An employee of Rosseti Severny Kavkaz - Dagenergo to stand trial for attempted large scale swindling

The Main Investigations Directorate over North Caucasian Federal District of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation finished investigation of a probe into Hasan Magomedov, Head of the Technological Connection Department of the Dagenergo branch of Rosseti Severny Kavkaz PJSC. He is accused of committing an offense under Part 3 of Article 30, Part 3 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of Russia (attempted swindling on a large scale).

According to investigation, in September 2020 a resident of the Republic of Dagestan contacted Magomedov on the issue of connecting to electric networks. Magomedov, out of mercenary motives in order to take possession of the man's money by deception, said that for the preparation of all the documents required for connecting to the electric networks, it was necessary to transfer him funds in the amount of 1 million rubles, although in reality this service, according to the approved tariff, cost about 2000 rubles. Magomedov failed to fulfill his criminal intent, since he was detained by officers of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia over the North Caucasus Federal District after the local resident applied to law enforcement bodies.

The investigation gathered enough evidence; therefore, the criminal case with the approved indictment has been sent to the court to be tried on the merits.
