FSIN will not claim compensation from Raymer's accomplice
In the Zamoskvoretsky Court of Moscow it was held a hearing on the case of the former Head of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) Aleksandr Reimer, who is, along with two accomplices, accused of stealing 1 billion rubles, intended for the purchase of electronic bracelets.
As it became known from the courtroom, the agency decided to withdraw the claim against a convicted on 3 years and 8 months inventor of electronic bracelets Nikolay Martynov - one of the defendants in the case. This was stated by the Deputy Head of the legal department of the Federal Penitentiary Service Mikhail Zaytsev.
Consequential amendments will be made in the lawsuit, said Zaitsev to RIA Novosti.
For the remaining three defendants the FSIN supports the claim in full. Previously, the agency has estimated the damage inflicted by fraudsters material at 2.7 billion rubles and stated this amount in the civil claim.
Nikolai Martynov is the CEO contractor of LLC NPF META, which concluded an agreement with the FSIN to supply bracelets. He is currently under house arrest. Earlier Martynov suggested to indemnify the damage by electronic bracelets that he invented.
According to investigators, during the period from 2010 to 2012 Martynov, acting as part of the OCG, led by Raymer, swindeled money allocated for the purchase of electronic control systems for prisoners. It happened because of multiple overpricing the purchase of bracelets. After that, the Head of the NPF Meta Aleksandr Reimer handed over 140 million rubles in the form of rollback.
Recall that defendants in the case are not only Aleksandr Reimer, but his Deputy Nikolay Krivolapov and the Director of the State Center for Information Technology and Communications of the FSIN Victor Opredelenov. At the court hearing, which was held a week ago, they all refused to plead guilty.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
