MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Serpukhov City Prosecutor’s Office of the Moscow Region conducted an audit, during which it was established that the decision of the representative body of local self-government “On the establishment of monthly compensation payments to deputies of the Council of Deputies of the city of Serpukhov” actually gave the deputies the right to receive cash payments not provided for by law for exercising deputy powers in the amount of 50% from the average wage in the city of Serpukhov.
In this regard, the prosecutor’s office lodged a protest against this decision of the Council of Deputies. At present, the challenged normative legal act has been canceled.
The prosecutor’s office also applied to the court with a statement of claim to recover from 39 former and current deputies the amount of unjust enrichment in the amount of 9.8 million rubles.
By a court decision, the claims of the prosecutor’s office were satisfied.
