2000 officials undergo punishment after fire in Kemerovo mall
More than 500 companies were also brought to administrative responsibility.
During inspections of malls that started after the fire in the Zimnyaya Vishnya shopping center in Kemerovo, 1.8 thousand officials and more than 500 companies were brought to administrative responsibility, RIA Novosti reports with reference to director of the Department for Supervisory Activities and Preventive work of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia Rinat Yenikeev.
According to Yenikeev, more than 400 shopping centers do not have permits for the commissioning of facilities. The largest number of shopping centers operated without a permit has been found in Bashkiria, the Krasnoyarsk Territory, Magadan, Sverdlovsk, Orenburg and Samara regions.
During the inspection, 460 shopping and entertainment centers, reconstructed from warehouse and industrial buildings, were also detected. Construction and repair of 152 facilities were made without technical specifications that were to be developed and agreed with the Ministry of Emergency Situations, which is a violation of the legislation on technical regulation.
Mass checks of shopping and entertainment centers began after the fire on March 25 in the Zimnyaya Vishnya shopping center in Kemerovo. The fire killed 64 people, including more than 40 children. 8 people are defendants in the criminal case.
Lawyers of Oleg Korshunov, who is charged with a large fraud in organizing the production of footwear for prisoners, do not see corpus delicti in his case. The prisoners did get their shoes, and the difference in the cost of footwear made from leather and split leather is about 10%.
