The Leninsky District Court of Perm has finished and announced the verdict against the First Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Perm Territory Roman Koksharov. He was accused of committing crimes under Part 1 of Art. 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (abuse of office) and Art. 289 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal participation in entrepreneurial activity). He was sentenced to two years of suspended imprisonment with a one-year probationary period, as well as a fine of 200 thousand rubles. From the payment of a fine, which was assigned to commit a crime under Art. 289 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, Mr. Koksharov was released due to the expiration of the statute of limitations.
As the investigation and the court established, Mr. Koksharov committed illegal actions in 2017-2019. In 2017, the official instructed the head of the Gainsky district of the Kama region to declare an emergency regime in the municipality without any grounds for this. This decision made it possible to organize the purchase of two boats for 18.4 million rubles. from the regional budget without a competitive procedure. Also, for several years, Roman Koksharov was involved in the management of the construction company DSK Magistral LLC. This company has been awarded contracts for road repairs, stadium renovations and the construction of a school playground.
Roman Koksharov himself did not plead guilty during the preliminary investigation and the court and intends to appeal the verdict in the appellate instance.
