Prosecutor General orders Rosnano to deal with public procurement violations
The country’s main supervisory authority made a submission addressed to Anatoly Chubais demanding to eliminate everything that contradicts the legislation.
The Prosecutor General's Office revealed a number of irregularities when scrutinizing Rosnano. The inspection on the name of the company’s Chairman of the Board Anatoly Chubais was followed by a submission obliging Rosnano to eradicate all of the shortcomings identified and punish the responsible ones, said Kommersant.
For instance, it was found that the company would pay to contractors breaking the established payment terms. The delays ranged from two days to a year, which "gave rise to certain negative social and economic consequences they had to suffer," the file states. In addition, Rosnano consistently failed to meet the deadlines for posting the information in the public procurement system for quite a number of orders.
Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
