Kemerovo region: rogue businessman condemned for selling dangerous mine equipment
The Kemerovo region court found a former director of a company selling dangerous mine equipment guilty of swindling.
According to the investigating authorities, the businessman was charged with offenses under the articles of the Criminal Code as follows: part 4 of Art.159 - Swindling on an Especially Large Scale, part 3 of Art. 30 and part 3 of Article 159 - Attempted Swindling on a Large Scale and part 1 of Art. 238 - Sale of Goods and Products, Which Do Not Meet Safety Standards. Two crimes were revealed under the last article.
The Regional Investigative Committee gathered enough evidence to prove the entrepreneur’s criminal activity, and the court, in turn, having considered the submissions, found the former CEO guilty as charged.
During the investigation and subsequent trial, experts have found that in the fall last year, the police received information that a company was supplying vessels for water barriers not meeting safety requirements to Kuzbass mines.
During the operational activities, the law enforcement officers seized the dangerous vessels and sent them for examination. The investigation revealed that they did not meet the requirements of electrostatic safety. Further investigation confirmed that the company’s management had produced fake compliance certificates for its products, which proves the vested goals of the organization. Further, the company's management was able to convince the mines’ representatives in the high quality of its produce and its compliance with safety requirements. After that, they signed a contract for the supply of the vessels to 8 coal enterprises. The swindling resulted in the company having sold about 18 thousand of substandard parts. The total amount of transactions exceeded 2.7 million rubles.
During the investigations the businessman fully admitted his guilt and made reparation for the damage caused to the mine businesses. The court found him guilty and sentenced to 3 years, 2 months and 25 days imprisonment with a probation period of 2 years.
