Ugra: Rosreestr employee suspected of negligence resulting in 20-million-ruble dent in budget
The suspect is believed to have allowed the transfer of a building without a legal expertise. Thus, the tax authorities were not able to recover multimillion tax arrears.
"According to investigators, the suspect being an official performed his duties improperly, which resulted in a substantial breach of the legally protected interests of the state", stated the press-service of the ICR in the Khanty-Mansiysk Region.
In 2014, a director of a commercial organization turned to the Rosreestr in Nefteyugansk with a request to end the encumbrance on the property. Earlier the tax authorities had prohibited to dispose of the building. The Rosreestr employee accepted the claim and without conducting the proper legal examination, passed the documents for lifting the ban. The businessman then sold the building and the tax authorities have not been able to recover tax arrears amounting to about 20 million rubles.
A criminal case has been initiated against the employee under article Neglect of Duty (part 1, Art. 293 of the Criminal Code).
