The evidence gathered by the Krasnodar Regional Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation was found to be sufficient by the court to sentence former director of MUE Water Supply and Sewage Facilities Alexander Umitbaev who was found guilty of swindling, illegal participation in business activity, and legalization of illegally acquired monetary funds (Part 4 of Article159, Paragraph B of Part 4 of Article 174.1, and Article 289 of the Criminal Code of Russia).
The investigators and the court established that, without the required tender procedures, the man had signed fictitious service contracts with an organization affiliated with him and controlled by him, for flushing of water supply pipelines, and in the result, had stolen over 60 million rubles by fraud. The work had not been actually performed. In the same manner, the man had acquired almost 6 million rubles presenting fictitious reports about allegedly completed work by a contractor for water discharge and transferring the said amount to the accounts of this contractor. The facts of his illegal activities were found by the officers of the Federal Security Service Regional Directorate.
The court ruled to sentence Umitbaev to 4 years of imprisonment in a general regime correctional colony.
