Management of Khabarovsk Vodokanal suspected of swindle
The Head of city Vodokanal and his subordinates are suspected of swindle of 130 million rubles ($2.2m).
Heads of the Khabarovsk Vodokanal Municipal Unitary Enterprise and several businessmen became persons involved in criminal case over swindle of 130 million rubles. Funds were allocated for construction of the Tungus water intake, the press service of the Investigative Committee of the region reports.
Earlier it was reported that on past weeks the Head of the Vodokanal, deputy of the Khabarovsk City Council Vladimir Steblevsky, and his son-in-law businessman Sergey Makarov were arrested.
Besides, at five defendants in the case searches were carried out. Investigators found and arrested large sums of cash, bank accounts, real estate and cars. The water intake for construction of which 11.3 billion rubles are already spent did not reach the design capacity.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
According to the head of the state-owned company, the Russian business “rebuilt the country,” “restored the collapsed Soviet enterprises,” “returned the salary to the people,” “filled the budget with money.”
