Former vice-chairman of Jewish Autonomous Region government and his accomplice to stand trial

The Head Office of the Investigative Committee has finished the investigation against former vice-chairman of the government of Hewish Autonomous Region Sergei Krivosheyev and businessman Dmitry Alodor charged with a crime under Part 4 of Article 159 of the RF Penal Code (fraud).

According to investigators, in 2013-2014, Sergei Krivosheyev while being vice-chairman of the government of Jewish Autonomous Region – chairman of the regional committee on social protection was aware that there was a lot of money on the bank account of the Jewish Autonomous Region office of the All-Russian NGO Russian Red Cross that had been received earlier as humanitarian aid from physical persons and legal entities. The money was to buy goods and services for the citizens affected by a flood. Krivosheyev misled the chairman of the regional office of the Russian Red Cross claiming that it was necessary to supply the goods for the victims as soon as possible. He basically named the organization from which the goods were to be purchased and its head Dmitry Alodor submitted accounting documents that contained false information on the amount of the goods and overstated prices. A total of 14.8 million rubles was transferred to the supplier.

The investigators have enough evidence, so the criminal case with the approved indictment has been referred to court.
