TVER, December 31. /ITAR-TASS/. The Moskovsky District Court of Tver on Tuesday will consider a petition of former director of the Moshensky culture centre Ilya Farber for the release on parole, the court press service told Itar-Tass.“Farber, who is now in a detention facility Tver, will also be present at the court meeting,” the district court said.
The Tver Regional Court on December 11 reduced the term of punishment to Ilya Farber to three years with a fine of three million rubles ($91,338). He will serve his sentence in a tight security penal colony.
The Regional Court panel of judges overturned the sentence of Ostashkovsky Municipal Court of the Tver region of August 1 against Farber under Article 285, part 1 of the Russian Criminal Code; the proceedings in this part were terminated because the public prosecutor refused to bring the charges for lack of evidence.
In connection with the termination of criminal proceedings under Article 285, part 1 of the RF Criminal Code, Farber has the right to rehabilitation. In addition, Farber’s actions (bribe taking facts) were re-qualified: the bribe amount was reduced from 300 thousand rubles to 132 thousand rubles.
Artist Ilya Farber left Moscow for the Tver region, where he first worked as a teacher of drawing with children, and then became director of the local Culture Centre. According to investigators, Farber in July-August 2011 received 300 thousand rubles from the director of a commercial enterprise for allowing the contractor to continue the repair work in the Culture House, and a month later received 132 thousand rubles more for the signing of the work completion certificate. In fact, the work was not complete. The investigators believe that by signing of the above certificate, Farber inflicted on the budget of the institution damage amounting to 941 thousand rubles.
