In St. Petersburg, a court sentenced the former deputy head of the Krasnoselsky district administration to five years in a strict regime colony for accepting bribes.
According to the city’s prosecutor’s office, the former official received more than 9 million rubles for signing acts of acceptance of work on cleaning the city’s inner-quarter territories and concluding government contracts with one of the commercial organizations. The money was transferred to him by her director through an intermediary, who at that time held the position of deputy director of the housing agency of the Krasnoselsky district.
In addition, the convict also received bribes totaling over 2.2 million rubles from two management companies – in particular, for ensuring the transfer of residential buildings under their management.
In addition to imprisonment, the court sentenced the former official to a fine of 10 million rubles and deprivation of the right to work in the civil service for three years.
The verdict has not yet entered into legal force.
