Investigation of a probe into abuse of authority by a former head of interregional tax inspection completed

The Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia finished investigation of a probe under head of Tatarstan Republican Interregional Tax Inspection No. 9 of the Federal Tax Service Almaz Safin. He is accused of committing an offense under Paragraph C of Part 3 of Article 286 of the Criminal Code of Russia (abuse of authority entailing grave consequences).

According to the investigation, in August 2017 Safin, occupying the specified position, organized the preparation of an official document - a decree containing knowingly false information. The document reflected the alleged indebtedness of a private company for the payment of taxes and fees.

As a result, a representative of a private organization was denied registration of changes in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities to change the legal address of the company, which subsequently made it possible to steal from the firm funds in the amount of more than 76.8 million rubles.

The investigators collected enough evidence for the criminal case to be transferred to court.
