KHABARVOSK, August 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The administration head of Tygda, Amur region, where more than 100 families turned homeless in a fire this spring, has been indicted, the regional department of the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass.
Nikolai Mamutin is accused of negligence causing death of two or more people by negligence (Part 3, Article 293 of the Russian Criminal Code), the department said.
“The fire in Tygda, which broke out on April 20 and caused large property damage, resulted from Mamutin’s malfeasance,” the department said. The fire destroyed 83 residences and more than 40 other buildings in southern and central parts of the village. Three people died and more than 270 were affected by the fire.
“The Tygda administration head refused to testify. He used the right provided by article 51 of the Russian constitution,” the department said.
The Amur regional authorities pledged to build homes for all the Tygda residents before fall. Eighty-five homes are under construction, including 58 for one family and 15 for two. There will be also a home for five families and a home for eight families.
Amur regional vice-premier Alexander Zhitkov told Itar-Tass that homeless families had moved into 74 homes. The home for eight families will be commissioned next week. All the other homes will be ready before September 15, he said.
Amur Governor Oleg Kozhemyako controls the construction works. Federal and regional budgets are paying compensations to the homeless families.
