The Sverdlovsk Region Office of the Investigative Committee has finished the investigation against former deputy head of Beloyarsky Urban District charged with a crime under Part 6 of Article 290 of the RF Penal Code (taking a bribe on a very large scale).
According to investigators, in September 2014, the accused proposed the CEO of a gas boiler houses company via a middleman his assistance in concluding municipal contracts on upgrading housing and communal utilities in Beloyarsky Urban District. For his assistance the accused was to get 10% of the contracts price. After the two men agreed in September 2014, the Department of Capital Construction, Gas Supply and Housing and Communal Utilities, a municipal state-funded enterprise of Beloyarsky Urban District, concluded a municipal contract with the company to build a gas block boiler house in the settlement of Nekrasovo. The contract cist exceeded 9 million rubles.
In October 2014, the head of Beloyarsky Urban District issued a directive to declare state of emergency in some settlements in Beloyarsky Urban District. Based on this document, the Department of Capital Construction, Gas Supply and Housing and Communal Utilities concluded two more municipal contracts with the same company without holding a bidding. Namely, there was a contract worth more than 13 million rubles on building a gas boiler house in the settlement of Brusnyatskoye. Between November and December 2014, more than 33 million rubles was transferred to the company. Between November 2014 and January 2015, the accused got from the CEO of the company more than 3.3 million rubles in parts via the middleman.
An investigator of the regional investigative authority in cooperation with officers of the Sverdlovsk Region Office of the Federal Security Service has done a lot of work to gather and register the evidence. This way, they run computer technical inquiries, questioned witnesses, carried out searches and confiscations in the residence and office of the accused. During the search they found and joined to the case documents on the purchase of construction materials worth more than 2 million rubles for building a house. The car of the accused has been arrested.
The investigators have enough evidence, so the criminal case with the approved indictment has been referred to court. It has to be noted that the CEO of the company and the middleman have been acquitted as they actively helped to solve the crime.
