The Investigation Administration of the MIA of Russia Administration for the Kaluga Region completed the investigation of a criminal case instituted on the basis of elements of the crime provided for in part 4 of Article 160 of the RF Criminal Code. The sanction of this article provides for a punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to ten years.
In the course of an unscheduled audit of one of the organizations conducted by the officials, a discrepancy was revealed in the financial reporting documents, which served as the basis for filing a relevant application with law enforcement bodies.
During the investigation it was established that a 46-year-old local resident, being the chief accountant, in the period from April 2015 to June 2017, used her official position for the theft of funds of this institution through misappropriation.
Without the coordination of her actions with the employer and without informing the management, the woman arbitrarily accrued to herself an overestimated salary, material assistance and vacation payments. The money was transferred to the bank card belonging to the suspect.
As a result of the deliberate actions of the chief accountant, the institution suffered a material damage totaling more than 2 million 600 thousand rubles.
At present, the defendant’s property is seized. The materials of the criminal case with the approved indictment were sent to court for examination on the merits.
