ULAN-UDE, March 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The criminal penal of the Supreme Court of Buryatia upheld a guilty verdict to the former republican deputy interior minister Konstantin Akalelov, who was found guilty of abuse of power. “The court ruled that Akalelov at the post of the chief for logistics of the Buryatia Interior Ministry and having the right of financial signature, paid 965,000 roubles to the Redut Ulan-Ude company for a Ford car delivered for the Interior Ministry in late December 2009,” the press service of the Buryatia prosecutor’s office told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The Sovetsky District Court of Ulan-Ude found the high-ranking police officer guilty of abuse of power and fined him for 70,000 roubles.
Akalelov was a member of the team of the former Buryatia interior minister Viktor Syusyura accused of smuggling in Buryatia. However, in March the Russian Investigation Committee terminated the criminal case against Syusyura over the decriminalization of this article on non-exonerative grounds. It is reported that Viktor Syusyura insists on the full rehabilitation and the probable continuation of the police service.
Syusyura was appointed as Buryatia’s Interior Minister in March 2006, before this he headed the Azov-Black Sea transport police department. In October 2009 he was detained in Ulan-Ude and was brought to the Moscow detention centre Lefortovo. During the investigation he was suspended from the post and dismissed in February 2010.
