to Victor Timashovu of 46 years. He was born in Chelyabinsk, has there and then ended teacher training college. However the teacher of history has worked not for long - has moved in commerce. Already in 97 - the m has held fast of the deputy director « CHeljabenergo ». And in 2001 - the m became a right hand of the governor. In the government of area Timashov supervised the industrial policy and was responsible for state property. As the representative of the power was included into board of directors « CHeljabinskuglja » « Ural Automobile Plant » and « CHeljabgipromeza ». And still sat in an armchair of the vice-president of regional association of employers « PROWEIGHTS ». However, after a judicial alarm it have re-elected.

Five naive questions on Victor Timashova`s business  

1. Why on the official have got criminal case

in 2004, for orthodox Christmas, field investigators have caught red-handed the courier who has received a bribe for Victor Timashova. When have pulled for a thread, it has appeared, pobor was not the first. Under the charge version, for two years the official has grown rich on 6 million 767 thousand roubles. For this money it attached budgetary orders for geological prospecting in those firms which agreed to pay recoil. Thus the personal gain of Timashova from the good bargain at times reached 60 percent from a total cost of works!

2. For what have denounced

the Chelyabinsk regional court considered case since February, 2006. 148 witnesses are in this time interrogated.

As a result of the official have denounced for reception of bribes in especially large size (item 290 of the criminal code of Russian Federation).

3. As wanted to punish and that has turned out in practice

Charge asked to give Timashovu of 12 years of prison. However two years to it have knocked off on softening circumstances: at Victor Timashova bad health (when business has become known, the official with heart attack has fallen ill in hospital), the state awards (truth, them now have selected) and the juvenile child (the kid was born already during the investigation).

However, business was not limited to a colony. The denounced official should pay the penalty (750 thousand roubles) and to return to the state all bribes. Most likely, them take from the arrested bills of Timashova. Besides of it have deprived of all official ranks and have forbidden three years (after an exit from prison) to be on civil service. The full text of a sentence occupies 346 quires!

4. As behaved accused on court

While case was considered, nobody tried to hide the official for a lattice. From it simply took a subscription about nevyezde. All this time Victor Timashov led usual life, and instead of work (officially it is in an indefinite leave) went on judicial sessions. However yesterday him have arrested and have brought to one of the Chelyabinsk pre-trial detention centres. Probably, having a presentiment of it, Timashov has brought on sentence announcement the big sports bag with things. However, the fault the defendant and did not recognise. And its lawyer promises to appeal against sentence.

5. Who is still connected with « business about geological prospecting »

Together with were vitse - the governor on a dock helpers have got. It the chairman of committee on prirodoresursnomu to a complex Edward Vagin and the chairman of board of directors « Southern - the Ural mining company » Alexander Losev. The first left a hall « dry » its fault is not proved. And Losev has repented and has received five years conditionally (it it was the courier for ill-starred Christmas).
