The accused, who previously held the position of chief accountant of the police department and one of her subordinates admitted their guilt in committing the incriminated acts provided for by Part 4 of Article 160, Article 174.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia, and petitioned for a pre-trial agreement on cooperation.

According to the investigation, in the period from 2012 to February 2020, one of the accused, occupying the post of the head of the Shadrinsky Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, and since 2017, the deputy head of the Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Kurgan region, using his official position and the authority of his high-ranking position, organized and headed a criminal group for embezzlement of funds from the salaries, bonuses and other statutory payments accrued to the employees of the Shadrinsky Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. The head of the Shadrinsky Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, taking advantage of the patronage of the superior accused and abusing his official powers, demanded that his subordinates hand over to him a part of their bonuses. The accountant-cashier also took part in the misappropriation of cash from the personnel of the police department, not giving out the full wages to the employees. The appropriated funds were distributed among the members of the criminal group, depending on the role of each. In total, in the period from 2012 to 2020, the defendants thus appropriated at least 53.5 million rubles.

The deputy chief of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Department legalized the funds in the amount of 2 million rubles by opening a deposit for the indicated amount in the bank for one of his relatives.

For the purpose of interim measures, at the request of the investigator, the property of the accused was arrested.
