The already former deputy head of the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography Segei Sapelnikov, who, being a carrier of state secrets, in early September went abroad without the permission of the FSB and the Ministry of Economic Development, has become involved in the case against negligence, which stirred up the Investigative Committee against him. If the former official won't voluntarily return to Russia in the near future, he may be accused and arrested in absentia and declared internationally wanted. Experts, however, believe that nothing threatens Sapelnikov in the current situation.

The leadership Rosreestra and security forces still do not have accurate data on the location of the now former Deputy Minister Sergei Sapelnikov. More September 7 Russian official left in a car, allegedly went to the Ukraine, and from there to the United States. The reason for this are the results of a recent test Rosreestra auditors of the Accounting Chamber and the FSB, which revealed a multibillion-dollar financial irregularities.

The officer was in charge of the ministry sphere of IT-infrastructure and IT-technologies, and cartography, which in the framework of the Federal Program subprogram "Creation of real estate cadastre system" Auditor of the AccountsSecond Chamber revealed major financial irregularities.

After escaping Sapelnikova investigators several days deciding the question whether there are grounds to attract former officials criminally responsible and for what the article of the Criminal Code. Sources of "News" in the police said that the Investigative Committee opened against former officials a criminal case under Art. 293 of the Criminal Code ( "negligence"). This article provides for punishment by a fine or up to three months of arrest.

- The article "Negligence" - stillborn, and are rarely used in practice, because it refers to trudnodokazuemym. In fact, she says that man made a mistake and unknowingly committed a crime. It is such aTatya-vent, to soothe people, to show the investigation work on high-profile cases, saying that something is being done - told "Izvestia" lawyer Vladimir foal. - Of course, no one ever will declare the person internationally wanted on such a small article, search for it, and even more so taking into custody. Therefore, the official can relax and live comfortably abroad.

The audit revealed financial irregularities amounting to 23.9 billion rubles, including misappropriation of funds in the amount of 2.5 billion rubles.
