Swindling added to list of charges against ex-deputy head of Tambov region Federal Penitentiary Service
The former Federal Penitentiary Service officer faces up to 6 years’ imprisonment for swindling, and even more for the totality of charges, the ICR noted.
The former deputy head of the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate (FSIN) in the Tambov region has been accused of swindling.
As reported by the press service of the ICR regional office, a criminal case of swindling (Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated against the officer (name not disclosed).
According to the investigation, the ex-deputy head of the regional directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service had fraudulently received a total of 1.1 million rubles ($18.5 thousand) from the father of one of the convicts.
It is reported that the money had been transferred in two tranches of 500 and 600 thousand rubles. At the same time, the FSIN officer had promised the bribe-giver the release of his son on parole, but in fact he had not taken any action.
On this charge, the former deputy head of the Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate in the Tambov region faces up to 6 years of imprisonment. However, the ICR representatives noted that the punishment is likely to be more severe. Earlier, the person accused had already been charged with bribery and official misconduct. The court is currently considering these cases.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
