In Chukotka, the ex-chief physician of the district hospital and the former chairman of the district council, Alexander Maslov, is asked to be taken into custody. He is suspected of abuse of office.

According to TASS, initiated the initiation of a criminal case by State Duma deputy Alexander Khinshtein. He reported that Maslov was arrested in Anadyr when he tried to fly to Moscow.

Now Maslov is in the IVS, the Investigative Committee plans to file a petition for choosing a measure for him in the form of detention. However, the defense of the ex-chief physician believes that there are no grounds for this. Maslov did not admit guilt in the alleged acts.

The investigation believes that while working as chairman of the Chukotka Duma, Maslov illegally received bonuses. By doing this, he caused damage to the regional budget. He is also suspected of receiving payments for non-working pensioners. In total, he can receive, according to Khinshtein's data, more than 1,1 million rubles. In addition, his release from work in the Duma allowed him to receive about 2,5 million rubles in compensation for his dismissal. The total damage from his actions is estimated at nine million rubles.
