Deputy Head of Nazran City Administration is suspected of exceeding authority

“Officers of the MIA of Russia Main Directorate of Economic Security and Combatting Corruption, together with colleagues from the Republic of Ingushetia, detained Deputy Head of the Nazran City Administration on suspicion of abuse of power.

According to available information, in 2017, the Nazran administration and the state unitary enterprise entered into a fictitious municipal contract for the implementation of works on the arrangement of a water supply system with installation of water towers and drilling of artesian wells. In fact, no work was performed, but budget funds in the amount of 24 million rubles were unjustifiably withdrawn to accounts of third-party organizations.

In addition, this municipal contract was actually concluded in violation of the procedure established by the Federal Law of April 5, 2013 No. 44-FZ “On the Contract System in the Sphere of Procurement of Goods, Work, and Services to Ensure State and Municipal Needs”, it was not posted on the official public procurement website, and the contract number did not match the date of its conclusion.

A criminal investigation was initiated on the grounds of the crime stipulated by part 3 of Article 286 of the RF Criminal Code. On the request of the investigators, placement to custody was selected by Court as the preventive measure for the suspect.

Currently, operative investigation steps are being taken to establish all the circumstances of the unlawful activities,” said the official representative of the Russian MIA Irina Volk.
