MOSCOW, September 5 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy Kurgan region governor Viktor Shevelev has been suspended, after prosecutors opened criminal proceedings against him within a case over illegal transfer of ownership rights to a water basin, the Prosecutor General's Office told Itar-Tass on Monday.

The PGO's statement followed a check conducted by regional prosecutors.

According to the PGO, the regional department of natural resources and environmental protection, headed by Shevelev, concluded a contract to pass Lake Bolshoi Aktaban in the Petukhovo district, to a fisheries company last year.

The firm invested more than 450,000 roubles in production development. Ignoring this fact, the suspect, without any claims against the company's activity, made the illegal decision to sever the contract and handed over the lake to a businessman without any tender procedures.

A criminal case against Shevel was opened in June 2011 under Article 286 of Russia's Criminal Code ("exceeding of office powers"). The investigation into the criminal case continues.
