The head of the regional center is suspected of exceeding powers in Transbaikalia

In the Trans-Baikal Territory, a criminal case was opened on abuse and abuse of office during the construction of a road in Sretensk. The head of the city, Sergei Tonkikh, was detained.

According to the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Trans-Baikal Territory, in 2019 the administration of Sretensk signed a contract with a commercial firm for the construction of a road. The amount of work was estimated at 2,4 million rubles. Despite the fact that the contractor did not complete the work in the amount of 600 thousand rubles, which Sergey Tonkikh knew about, the head of the city signed the acts of the work performed. The contractor received the full amount under the contract. The missing work has not yet been completed.

In addition, the head of the settlement exceeded his authority by giving the contractor permission to use the subsoil - he used sand and gravel mixture from the Sretensky deposit. Such permission is issued only by the relevant regional ministry. In total, the contractor used about one thousand cubic meters of mixture for 300 thousand rubles.

Yesterday Sergei Tonkikh was detained for 48 hours, later the court will choose a preventive measure. Searches were carried out, documents were seized. The investigation of the criminal case continues.
