Head of Dagestan Rosreestr suspected of creating OCC
The officials are accused of creating an organized crime community and illegal enrichment. The damage from the suspects’ actions is at least 370 million rubles ($5.75 million).
The Russian Investigative Committee has initiated a criminal case against the management and officers of the Dagestan branch of Rosreestr, as well as officials of the Cadastral Chamber of the Republic and the administration of Makhachkala. This is reported by the regional ICR's press service. The officials are suspected of creating an organized crime community through the use of their official position and participation therein (part 1, and part 2, and part 3 of Art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code).
The defendants in the case include Head of the Dagestan Department of Rosreestr Safiyul Magomedov and his subordinates Zaur Kichiev, Renat Shikhveledov, Timur Ayubov, Adil Klychev, former Deputy Head of the administration of Makhachkala German Ragimkhanov, Cadastral Engineer of the Federal Cadastral Chamber of the Republic Abdula Umakhanov, and Islam Ismayilov.
The investigation believes that the organized crime community was engaged in illegal enrichment through fraudulent schemes with municipal and state land plots. The community existed since 2000. With the help of fake decrees on behalf of the mayor of Makhachkala, fake extracts from business books, and other documents, the suspects withdrew more than 30 sites from state ownership that were handed over to individuals and enterprises. The damage from the suspects’ actions is at least 370 million rubles.
According to PASMI, the initiation of the case was the result of searches that took place in the Republic’s Rosreestr and the Cadastral Chamber earlier. Back then, it was reported that the officials were suspected of land fraud.
