The Astrakhan Regional Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia is investigating a probe into Chairman of the committee for municipal property management of the Provolzhsky District, suspected of committing offenses under Part 1 of Article 293 of the Criminal Code of Russia (neglect of duty).
According to the investigation, between 2018 and 2020, the chairman of the municipal property management committee of the Privolzhsky District, knowing that 357 land plots in the village of Erle in Privolzhsky District of the region were not suitable for individual housing construction, issued orders, on the basis of which the plots were granted to large families. It turned out to be impossible to use the land for individual housing construction, since the territory was permanently flooded by floodwaters.
The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed the Head of the Astrakhan Regional Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia I.Sh. Mogushkov to take exhaustive measures aimed at restoring the violated rights of citizens, provide legal assessment to the actions of all responsible persons and report on the progress of the investigation.
The progress of the investigation is to be supervised by the Central Office of the Investigative Committee of Russia.
