Ex-head of passport and visa service embezzles $153k intended for Kuzbass MIA Main Directorate
The woman is charged with Abuse of Official Powers.
The former head of one of the branches of the passport and visa service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Kemerovo region is accused of Abuse of Official Powers with the damage worth 10 million rubles ($153,600). This is reported by the regional ICR's press service.
According to the investigation, from July 2015 to May 2016, the 50-year-old head of the branch forced subordinates to indicate the details of a certain commercial firm in the documents. As a result, the money intended for the MIA Main Directorate in the Kemerovo region was transferred to a private company. At the same time, the lawbreaker signed monthly reports of this company on the number of actually rendered services, ignoring the understated information in the documents.
An accounting expertise will be conducted as part of the criminal case. The defendant does not cooperate with the investigation; the investigation is still in progress.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
