Sentence of the ex-deputy of Tomsk Duma will be reclassified
Earlier, the people’s deputy and director of construction company, who stole hundreds of millions rubles, got off with suspended sentence.
Press service of Tomsk Regional Court announced that a motion of victims of the ex-deputy of Tomsk City Council Vladimir Zamoshchin was partially granted. Applicants asked to reclassify the actions of former SU-13 limited liability company (LLC) director and the people’s deputy, which were earlier defined as «causing property damage by deception», to more strict in terms of the Criminal Code. The regional prosecutor’s office did not see obstacles for new consideration of the case. Soon Vladimir Zamoshchin will appear in Tomsk Regional Court again.
In April 2015 Zamoshchin has already been convicted in several financial crimes. He was incriminated art. 176 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (CC RF) – «Illegal credit receiving», art. 145.1 of CC RF– «Non-payment of salaries», art. 165, para. 1 and 4 of CC RF – «Causing property damage by deception or confidence fraud, which has caused especially heavy damage», art, 195 of CC RF – «Illegal actions at bankruptcy» and art. 199.1 of CC RF – «Non-execution of the tax agent’s duties».
According to investigators of the Investigative Committee in the Tomsk Region, Zamoshchin intentionally was not paying his company’s workers salaries for long time and as a result the back payments on salaries estimated at 32 million rubles. He also illegally received several credits for 130 million rubles in a bank, by providing knowingly false information about the financial standing of his company. After that, the deputy raised investments of private citizens under the pretext of shared-equity construction of multiple-dwelling houses in Tomsk. However, he did not carry out his obligations and stole 370 million rubles from the investors. At the same time, the SU-13 director Zamoshchin illegally held income taxes from the workers’ salaries, without transferring it to budget and caused damage to the state in a size of 30 million rubles.
For all these proved crimes, the court sentenced Vladimir Zamoshchin to 3 years of suspended prison sentence with probation period of 3 years. But the ex-deputy was amnestied and engaged in business again.
Now, the citizens, harmed by his actions are waiting for a new meeting with Vladimir Zamoshchin in court, to reclassify a criminal detention set earlier.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
