In Vinnytsia region police exposed a dubious scheme of procurement of special vehicles
26.02.2013 | 15:32
At the end of last year officials from one
municipal institution of Vinnytsia conducted a tender
for purchase of specialized sanitary vehicles. Six different firms participated
in that tender procedure, though, the winner was a limited liability company
According to the head of
the state service combating economic crimes (SSCEC) of the Ministry of Internal
Affairs of Ukraine in Vinnytsia region Ivan Naumov one of the bidders appealed against that decision. The
complainant motivation was quite convincing: his price offer was the lowest but
the victory went to another one.
By the decision of the
antimonopoly committee it was prohibited to conclude that questionable
contract. But the officials, based on unknown personal considerations, have
ignored those legal requirements and concluded a contract on supply of 158
specialized sanitary vehicles of total value over 13 million!
"interesting" scheme, which has already started the first illegal
supply of vehicles, was broken by police officers of SSCEC. Thanks to their
efforts the contract was terminated and the "left" transfer of budget
funds has not occurred. Currently criminal proceedings have been launched under
Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (embezzlement, misappropriation of
property or capture them by malpractice). Its sanctions provide for punishement an imprisonment for up to 12 years.
