ULAN-UDE, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case was opened against Sretensk Mayor Yevgeny Verkhoturov in the Baikal territory. He is suspected of major fraud with office abuse.
“The criminal case was opened by the head of the territorial investigation department as the mayor is an official elected from the local self-government body,” a source in the investigation department of the Investigative Committee in the Baikal Territory said on Tuesday.
The detectives found that in the previous year the Sretensk mayor and two heads of commercial structures stole over 1.8 million roubles from the municipal budget.
“In May-June 2011 the directors of the enterprises Zhilkomkhoz Sretensk and Vozrozhdeniye (Revival) in a conspiracy with the mayor signed a false contract on building the already existing heating pipeline in Sretensk. A false acceptance certificate was processed and the mayor authorized it for payment. As a result 1.8 million roubles were transferred from the city budget to an account of the company and the suspects used the money at their discretion,” the source said.
The case files were passed to the investigation department from the economic security department in the Baikal Territory.
