New bribery case brought against ex-mayor of Petropavlovsk
A new bribery case was opened against the former head of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The case includes four corruption crimes.
According to the press service of the RF IC for the Kamchatka Territory, a criminal case has been initiated on bribery when concluding municipal contracts for the improvement of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Former Mayor Vitaly Ivanenko is serving a sentence in a penal colony on a corruption case.
According to the investigation, in the period from May to August 2018, a representative of one of the commercial organizations transferred two million rubles through intermediaries to the head of Petropavlovsk as a bribe for unhindered work on the improvement of the city, priority in concluding municipal contracts in the future and general patronage. One of the mediators was the mayor's brother, Aleksey Ivanenko.
At the end of last year, the court appointed the ex-mayor of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky five and a half years in prison for taking a bribe of 700 thousand rubles from the general director of a commercial enterprise. In addition, he must pay a fine of four million rubles.
In the course of the investigation, information was revealed on another bribe totaling 1,4 million rubles, but the ex-mayor received only 200 thousand of this money, because part of the transferred funds appropriated his intermediary brother. He hit first under criminal prosecution.
