The swindler came up with a home birth so she could be paid compensation
The Moscow City Court has dropped the criminal prosecution of two women who deceived social services in order to receive child benefits. Themis decided that it was enough to punish them with a court fine, and closed the criminal case.
As MK learned, the fraud with pseudo-births was carried out by a mother with many children, who at the time of exposure had six children. There was always not enough money, and she decided to “give birth” to another child, but only on paper. Together with her friend, the heroine mother came to the MFC in November 2022. The women purchased a medical certificate for home birth via the Internet. A friend confirmed that she was present at the birth of a new person and even acted as an obstetrician. As a result, the fictitious child was registered, and the deceiver managed to receive benefits for him for three months. In total, the heroine mother stole 45 thousand rubles from the budget.
The Golovinsky court sentenced both women to a hefty fine, but the higher authority came to the conclusion that for mothers with many children (the accomplice has four children) this is too severe a punishment. As a result, the criminal case was closed.
