Primorye Vice Governor makes money on typhoon
The official is suspected of embezzling budget funds allocated to survivors of Typhoon Lionrock.
The Vladivostok’s Frunzinsky District Court has delivered a verdict to Primorye Vice Governor Sergey Sidorenko: the arrested official will spend two months under house arrest, according to TASS. The reason for Sidorenko’s arrest has not been revealed, but according to the local news agency Primorye 24, he is suspected of embezzling 40 million rubles allocated from the state budget to aid the survivors of Typhoon Lionrock. This can be qualified as Attempted Swindling committed by an organized group or on a large scale (part 3 of Art. 30, part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code).
The Primorye Administration did not comment on the situation. They said they were expecting a statement from the law enforcement bodies. Olesya Yasevich, the Governor’s spokesman said that the authorities’ official position would be announced by the end of the day.
The reports of the Deputy Governor’s arrest came yesterday. The Primorye Investigative Committee only said there was no criminal case yet. Also, information surfaced that the place of Sidorenko’s brother had been raided. Avrora Rimskaya, the local ICR Executive’s Senior Aide, said that the Federal Security Service supervised all the investigative actions regarding the official.
Sergey Sidorenko became the Primorye Vice Governor in 2012 and was in charge of agriculture and fisheries, veterinary medicine, licensing and trade. Notably, the Russian President awarded him the Medal of Honor three months ago.
