MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) — Criminal proceedings have been instituted in Moscow in connection with fraud in the construction and repair of the Belarus federal highway, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office told Itar-Tass.
An official of the agency specified that the proceedings were instituted based on the materials of the prosecutor’s probe into the misuse of budget funds allocated for the construction and repair of the M-1 highway.
“It was established that the state-run company Russian Highways (Avtodor) and the OOO Interdorstroi company concluded an agreement on the execution of a set of operations on the repair of the M-1 motor road in the Moscow Region, including making the shaping course of fine-grained asphalt mix,” the Prosecutor’s Office said. However, according to the agency, in breach of contract, Interdorstroi did not perform this work. “Meanwhile, the certificates of acceptance of the work were signed by representatives of the company and the Golitsino branch of Russian Highways and a sum of 12.8 million roubles was paid for the works,” the Prosecutor General’s Office stressed.
The audit materials were sent to the investigating authorities for making a decision on criminal prosecution. “The Investigation Department of Moscow’s Central Administrative District police instituted criminal proceedings under Article 159, part 4 of the Russian Criminal Code (fraud),” concluded the Prosecutor General’s Office.
