Ex-deputy judge and her cousin detained in Krasnodar for 13 million rubles swindling
The suspect promised to influence a case, but in fact did not manage to do it.
The Investigative Committee of Russia in Krasnodar region initiated a criminal case into swindling related to an ex-deputy judge of Krasnodar regional court and her 28-year-old cousin.
The investigation found that the 37-year-old defendant in the case used information she had received during her service. It is about delivering a verdict by Alder district court in 2014 according to which members of a garage cooperative had to break down arbitrary constructions.
The defendant shared this information with her cousin, and they decided to make money together by swindling citizens who had munsoned.
The deputy judge met a woman who represented interests of the members of the cooperative and reported she could allegedly influence the outcome of the case. After that, the suspects met the woman a few times. During 2014-2015, she handed over the money to them from the people she represented. The total amount exceeded 12 million rubles ($180 thousand). Moreover, the suspects received one more million for helping one of the cooperative’s representatives get a position of a judge.
The detention of the suspects was carried out by officers of the Federal Security Service. The investigation is ongoing.
