Saratov: police horses driven to exhaustion
A state contractor could appropriate the money saved on animal feed.
The prosecutor's office found violations in the care for horses of the Saratov police. The law enforcement agency assured that employees of a local entrepreneur look after their animals according to the established rules. However, on September 13, 10 out of 22 horses were to be written off due to exhaustion, RIA Novosti reports.
The state contract is executed by IE Sokolov; the horses are kept in the stables of the city hippodrome. The prosecutor's office has identified violations of veterinary legislation in the maintenance of service horses and the law on public procurement in the conclusion of contracts for the supply of animal feed. The police initiated a case “on the fact of fraudulent actions of employees of IE Sokolov” using their official position (part 3 of Article 159 CCRF). The violators face up to six years in a penal colony.
The arrest of Rauf Arashukov was a signal to the other senators: not only the governors but also members of the Federation Council, have lost the status of untouchables. So, it’s time to learn to live modestly, without inappropriate luxury. The most perspicacious realized this a few years ago and stopped giving their beloved ones.
