Roman Voronin, Managing Partner of RI-Consulting, in an article for Kommersant on the prospects of the criminal case and on the practice of similar trials.
Investigators opened a criminal case against the Deputy Chairman of Orenburg's Property Management Committee, who on June 7 this year was appointed head of the said division. He is accused of taking a bribe on a large scale by an official (paragraphы "a, b, c" part 5, Article 290 of the Criminal Code). This is reported by the regional Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation. Investigators believe that from February 1 to June 6 of this year, the accused received a bribe totaling 275 thousand rubles from the businessman. Otherwise, the official threatened the bribe giver to terminate the previously concluded contracts of municipal property lease.
As the expert notes, "judging by the fact that in relation to the Deputy Chairman of the Property Management Committee of Orenburg the events that occurred just a few days ago are imputed, it means that, most likely, there was an operational experiment and the fact of money transfer is documented by the operational services and in accordance with the law transferred to the investigating authorities. In this regard, this may be the main and sufficient evidence in order to bring a final charge, complete the investigation, send the case to court and subsequently issue a guilty verdict.
The practice of such cases in Russia is that they are mostly sent to the courts, sentences are passed, and people are sentenced to long terms of imprisonment, because the crime they are charged with is a serious one. That is, the punishment can be up to 10 years in prison. As a rule, defendants in such cases are held in custody," - explains the lawyer.
