Investigative bodies of the Investigative Committee of Russia in Tatarstan detained 36-year-old I. about. head of the executive committee of the Muslyumovsky district of the republic. This is stated in a message published on October 20 on the agency’s website.
A criminal case was initiated against the defendant under Part 4 of Art 159 of the Criminal Code of Russia (“fraud”) and Part 1 of Art. 286 (“abuse of power”).
According to the investigation, in the spring of 2019, a donation agreement was concluded between Tatagroleasing JSC and the Muslyumovsky municipal district. As a result, movable and immovable property, including buildings and agricultural machinery, was transferred to the district budget in the amount of more than 88 million rubles. In the summer of the same year, the suspect wrote off the property from the district’s balance sheet, including gifts from Tatagroleasing. However, part of the property, including agricultural machinery, was used by citizens close to the district leadership.
“Illegal activity was suppressed in the course of competently planned investigative actions and operational-search measures carried out by the officers of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Tatarstan and the Directorate for Economic Security and Combating the Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Republic of Tatarstan,” the investigation department noted. The suspect did not admit his involvement in the crime.
Earlier in October, a criminal case was opened in the Khabarovsk Territory against the head of the rural settlement “Selo Khurba” of the Komsomolsk District. The man is suspected of fraud worth 500 thousand rubles.
