MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - Former head of the northwestern department of the Federal Agency for Fisheries /Rosrybolovstvo/ Sergei Muravyev has been sentenced to six years and a 50-million-rouble fine for taking bribes.
"The court found him guilty of taking large bribes and forgery," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
The investigator said Muravyov, with the view of illegal occupation of executive position, submitted an employment record book with falsified information about his five-year working experience in specialty, and was appointed director of Rosrybolovstvo's northwestern department in 2009. In the period from 2010 through 2011, he forced his subordinates to step down and replaced them with persons who had no experience or skills to work in fisheries conservation. Supposedly, the defendant received 26 million roubles of bribes from newly-appointed executives.
Muravyov was detained together with his aide in St Petersburg on May 25, 2011, as he was taking a five-million-rouble bribe for settling human resources issues. He was initially released on a five-million-rouble bail but then placed under house arrest. He has been in custody at a pre-trial detention center since July 11, 2011.
