Arrest for corruption protection Technoserv

Detention

On July 10, 2019 Alexey Ivanov was delayed by law enforcement officers on suspicion of taking of a bribe (Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), reported to TAdviser two sources. According to one of them, detention was preceded by seizure of documents in RPF and also at offices of his IT contractors - in the companies "Technoserv" and Redsis.

One of interlocutors of TAdviser says that detention happened before the declaration of the tender for development of a key information system of the Pension fund - [1] the single state information system of social security (SSISSS). Contract volume, according to him, could be about 1.5 billion rubles.

The Pension fund told TAdviser that necessary assistance is rendered investigating bodies. The fund operates normally.

Technoserv considers that carrying out investigative actions at offices of the company is connected with activity of a team of the former chairman of the board of the company Alexey Ananyev.

«
In our opinion, carrying out investigative actions at offices of Technoserv is caused by injurious management style of the former management. In the past it brought Technoserv to critical condition therefore it was necessary to discharge the owner from management, and law enforcement agencies make investigation. New management in every possible way cooperates with them for the purpose of establishing order and stabilization of a situation in the company, - told TAdviser in Technoserv

In Redsis say that on July 10, 2019 to them law enforcement agencies made the inquiry relating to conducting business activities by the company. In response to the arrived request Redsis provided all necessary documents.

«
Let's specify that to Redsis LLC company at authorities neither to, nor after receipt of a request of claims is not present, - the representative Redsis reported TAdviser. - The company operated normally and continues to work.

Earlier in 2019 sources of TAdviser said that Ivanov was going to leave the post in RPF.

The second defendant in the case - the head of department of work with state agencies of Technoserv company Alexey Kopeykin

On July 11, 2019 TAdviser also knew of criminal proceedings concerning the director of the department of work with state agencies of Technoserv Alexey Kopeykin. He is suspected of mediation at bribery (Part 4 of Article 291.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

«
During pretrial investigation it is established that for commission of especially serious crimes against the government and the interests of public service by Ivanov M.A., Kopeykin A.M. and other unidentified persons used servers and office equipment located in office spaces in the commercial organization "Redsis" to the address: Moscow, Rochdelskaya St., 15, building 43, said in the resolution on carrying out a search of July 9, 2019 signed by the Head of the investigation team of the Main Investigation Department of Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation captain of justice Maskaltsov G. V.

The investigator decided to carry out a search at office "Redsis" to find and withdraw the objects and documents important for criminal case.

Kopeykin as of July, 2019 was an employee of Technoserv, his acquaintance confirmed to TAdviser. "Ivanov M.A.", whose name appears in the resolution, this is the vice chairman of the board of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation Ivanov Alexey Mikhaylovich, told a source. It connected an error in initials with the fact that the document prepared in a hurry.

Alexey Kopeykin was delayed by law enforcement agencies on the same day, as Alexey Ivanov.

Ivanov and Kopeykin were brought to the central office ICR in Tekhnichesky Lane. There the captain of justice Grigory Maskaltsov announced to persons involved in investigation that they are suspects.

Recognition of fault and resignation

On July 12 it became known that Alexey Ivanov admitted the guilt and resigned from a post of the deputy head of the Pension fund. The responsible secretary of Public monitoring commission of Moscow Ivan Melnikov told about this TAdviser.

The TASS agency reported later that Ivanov admitted guilt in taking of a bribe for protection of Technoserv company in the amount of 4.4 million rubles. On July 12 in Basmanny Court of Moscow the investigator reported about it.

As the corruption scheme was arranged

According to the investigators, in 2017 the bank card of Promsvyazbank issued addressed to the employee of Technoserv Alexey Kopeykin was transferred to Alexey Ivanov. Monthly within nearly two years Technoserv transfered 200 thousand rubles to this card. In total, thus, 4.4 million rubles were paid.

Ivanov reported the investigation that from its party it were not bribes, and fraud as he did not render services to Technoserv for this money.

According to whose instruction money was transferred, officially it is not set, Kommersant specifies. The investigation, however, does not exclude that it was the ex-co-owner of Promsvyazbank Alexey Ananyev who was earlier heading Technoserv group and discharged of the management at the end of 2018.

Ananyev, according to a source of TAdviser, left Russia several months ago and lives in Austria.

Kopeykin's protection insists on his innocence as "he did not know what happens to his bank card".

The source of TAdviser believes what knew several people about the corruption scheme. Part of them, first of all, former employees of Technoserv, could be interested in its disclosure since they work in the competing companies now and competes to Technoserv in tenders of other state departments. But there are interested parties both in RPF, and in other departments, persons interested to strengthen influence on large financial flows around IT systems of fund, the source is sure.

Appeal of the decision on arrest

Shortly after Basmanny Court made the decision Alexey Ivanov's conclusion in the pre-trial detention center, his lawyers asking to choose for the client a measure of restraint in the form of house arrest filed the petition for appeal. Announced the registered complaint of TAdviser in Basmanny Court on July 16. Its consideration should take place on July 31.

A complaint was filed by the lawyer Kidyaev. In addition to him the lawyer Anas Elmurzayev on whose account - participation in a number of unique criminal cases is engaged in Ivanov's case. Read more here.

Alexey Ivanov is not lagged behind also by the manager of Technoserv Alexey Kopeykin passing the suspect on the same matter. Basmanny Court told TAdviser that its protection will also try to appeal against the decision of the first instance on detention. Consideration of this complaint is planned for July 29.

According to Basmanny Court, a complaint was filed by the lawyer Yurasova N.K. In court of first instance in addition to it Kopeykin's interests were represented by two more lawyers - Glukhov A.N. and Perov A.V. The source close to Technoserv told TAdviser that initially Technoserv provided to Alexey Kopeykin "one of the best lawyers of Moscow", but, after interaction with it, Kopeykin decided to involve other specialists. The source did not specify a name of the lawyer from Technoserv.

The court did not release under house arrest of Alexey Ivanov

On July 31, 2019 the Moscow City Court considered the petition for appeal of lawyers of Alexey Ivanov on the decision of Basmanny Court who sent it to the pre-trial detention center on the case of a bribe till the end of the investigation. Protection asked to change a measure of restraint to Ivanov to house arrest, but the court upheld the solution of the first instance. In the solution which was announced by the judge Silina, it is said that Ivanov will remain in the pre-trial detention center till September 9.

Consideration of the complaint of lawyers of Alexey Ivanov in Moscow City Court began with a delay almost for four hours. Ivanov participated in him by video conference from the pre-trial detention center.

During court it was mentioned that Alexey Ivanov was transferred to the status of the investigator accused according to the petition. Earlier it was involved in case in the status of the suspect.

The representative of prosecutor's office Meshcheryakova in court supported the complaint of protection of Alexey Ivanov about change to it measures of restraint on house arrest.

In turn, the investigator considered it necessary to remand Ivanov in custody. He considers that the defendant did not admit guilt.

Ivanov's interests in court were represented in total by three lawyers. Anas Elmurzayev famous for the participation in a number of unusual criminal cases is key (is more detailed here). He is the main defender in the case of Ivanov who builds a defense line.

The lawyer Ivan Kidyaev in court expressed a position that the decision of Basmanny Court on Ivanov's conclusion into custody illegally and unreasonably. He reasoned it with the fact that the chosen measure of restraint is applied only when other measures of restraint are disabled. But in case papers there is no basis for Ivanov's conclusion into custody, the lawyer considers.

Kidyaev in detail painted in what the exceptional circumstances requiring the detention described in the legislation are expressed: when the defendant can disappear, interfere with a course of investigation, continue criminal activity, threaten participants of the investigation and destroy documents. In a case with Alexey Ivanov, the lawyer believes, these bases are absent.

Also, the defender considers, the court did not consider such circumstances as the identity of the suspect, presence of property at it in Russia and elderly parents-veteratov of work whose health now in a serious condition and also presence of the minor granddaughter at it to whom he gives support. According to him, there are no bases to consider that Alexey Ivanov can abscond.

The lawyer asked court to change a measure of restraint to Ivanov to house arrest in the place of its actual housing - in Balashikha where he lived with the parents before arrest.

The lawyer Anas Elmurzayev gave to court positive characteristics of the defendant as decent citizen and, as well as his colleague, noted that the court of first instance at decision-making was based only on weight of crime.

The third lawyer emphasized that Ivanov has no opportunity to continue criminal activity as he already left the post in the Pension fund. He added that his client will be under house arrest in a certain place all the time and will be available to a talk with the investigation. And conditions of the pre-trial detention center can negatively affect his health.

=Ivanov's position: I am guilty, I confirmed receiving money

Ivanov, addressing court, expressed consent with arguments of defenders and asked to consider their request for change of a measure of restraint.

«
I gave to investigating bodies all documents confirming my personality (the Russian and foreign passports, the certificate of the reserve officer, - a comment of TAdviser) and also wrote the withdrawal letter from work in RPF. I understand senselessness of the idea to abscond, especially in conditions when my aged parents (83 and 85 years), bed patients stay at home, - Ivanov told. Also continued: I issued surrender. I confirmed receiving money. So, I cannot put any pressure upon witnesses any more. I understand that I can expect only attenuating circumstances. I promise to promote the objective investigation. Yes, I am guilty. The court will make the decision concerning punishment. Now I ask not for myself, and for parents – to soften the blow received by them
»

During the debate Ivanov did not agree with a position of the investigator and said that at execution of the protocol of surrender he did not provide some information, having given the obligation to make it later, and it cannot be treated how refusal to admit guilt.

In the concluding remarks Alexey Ivanov told:

«
What occurred - it was serious misconduct for my part. First of all, in relation to the state to which I truly served for many years. Once again I confirm the intention to cooperate with the investigation in full
»

Having listened to the decision of the judge on failure in the satisfaction of the petition for appeal, Ivanov kept external calm, did not begin to react emotionally to the proposal of lawyers on the writ of appeal stated right there, only asked to encourage his spouse – she was not present at the hall because of serious emotional condition, expected the solution behind conference hall doors.

=Comments of the lawyer: we are going to appeal against the decision on detention

The lawyer Anas Elmurzayev told TAdviser that Ivanov in the pre-trial detention center has no phone, meetings only with the nearest relations and the lawyer of times in two weeks, owing to capacity of six cabins for appointments in the Lefortovo isolation center are resolved it.

According to Elmurzayev, in the case papers available to the lawyer, there is nothing that indicates justification of a measure of restraint in the form of detention for Ivanov. But materials of operational search activity are not declassified yet, lawyers of access to them have no, he added in a conversation with the correspondent of TAdviser.

«
According to those case papers which are known to us the measure of restraint was selected by too tough. It is selected only when other measures of restraint can be effectless. I am sure that house arrest is an adequate measure of restraint, - he told
»

By experience of the lawyer Elmurzayev, in similar affairs pre-investigation actions last about a year. During this time suspects can be let out from the pre-trial detention center: someone in 2 months, whom - through 7. It depends on when the court considers that the suspect will not be able to have an impact on the investigation any more. And it in a situation when detention was initial is proved, unlike the current business, the lawyer emphasized.

Ivanov's protection is going to file the writ of appeal about the decision on the conclusion it into custody. Anas Elmurzayev expressed joy that the representative of prosecutor's office supported their position.

Earlier, on July 29, the Moscow City Court did not release under house arrest of the manager of Technoserv Alexey Kopeykin which also takes place the suspect on the same matter.
