Moscow region officials overstated their salary by 20 million rubles
The Accounting Chamber of the Moscow region opened a case on administrative heads of financial departments and mayors of Solnechnogorsk, Fryazino and village Mikhnevo.
The Accounting Chamber of the Moscow region (AC) completed a large-scale inspection of salaries of officials. It turned out that the officials unduly increased the total wage fund, set higher salaries and fanned states. Based on the results of inspections the AC informed regional Governor Andrey Vorobyov and started several administrative cases on the heads of financial departments and mayors of Solnechnogorsk, Fryazino and Mikhnevo village. In addition, violations were found in Yakhroma, Dedovsk, Andreevka and Istra district.
"The excess of the wage fund on officials and municipal employees amounted to 20.1 million rubles," said a source in the AC to Life. The size of overpayments made in Andreyevka is 11.768.800 rubles, in Dedovsk - 513.000, in the Istra district – 4.651.500, Fryazino – 3.219.300 rubles.
The Ministry of Finance at the request of the AC quitted payments from the regional budget for as long as the districts do not resolve violations (reduce wages and fired some employees). However, the Accounting Chamber opened the administrative proceedings against Head of Andreevka Sergey Sidorenko, he was fined on 20 thousand rubles.
Also, for violation of the rules of transfers between regional and municipal budgets the financial management and heads of the Istra district and Fryazino, Interim Head of Mikhnevo were brought to the responsibility.
The criminal case against former Head of Solnechnogorsk Alexander Kruglov was failed to be opened, because the official has left his place of residence and could not be bound out. To track down and make up a report, the AC requested information from the Department for Migration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
In addition, in the results of the audit officials can get under the prosecution for abuse of authority or negligence.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
