Regional Administration member fails to confirm source of income, hands over expensive auto to State
Saratov Regional Court upheld the decision of the Balakovo District Court, which deprived the municipal administration member, who had been unable to confirm the source of income, of her Lexus RX350 automobile. The car was passed into the ownership of the state.
This sum of money exceeds the total income of the official and her husband for the last three years. The administration employee, whose name was not disclosed, tried to appeal the decision of the district court, but the regional court left it unchanged, and the judicial act has already come into force.
According to the Federal Law "On Combating Corruption," public servants are required to complete declarations not only on their income but also on their expenses. If any discrepancies are found between the two figures, the officials may lose unfairly acquired property.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
