На Ямале бывший работник территориального отдела Роспотребнадзора осужден за получение взяток

Сегодня, 29 июня 2016 года, Надымский городской суд Ямало-Ненецкого автономного округа вынес приговор по уголовному делу в отношении главного специалиста-эксперта территориального отдела регионального Управления Федеральной службы по надзору в сфере защиты прав потребителей и благополучия человека в Надымском районе Андрея Егорова. Он обвиняется в совершении преступлений, предусмотренных пп. «б, в» ч. 5 ст. 290 УК РФ (получение должностным лицом лично взятки в виде денег за общее попустительство по службе, совершенное с вымогательством, в крупном размере) и ч. 2 ст. 290 УК РФ (получение должностным лицом лично взятки в виде иного имущества, в значительном размере).

В суде установлено, что Егоров в феврале 2016 года вымогал у представителя компании взятку в размере 50 тыс. рублей. В случае отказа он обещал принять меры к возможному лишению лицензии. Представитель компании, поставленный в безвыходное положение, согласился с предложением и в служебном кабинете передал Егорову требуемые денежные средства.

Кроме того, с сентября по октябрь 2014 года при проведении административного расследования по обращению гражданина специалист вымогал у представителя предпринимателя, осуществляющего лицензируемую деятельность по заготовке, хранению, переработке и реализации лома черных и цветных металлов взятки в размере 90 и 70 тыс. рублей. В случае дачи взятки Егоров обещал в дальнейшем оказывать общее попустительство по службе, заключающееся в минимизации последствий проверок и лояльном отношении к предпринимателю. Денежные средства в размере 90 тыс. рублей представителем предпринимателя были переданы лично Егорову, а 70 тыс. рублей – перечислены на его банковскую карту.

По требованию Егорова за минимизацию последствий результатов проверки представитель еще одной организации передал лом черного металла массой около 10 тонн, от продажи которого сотрудник территориального отдела получил 35 тыс. рублей.

Суд с учетом позиции государственного обвинителя приговорил Егорова к 8 годам лишения свободы с отбыванием наказания в колонии строгого режима.

Кроме того, он лишен права занимать должности в органах государственной власти и органах местного самоуправления, связанные с исполнением организационно-распорядительных и административно-хозяйственных функций сроком на 3 года.

Бывший государственный гражданский служащий взят под стражу в зале суда.

Mittwoch, 29. Juni 2016
Kulturstaatsministerin Monika Grütters hat heute in Berlin die Fachkonferenz „Den Opfern einen Namen geben – Gedenken und Datenschutz im Zusammenhang mit der öffentlichen Nennung der Namen von NS-Opfern in Ausstellungen, Gedenkbüchern und Datenbanken“ eröffnet.

Grütters erklärte vor zahlreichen Vertretern aus den Bereichen Forschung, Archivwesen, Gedenkstätten und Opferangehörigen: „Von einem Einzelschicksal zu erzählen heißt immer, es der monströsen und unfassbaren Abstraktheit reiner Opferzahlen zu entreißen. Deshalb ist die Diskussion über die namentliche Nennung von Opfern des Nationalsozialismus, insbesondere der Opfer der NS-‚Euthanasie‘, so wichtig. Einerseits wollen wir den Opfern ihre Identität und ihre Würde zurückgeben. Andererseits dürfen wir dabei die legitimen und schutzwürdigen Interessen insbesondere vieler Angehöriger nicht ausblenden.“

Grütters: „Es ist notwendig, dass wir für diesen schwierigen Aspekt unserer Erinnerungskultur gemeinsam Grundlagen erarbeiten, die einen konsensfähigen Umgang mit den Namen und Daten der NS-Opfer möglich machen – sowohl für die künftige Benutzungspraxis im Bundesarchiv als auch für die Verwendung der Daten in der Arbeit der Gedenkstätten. Das wäre hilfreich und wertvoll für die gesamtdeutsche Erinnerungskultur, die den Opfern des Nationalsozialismus ihren Namen und damit ganz im Sinne Thomas Manns – ‚ ein Stück des Seins und der Seele‘ wiedergeben möchte.“

Anlass für die Konferenz ist eine beim Deutschen Bundestag eingereichte Petition („Bundesarchivgesetz – Den Opfern der NS-Euthanasie ihren Namen wiedergeben“). Die Konferenz, die von der Staatsministerin angeregt wurde und aus ihrem Haushalt finanziert wird, wird veranstaltet von der Stiftung Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas und der Stiftung Topographie des Terrors in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Bundesarchiv.

Towards clean and smart mobility

Headline: Towards clean and smart mobility

The EU’s transport sector depends on oil for 94 % of its fuel. It is clear that decarbonising Europe’s transport sector will take time. It requires a combination of measures, including better urban planning, technological improvements, and a wider use of alternative fuels. But it can be done and we know how we can make it happen. Cleaner and smarter transport can actually meet Europe’s need for mobility and at the same time deliver many public health benefits, including cleaner air, fewer accidents, less congestion and less noise pollution.
EEA Executive Director Hans Bruyninckx

EEA Signals 2016 – Towards green and smart mobility goes beyond the data and statistics on transport, giving an in-depth explanation of the key facts and trends, the environmental challenges facing transport, and the green choices we have to ensure cleaner modes of moving around.
Transport underpins our modern society and economy. At the same time, it is responsible for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions, and causes air pollution, noise pollution and habitat fragmentation.
The European Union has already taken measures to mitigate the effects of transport pollution, and it has launched work on ambitious plans to create a low-carbon economy by 2050. These plans include making sure transport plays its part in reducing emissions.

Cleaner and smarter transport can actually meet Europe’s need for mobility and at the same time deliver many public health benefits, including cleaner air, fewer accidents, less congestion and less noise pollution,” says EEA Executive Director Hans Bruyninckx.
Signals 2016 includes articles focusing on the state of Europe’s transport sector, its impact on public health, the issue of food miles, aviation and shipping, plus an interview on how cities can plan for smart mobility and climate change.
The EEA publishes Signals annually in an easy-to-read format exploring key issues of interest to the environmental debate and the wider public.

Phone call between the HR/VP, Federica Mogherini and the Foreign Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida

Headline: Phone call between the HR/VP, Federica Mogherini and the Foreign Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida

The High Representative/Vice-President, Federica Mogherini, spoke this morning with the Foreign Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida to discuss the outcome of the UK referendum, the EU Global Strategy and EU-Japan bilateral relations.
The High Representative discussed with the Minister the next steps following the outcome of the UK referendum, stressing that for now, the United Kingdom remains a full member of the European Union, with all the rights and obligations that derive from this, including in the fields of foreign and security policy. The High Representative expressed her belief that the EU and the UK would continue to work as closely together as possible in the future.
The HR/VP thanked her counterpart for his personal contribution to the EU’s Global Strategy, which was welcomed by the EU Heads of State and Government at the European Council meeting yesterday. Minister Kishida and the HR/VP agreed that the world needs a strong and united Europe and that the EU, Japan and like-minded partners must maintain their common work for a rules-based international order.
Finally, the High Representative/Vice-President and the Foreign Minister discussed issues of regional and bilateral importance, including looking ahead to the ASEM Summit in Mongolia, the recent adoption of the EU’s Joint Communication on China, and the importance of working towards the swift conclusion of the EU-Japan Strategic Partnership and Free Trade agreements.

Press release – Update EU’s long-term spending plan to cope with crises, urges Budgets Committee – Committee on Budgets

Headline: Press release – Update EU’s long-term spending plan to cope with crises, urges Budgets Committee – Committee on Budgets

The EU needs to update its long-term spending plan to cope with unforeseen crises such as mass migration, terrorism and youth unemployment, says the Budgets Committee in a resolution voted on Wednesday. The text is intended as an input to the forthcoming EU Commission’s proposal to revise the EU’s multiannual financial framework (MFF) for 2014-2020. The update should also tackle the recurring backlog of overdue EU payments, and look beyond 2020, add MEPs.
The MFF must be made more flexible to enable the EU to respond promptly to crises not anticipated at the time of its adoption, such as the migration and refugee crisis, terrorism and internal security issues, the crisis in agriculture or persistently high unemployment, especially among young people, say MEPs.
The MFF mid-term review, which the Commission must prepare before the end of 2016, should acknowledge that the MFF has been pushed to its limits over the past two years, and its size should match the challenges facing the EU say MEPs.
Unity of the budget and crisis reserve

MEPs note that the shortage of resources has forced the EU to set up ad hoc instruments financed jointly by the member states, the EU budget and the EU Development Fund (the Madad Trust Fund and the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa) and the Refugee Facility for Turkey.
They argue that this proliferation of instruments, in the absence of an overall budgetary strategy for dealing with crises, creates a problem of accountability and democratic control in the EU. They also deplore the fact that member states have so far largely failed to deliver their expected contributions to the trust funds, which undermines their success.
MEPs propose that a permanent EU crisis reserve should be created within the EU budget to avoid ad hoc solutions and the setting up of trust funds. This mechanism for responding to unforeseen events should operate as a new special instrument over and above the MFF ceilings, they say.
Own resources and payments backlog
MEPs voice strong support for the European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI), but stress that the EU should not finance new initiatives to the detriment of existing EU programmes and policies such as Horizon 2020. They also strongly favour pursuing the Youth Employment initiative (YEI). Similarly, if the European Development Fund or ad-hoc instruments are added to the EU budget, then the MFF will need to be revised, in order not to jeopardise the financing of other EU policies and programmes.
MEPs also call for the introduction of one or several new “own resources” a reformed VAT, a Financial Transaction Tax, a reformed EU Emissions Trading System and the phasing out of all forms of rebates.
They reiterate that payment appropriations are the consequence of past commitments and say that the mid-term revision of the MFF is an opportunity to prevent a recurring payments backlog by taking stock of payments implementation and providing a clear strategy to meet all payment needs.
Budgets Committee MEPs stressed that the changes agreed as part of the MFF mid-term review should be implemented without a delay and included in the budget for 2017. They also asked that, without prejudice to the outcome of future negotiations with the UK, the European Commission should “promptly” brief them on the budgetary implications of the Brexit vote.
 
Next steps

The committee text will be put to a vote by Parliament as a whole at the July plenary session.
