Sobyanin dismissed heads of Severnoe and Yuzhnoe Butovo districts for ghost employees
The Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin has dismissed heads of Severnoe and Yuzhnoe Butovo. District leaders have lost their positions due to public swindling.
In addition, the Prefect of the South-West Administrative District Oleg Volkov has been reprimanded for "improper control and organization of work at Zhilishchnik State-Financed Entity," as was reported on Mayor's twitter account.
"I have suspended heads of Severnoe and Yuzhnoe Butovo for improper control and organization of work at Zhilishchnik SFE. A reprimand has been issued for the prefect of South-West Administrative District," said the message on Sobyanin's Twitter page.
According to Vesti-Moscow daily show, inspection materials have already been referred to the Prosecutor's Office.
As noted by TASS, the violations came to light after a complaint was filed against the heads of Zhilishchnik rayona Yuzhnoe Butovo SFE, who underpaid to their employees. Moreover, the district management's staff count listed non-existent employees whose salary would go to the district authorities.
Similar violations had been revealed in Severnoe Butovo, where Sergey Sobyanin has also dismissed the district Head. The Mayor's Office has learnt that utility providers use ghost employees to embezzle money.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
