'Golden' land case: state institutions of Vsevolozhsk raided
Investigative actions are connected with criminal case upon frauds with land plots.
Employees of the Department for Combating Economic Crimes and Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA OEBiPK) in the Leningrad Region conduct searches in the buildings of the Vsevolozhsk Administration, the city multifunctional center for processing documents and the local branch of Rosreestr.
According to Fontanka, searches, which are also conducted in the flats and apartments of a number of officials, began at 7:30 am.
Investigative actions are connected with the criminal case initiated under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling on an especially large scale). It concerns the illegal re-registration of more than 50 plots of land.
47News notes that the land in the Vsevolozhsky district is often called 'golden', because it is the most expensive in the Leningrad region.
The publication reminds that cadastral problems ('disappering' or 're-registration' of land) began in the days of Vladimir Drachev's reign, who is a deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation since September 2016.
