Ex-Director of the Yakutsk Vodokanal extended the measure of restraint
The ex-director of the Yakut "Vodokanal" extended the measure of restraint. The court did not satisfy the appeal and left Nikolai Zhestkov under house arrest.
According to the press service of the Supreme Court of Yakutia, accused of abuse of power, Zhestkov asked to change the preventive measure to a softer one. The reason was the treatment in the cardiology department of the National Center for Medicine.
The defense also argued that the accused is a pensioner, voluntarily compensated for the material damage caused and has not previously been convicted. Despite this, the court left the ex-director of Vodokanal under house arrest.
According to investigators, the former director of the Yakut Vodokanal signed a contract with the Geyser company, whose director was his spouse, to supply drinking water from a well for 20 years in advance. From 2009 to 2017, the company spent more on water purchases from the “Geyser” 30 million rubles. At the same time, there was no production and economic need for the transaction. Fully accused pleaded guilty.
