Сourt placed rector of University n. a. Bonch-Bruevich under house arrest
Sergey Bachevsky is suspected of exceeding official powers.
The Nevsky District Court of St. Petersburg imposed a house arrest until 4 July as a preventive measure for rector of the Bonch-Bruyevich University of Telecommunications Sergey Bachevsky. The FSB department in the northern capital petitioned for the arrest.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, Bachevsky was detained on Thursday, May 11, on suspicion of abuse of authority.
It is known that the criminal case is connected with previously concluded contracts for leasing a number of premises with an area of no more than 16 square meters (property of the university) to commercial structures. According to the media, the premises are in unsatisfactory condition and in need of restoration. The damage from the criminal activity of Bachevsky is estimated at 2 million rubles ($35.000).
We add that the rector's lawyers insisted on house arrest, citing client's poor health. Bachevsky himself said that his arrest could lead to "economic collapse" in the university. He explained that only he has the right of electronic signature, his subordinates can sign financial documents that do not exceed the amount of 50 thousand rubles ($874).
Since November 2016, political experts and media demonstrate keen interest to the Kemerovo region and its leader. High-profile terminations and arrests of regional officials and law enforcement officers, the illness of the Governor, and his disappearance from the public sight have sparked numerous rumors and speculations. According to the most recent prognosis, Tuleev has to testify as a witness in the ‘Inskoy Pit case’ and potentially faces jail.
According to the documents that were at the disposal of the editorial board, Nikolai Germashev handed resignation himself. In the future, his name will be featured on the pages of the criminal case, insiders say.
