Ex-Head of Ministry of Internal Affairs in Vladimirsky region received suspended sentence for embezzlement
The former Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is accused of malfeasance.
The former Head of the regional Department of the Internal Affairs of Russia in Vladimirsky region Sergey Gubarev received a sentence of two years and four months' imprisonment with a probation period of two years. In addition, the policeman had been deprived of the right to hold public office for three years. The verdict can be appealed.
According to investigators, Gubarev, starting from the date of taking office in 2012, has repeatedly exceeded his official powers for personal purposes: to buy gasoline for his car at public expense, receive free food and treated his relatives in a private clinic. The defendant pleaded guilty and voluntarily paid compensation in the amount of 315 thousand rubles.
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).
