The price of large water. And forests

"Flood" cases promise a wide response

The price of large water. And forests

47 criminal cases were instituted in the Far East in connection with the embezzlement of budget funds allocated to eliminate the consequences of last year's flooding. 

Last week, official information about a massive waste of budget funds during the tragedy in the Far East was held in the media. According to the press service of the State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Far Eastern Federal District, the majority of cases are related to embezzlement and fraud when receiving one-time financial assistance and compensation. Simply put, the money that was collected in the literal sense by the whole world did not reach the victims in full.

Some officials have warmed their hand on the distribution of humanitarian aid, fuel, construction materials in the flood-affected areas. Others operated on a grand scale. Among the largest corruption crimes is the theft of more than 5 million rubles intended for repair work to prevent a flood situation. In addition, according to the media, a criminal case was initiated on the fact of negligence in the performance of their duties by employees of the administration of the city of Shimanovsk in the Amur Region. The officials “did not watch it” - the dam of the Shimanovsk reservoir was destroyed.

"Under the guise of", of course, managed to lead a lot. When it comes to the amounts that are still required to eliminate the consequences of the flood (the Amur and Jewish Autonomous Regions, Khabarovsk Territory suffered the most), then the police are often unable to figure out where the money is going. So the number of "flood" cases, it is quite possible, over time will only expand.

Continuing the review of high-profile corruption cases in the Far Eastern Federal District over the past two weeks, we should focus on a major investigation of the Khabarovsk law enforcement officers. Thus, according to the media, in Khabarovsk, the leader of the criminal group “Black Woodcutters”, who was engaged in illegal logging on the territory of the Nanaian district of the region, was arrested. He became one of the leaders of the Forestry Administration of the Khabarovsk Territory Government. The case is interesting, first of all, not by the amounts, but by the fact that it was the official who organized the organized criminal group.

According to the police, at the beginning of 2010, the official, using his official position, created a criminal community whose members committed serious crimes in the logging sector. Of the nine members of the gang while caught only one, accomplices - in search.

According to preliminary data of the investigation, the community has committed fifteen episodes of crimes, stipulated by part xNUMX, article 3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal logging of forest stands, committed on a large scale by an organized group). The total damage caused to the forest fund of the Russian Federation as a result of the crimes committed by the criminal community amounted to more than 260 million rubles.
