Investigators indicted head of the Kaliningrad city of Sovetsk Nikolay Voischev, who allegedly bought a large piece of land from the city administration at a significantly reduced price and without bidding. The official gave a written undertaking not to leave the place; he did not admit guilt, Kaliningrad.ru reports.
According to investigators, in December 2015, Voishchev entered into a contract on behalf of the city administration for the sale of a land plot of 1259 sq.m. worth more than 984 thousand rubles, but the document indicated a different price - 63.6 thousand rubles. Near the site, there is the land rented by the official, on which the mansion stands.
In July 2018, investigators initiated a criminal case on Abuse of Official Power (part 1 of Article 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation Criminal Code), the FSB conducted searches at the workplace and in Voishchev’s private house. The indictment was repeatedly edited but has not undergone significant changes. If it is approved by the Prosecutor's Office, the case file will be sent to the Sovetsky City Court.
