Prosecutor requested nine years of general regime penal colony for former Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) Aleksander Reymer, TASS reports.
During the hearing representative of the state prosecution also reported that charge against Reymer was requalified – official power abuse is excluded from corpus delicti. Thus, Reymer, and also Nikolay Krivolapov working as his deputy and director of the Center of information and technical providing and communication of FPS Victor Opredelenov are incriminated swindle. None of the defendants admit their guilt.
To recall, Aleksander Reymer headed FSIN in 2009-2012. According to investigators, the high-ranking official created a criminal group, members of which in the past were his deputy, major general Nikolay Krivolapov and his old acquaintance, businessman Nikolay Martynov.
In 2010 these employees of FSIN, using official position and despite results of researches on definition of the enterprises that make electronic bracelets, transferred all contracts on their production to Meta LLC, which was headed by Martynov. However, the company did not have its own inventions and Martynov, at the suggestion of his accomplices, redeemed technical documentation and prototypes of bracelets which passed tests in FSIN Scientific Research Institute from the Perm IST CJSC for 2.8 million rubles ($49.600). Further the contract of delivery of goods to service of execution of punishment was signed, however the cost of one bracelet was overestimated now and made from 108.5 thousand to 128 thousand rubles (~$2130). Moreover, investigators found out that a part of bracelets made by Meta LLC did not work at all. However, production was arranged and Aleksander Reymer received in the office "kickback" from his friend Nikolay Martynov - 10% of the sum realized by his company from the state contract. It made 140 million rubles cash.
Investigation, established that the criminals earned more than 1.2 billion rubles ($21.2m) on inflated prices of electronic bracelets, at the same time the general damage to the state budget exceeded 2.7 billion rubles.

Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
