In the Chechen Republic, former employee of Republican Treasury convicted for embezzlement and legalization of funds worth more than 95 million rubles

The evidence gathered by the Chechen Republican Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation was found by the court to be sufficient to convict Anzor Dudayev. He was found guilty of offences under Part 4 of Article 159 (swindling committed by a person through their official position, on an especially large scale) and Paragraphs A and B of Part 4 of Article 174.1 (legalization of monetary funds acquired by a person as a result of an offence committed by them) of the Criminal Code of Russia.

The Investigation and the court established that, having information on payment documents with unclaimed funds, Dudayev had committed theft of budgetary funds in the amount of more than 95 million rubles together with two employees of the Caucasian Department of Rostechnadzor.

For instance, from August 2012 to June 2016, Dudayev and his accomplices had submitted deliberately false documents to the local treasury department via special software, on the basis of which the funds had been transferred to the accounts of the Rostechnadzor Caucasian Department.

After that, for the purpose of legalization, those funds had been transferred from the accounts of the Rostechnadzor Caucasian Department to the accounts of several commercial organizations and individuals as if they had been overpaid and had come to the disposal of Dudayev and his accomplices.

The court sentenced Dudayev to six years of deprivation of liberty in a general-regime correctional labor colony, with one year of restriction of liberty and two years and six months of deprivation of the right to hold public service posts.

Criminal cases against two of Dudayev’s accomplices were previously considered by the court with a sentence of actual deprivation of liberty.
