In the Irkutsk region, the house arrest of the former head of the Ministry of Health Natalia Ledyaeva was extended for two months. She was detained on November 30, 2020 on charges of fraud in the procurement of personal protective equipment

According to TASS, the measure of restraint was extended by the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk. House arrest, according to the latest ruling, will last until July 10, 2021.

Natalia Ledyaeva is accused of large-scale fraud. Before arrest, at the beginning of November 2020, she left post of Minister of Health. Together with her, four more defendants in the criminal case will appear before the court.

According to the investigation, the ex-minister, her son and three other people received from the budget of the Irkutsk region about 25 million rubles in the execution of a state contract for the supply of medical masks and respirators. At the same time, the delivered products did not meet the terms of the contract.

Regarding the supply of masks, another case was opened in Priangarye in October 2020. In total, six businessmen pass along it, including the son of Ledyaeva, Ivan Belousov. As part of this case, three medical institutions were assigned falsified masks worth 40 million rubles.
