Nizhny Tagil plant finds $150.000 to repay salary debt after Putin addressed its ‘chutzpah’
The Prosecutor General's Office controls payment of the arrears.
Employees of the Nizhny Tagil plant producing thermal insulation materials started getting their wage arrears. Alexander Kurennoy, the official representative of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation said that the company's management has found 9.5 million ($150.000) rubles for this.
"As of this moment, about 30 employees have received the payments: this is how many enforcement proceedings have been closed. Their total worth is 2 million rubles ($33.000). 6.5 million rubles more are expected to come to the accounts of the enterprise. The money is wired immediately to the bankcards and accounts of specific employees," Marina Kanatova, the press secretary of the local prosecutor's office, told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
We should remind that the outrageous non-payment of wages at the Tagil enterprise made the headlines after the workers complained to Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to them, the management would not pay the salaries “until the Head of state asks for it”. The President reacted quite harshly, saying: "Where does this chutzpah and boldness come from?" President Putin discussed the issue with Sverdlovsk acting Governor Evgeny Kuyvashev.
This followed by the Investigative Committee instituting three criminal cases against the company's management under part 1 of Art. 145.1 of the Criminal Code (Non-payment of Salaries), Art. 199.2 of the Criminal Code (Concealment of Monetary Funds or Property of an Organization) and Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling) in connection with embezzlement of the company's cash in the amount of about 4 million rubles ($66.300).
"All three of the criminal cases have been joined into one proceeding; the investigation is conducted by a group from the local Investigative Committee. The Investigation Department seized the company’s property as part of the enforcement proceedings," the report said.
Moreover, the Prosecutor General's Office found violations in the work of the Federal Bailiff Service while investigating the salaries non-payment at the Nizhny Tagil plant. This served as the basis for a submission to the main bailiff of the region, as well as an internal audit of the officials of the service.
