-

The Leninsky District Court of Penza sentenced Alexey Antipov, the former Deputy Minister of Industry, Transport and Innovation for the Penza region, to 2.5 years in a general regime colony convicting him of Swindling (part 3 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and Bribe-Taking (part 3 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

In total, the official received nearly half a million rubles from the local entrepreneur, the press service of the regional administration of the ICR reported.

In October 2017, Antipov offered his patronage to an entrepreneur engaged in inter-municipal passenger transportation for 346 thousand rubles.

The official could achieve a reduction in inspections of road surveillance, as well as mitigation of punishment in the event of fine.

The court and the investigation considered that Antipov did not have such opportunities and did not intend to fulfill the promises, and therefore found him guilty of fraud.

In October 2018, an official received a bribe of 100 thousand rubles for helping the same entrepreneur – he won the competition for the right to carry out transportation on the regular transport route.

After the transfer of money Antipov was detained by law enforcement officers.
