Former Vladivostok Mayor Igor Pushkarev, sentenced to 15 years in prison in a corruption case, was escorted from a prison in the Primorsky Territory to Khakassia. This was announced by the chairman of the regional Public Monitoring Commission (PMC) Vladimir Naydin.

“Yesterday, members of the public monitoring committee, together with representatives of the FSIN GU in the Primorsky Territory, visited the colonies, including the correctional institution where Igor Sergeyevich Pushkarev was. Until the last moment he was employed and worked for a month, there were no complaints against him. About a week ago, at the request of the Prosecutor General, he was transferred to a colony in Khakassia, ”Vladimir Naydin told EastRussia.

According to him, according to the law, upon arrival at the place, the convict can notify his family and friends of his whereabouts by phone or in a letter. When Pushkarev is taken to a new place of detention, it is not known, as Vladimir Naydin noted, usually transportation takes about a month. At the same time, Pushkarev has the right to challenge the decision to transfer to another colony.

“When he is brought to the colony, we will contact the local PMC in Khakassia to visit Pushkarev when they visit this colony, learn about his health condition and inform his relatives,” said Vladimir Naydin.

Igor Pushkarev was transferred to a maximum security colony in another region at the request of the Prosecutor General. Supervisory authority found relief in content in the territory of the Primorsky Territory.

In April 2019, Igor Pushkarev sentenced to 15 years maximum security colonies for distributing federal money between companies controlled by themselves. In May last year, the Prosecutor General’s office prepared a lawsuit against Pushkarev and his accomplices 3,2 billion rubles... In March of this year, the court satisfied the claim, but the amount decreased to 1,452 billion rubles.
