Novosibirsk. August 28. INTERFAX-SIBERIA – The prosecutor’s office approved an indictment in a criminal case against Elena Khrustaleva, the former head of the territorial body of Roszdravnadzor in the Novosibirsk region, and two local residents, the regional prosecutor’s office reports.
“The former leader is charged under part 1 of article 286 (abuse of power), part 3 of article 159 (fraud), part 3 of article 30 – part 3 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (attempted fraud)”, – the message says.
The second defendant is accused of using a forged document and attempted fraud and fraud, the third – of attempted fraud.
According to the investigation, in September 2021, the head of the TO of Roszdravnadzor, in September 2021, without carrying out the necessary procedures and concluding an employment contract, allowed the second accused, previously known to her, to perform the functions of a state civil servant for the position of senior state inspector of the department for organizing control in the field of circulation of medicines and medical products.
Then he was appointed head of the financial, legal and personnel support department.
“The second defendant, for the purpose of official employment for the position, submitted to the personnel service of the authority a fake diploma of higher education, acquired from persons unidentified during the investigation,” the report says.
Also, the former head and the second defendant entered into contracts with a friend of one of them for paid services for cleaning the premises of the territorial administration, but the work under these contracts was not actually carried out.
The defendants stole the money intended to pay for the work performed under the contracts and disposed of it at their own discretion.
In addition, the former leader, together with the second defendant, intended to fraudulently steal budget funds in the amount of almost 600 thousand rubles intended for payment under a state contract for the provision of motor transport services.
“To do this, they found a third defendant – the director of a commercial organization, with whom they entered into a criminal conspiracy,” the report says.
After that, the accused, as the head of the TO of Roszdravnadzor for NSO, concluded a state contract, knowing for sure that in fact services would not be provided under it.
Thus, the defendants, by drawing up fictitious acts of acceptance of work performed under the contract, stole about 200 thousand rubles, but did not bring their criminal intentions to the end.
In addition, the second defendant intended, using his official position, at the expense of budgetary funds allocated for the maintenance of the TO of Roszdravnadzor for NSO, to repair the property belonging to his wife, but he could not complete the intent, since he was detained by law enforcement officers.
The criminal case was sent for consideration on the merits to the Central District Court of Novosibirsk.
