case, the law enforcers conducted searches and seizure of documents in the regional health department.
Tatiana Domnich has not yet commented on the initiation of the case.
Tatyana Domnich became deputy mayor for social policy in January 2016. From 2014 to 2015, she served as deputy head of the regional health care for medical issues. In September 2015, she became a deputy of the City Duma.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
