MOSCOW, 31 /TASS/. Alexander Reimer, the former head of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/, has been detained on fraud charges, the Russian Investigative Committee said on Tuesday.
"Today, investigators have brought fraud charges against FSIN’s former director Alexander Reimer; his former deputy Nikolai Krivolapov; Viktor Opredelynov, director of FSIN’s center for IT support and communications; and Nikolai Martynov, the general director of a commercial organization," Vladimir Markin, the Russian Investigative Committee spokesperson , told TASS.
