GORNO-ALTAISK, September 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Regional finance minister of the Altai Republic Svetlana Gashkina has been convicted on Monday for bribing a worker of the Federal Execution of Sentences Service. A district court of the Altai Republic administered a 250,000 rouble fine to the defendant.
The investigation established that Gashkina turned over a bottle of cognac and some chocolate to a worker of the Altai regional department of the Federal Execution of Sentences Service for arranging a meeting with her nephew, Yevgeny Metsker, kept in custody without a consent of the investigation bodies. The meeting was arranged at the detention center in the settlement of Kyzyl-Ozek of the Maiminsky district.
Yevgeny Metsker-Director of a meat enterprise in the Altai region, is under prosecution on charges of embezzling budgetary funds allocated in support of the development of entrepreneurship in the Altai region.
