Court dismisses the claims of 5 officials that were held administratively liable

On 2 November 2017, Presnensky District Court, Moscow, considered claims of 5 members of the Commission for developing a regional mandatory medical insurance programme in St Petersburg against FAS decisions on holding Commission officials administratively liable and dismissed the claims in full.

Earlier 16 St Petersburg Commission officials, that voted for making discriminatory decisions on allocating mandatory medical insurance funds, were held administratively liable and imposed an administrative fine.

The grounds for FAS punishing the violators of the antimonopoly law were the decision of the antimonopoly body, the legitimacy and reasonableness of which was confirmed by the Courts of First Instance and Appeal Court.

Deputy Head of FAS Department for Control over Social Sphere and Trade, Mikhail Degtyaryov said: “Officials of the Commission for developing a regional mandatory medical insurance programme in St Petersburg filed a lawsuit as they disagreed to bear personal liability for the decisions made by the Commission. Nevertheless, FAS proved the guilt of each Commission member who had voted for unlawful decisions and the Court confirmed the FAS standpoint”.
