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.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
