The retired general and officers of the FSB received terms for fraud

The Russian Themis once again proved its selectivity in relation to the status accused. The General-Major of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and three werewolves from the FSB escaped the deadline from 7 to 10 years in prison.
Unexpectedly gentle punishment The Moscow garrison military court on Wednesday handed the former head of the MUR to retired Major-General Victor Trutnev and his three accomplices - officers of the FSB. They were accused that last year they acted as intermediaries in extorting a bribe in the amount of $ 70 thousand from the general director of the company "Transeco" Yuri Kornilov for stopping his criminal case of fraud. The prosecution asked seven to ten years of imprisonment for the defendants, but the court limited itself to conditional terms.

The basis for such a mild sentence was the requalification of the prosecution for the defendants. "Having studied the materials of the case and the testimony of witnesses, the court comes to the conclusion that the accusation should be qualified according to art. 30 - Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code, "the judge explained. As a result, Major-General retired Viktor Trutnev was sentenced to five years of probation and a fine of 200 thousand rubles.

His accomplices former FSB officers Alexei Vinokurov, Denis Semenov, Artur Yusufov also received suspended sentences - three, four and four and a half years respectively, and fines.

Earlier, all the defendants were charged with bribery mediation (Part 4, Article 291.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), the prosecutor's office demanded from seven to ten years of imprisonment for them in the debate, and Mr. Trutnev was asked by the state prosecutor to fix the biggest punishment.

The criminal case, which involved the officers, was initiated earlier this year at the request of Yuri Kornilov. At that time, Mr. Kornilov was taking part in the fraudulent embezzlement case (Part 4, Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) of 2 billion rubles allocated in 2011-2013 by RZD structures for the disposal of used railroad sleepers that were not fit for repacking. According to the investigation, this circumstance was decided by the Chekists, whom Viktor Trutnev reduced to the victim. During the talks, the investigators say, they offered the businessman to pay $ 70,000 to transfer "to other law enforcement officers" for stopping the criminal case.
