The Federal Penitentiary Service filed a claim for 2.2 billion rubles against the ex-director of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Alexander Reimer, who was sentenced to eight years in prison in the case of fraud with electronic bracelets.
Business FM was informed about this by the court press secretary Emilia Gil. “The court received a lawsuit from the Federal Service for the Execution of Sentences to recover from Reimer and three convicts compensation for the crime,” she said. According to the press secretary, the consideration of the claim is scheduled for June 28.
According to her, Alexander Reimer, Nikolay Krivolapov, Victor Definedov and Nikolay Martynov are co-defendants in the claim.
On June 14, 2017, the Zamoskvoretsky Court of Moscow sentenced the former head of the prison department Alexander Reimer to eight years in prison with a fine of 800 thousand rubles. His former deputy, Nikolai Krivolapov, received five years and eight months in prison with a fine of 600,000 rubles, and ex-director of the state center for information technology support and communications, Viktor Definedov, was sentenced to six years in prison with a fine of 700,000 rubles. All defendants were stripped of their general ranks. At the same time, the district court excluded the fact of abuse of office from charges against Reimer and Krivolapov.
The defendants were found guilty of fraud (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) in the amount of 1 billion 258 million rubles. According to the investigation, the money was stolen in 2010-2012 from funds allocated to the Federal Penitentiary Service from the budget to provide the department with electronic control systems for controlled persons (electronic bracelets). The purchase of these systems was carried out at several times overpriced prices.
Subsequently, the Moscow City Court recognized the sentence as legal, but released Reimer and two other convicts from paying fines.
The first verdict in the case of embezzlement in the purchase of electronic bracelets was pronounced on June 30, 2016. Then the Moscow Zamoskvoretsky Court sentenced Nikolai Martynov, general director of Meta LLC, to three years and eight months in prison with a fine of 500 thousand rubles. According to the investigation, it was he who gave more than 140 million rubles in cash to the director of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Alexander Reimer, for his help in embezzling budget funds. Martynov pleaded guilty, his case was considered in a special order. On September 25 this year, the Preobrazhensky Court of Moscow released the businessman on parole. Alexander Reimer has been in jail since March 31, 2015. He denies guilt.
