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 from Cherkassy.

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!

This "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.
