Pictures of governor and metropolitan's parked cars to be checked by police in Penza
The results of the check will be known within 30 days.
The police of the city of Penza began checking the photos which show the cars of the governor and metropolitan of Penza Serafim are parked on the pedestrian part of the street. This is reported by the local newspaper PenzaNews.
The check was initiated after the appeal of the activist of the Left Front in the Volga region Sergei Padalkin. August 10, the man witnessed violations that were recorded on the camera. On the pedestrian part of Moskovskaya Street, at the entrance to the city's Drama Theater, he noticed a parked car Volkswagen Multivan. Judging by state numbers, the governor of the region uses this car. A few minutes later another luxury car Toyota Alphard parked nearby. A priest, in whom the activist recognized Metropolitan of Penza and Nizhnelomovsk Seraphim, got out of the car. The activist later found out that the cost of his car exceeds 4.5 million rubles ($67,000). It is reported that the priest and official arrived at the Drama Theater to attend the event on the occasion of the Builder's Day.
The activist Padalkin notes that at that moment a patrol of the Road Patrol Service was on duty nearby, but for unknown reasons did not fill out an administrative protocol to the drivers of the governor and the metropolitan. The attention of the guards of order was riveted to a single picket held by a hoodwinked investor who, using the opportunity, decided to express his indignation at the deception in the construction of the residential complex. The interest-bearer, whose poster ironically portrayed the governor, was immediately taken into the ring by the guards of order, while the policemen ignored the violators of traffic rules. "Because they can, they are the masters of life," Padalkin summarized in a message on his Facebook page.
The activist wrote an appeal to the police with a request to check the fact of traffic rules violation. According to the oppositionist, he received a letter signed by the deputy head of the police of the MIA of Russia in the city of Penza, Andrei Gavryushin, which says that the appeal was registered. By law, the period of its consideration is 30 day.
