The court dismissed the criminal case against the ex-deputy head of the TINRO-Center in Primorye

The Frunzensky District Court of Vladivostok dismissed the criminal case against the former deputy director of the Pacific Fisheries Research Center (TINRO-Center) Yury Blinov. Previously, he was accused of abuse of office and complicity in this.

As follows from case materials, the court appointed a fine to Yury Blinov and dismissed the criminal case against him.

Yury Blinov was involved in a case on causing damage to 13 million rubles while catching two killer whales. According to investigators, in 2015, the head of the TINRO-Center and his first deputy deliberately ignored the established procedure for conducting competitive procedures for catching sea animals for state forces and transferred permits to catch one of the coastal firms. After the company caught sea animals, the defendants imitated the holding of contests and transferred to the company 13,5 million rubles.

Because of these frauds, community activists from the Freedom to Killer Whales and Beluga whites coalition asked the Russian government to hand over to the Russian Academy of Sciences the coordination of the release of cetaceans from Srednaya Bay in Primorye. For VNIRO and TINRO asked keep only consultative status.
