“I went up behind and touched my bra.” Details of the story about a Perm teacher who was given 9 years for harassing a student

– It is difficult to build forecasts, but I believe in the best. I feel sorry for mom, she is very worried, it has been going on for more than a year, – said “KP» 49-year-old math teacher Valery Syropyatov and, with a sigh, he entered the courtroom.

On Monday in the Ordzhonikidze court Perm the teacher was sentenced under the article “Violent acts of a sexual nature”. The sentence is 9 years and 6 months in a maximum security colony.

“The girl begged the three”

This ugly story happened in March last year in a Perm school. According to the teacher, she looked like this:

– In the seventh grade, where the girl studied, I taught mathematics for the first year. In the first quarter, she deceived me, I believed and put the “troika”. But there must be an educational moment. I told her that now she will hand over all the work in the sequence in which they are studied. And until we get to the control for the third quarter, the final mark at her will not be!

On that day, March 27, several students came to the mathematician to take the “tails”.

“Everyone sat at their desks and did the work, and once again she decided to slip away,” the teacher continues. – I began to ask myself, said that her stomach ached, her head … I insisted: “Decide the control, get your” threefold “and you can step on all four sides. If it’s inconvenient for you to study in the classroom – the children are noisy – let’s go to another office. ” We left, she stood at the table and again began to whine. I sit at the table and tell her: “Go, decide!” The man does not leave, I waved. I am sitting, she is standing – where will i get? Here in the belt on the side with the back of the hand and hit. It turned out cotton. I admitted this, and was removed by the director from teaching in this class. I apologized and believed that the incident had been exhausted.

Soon, the information got into law enforcement. First, criminal proceedings were instituted for Art. Art. 135 of the Criminal Code RF “Depraved actions”, and after six months the investigations were re-qualified as more serious, Art. 132 “Violent acts of a sexual nature.”

At each meeting, teachers supported

To the court – at each hearing in the Valery case Syropyatova – a support group gathered: former graduates, colleagues, parents of students … 17 of them acted as witnesses from the defense. They all said that they could not believe the guilt of their beloved teacher. He does not smoke, does sports, organizes excursions around the Perm Territory and cities for children Of Russiaorganizes competitions in rogain, tourist trips, alloys, fees …

Despite all the kind words spoken to the defendant, the state prosecution requested 13 years of imprisonment for him.

Valery Syropyatov on the day the sentence was announced, we met near the courthouse. He was light, without things. As the teacher himself explained, he believed that the court would figure it out and justify it.

“I’ve already checked in, now I’ll take a little walk, breathe in fresh air, mentally tune in and go,” he explained before entering the courtroom.

Despite the fact that the process was closed, the journalists and the support group were allowed to announce the verdict.

It was impossible to understand what the teacher experienced at that moment when the judge said “nine and a half years in a maximum security colony”, the teacher’s face was hidden under a mask. And the former graduates and colleagues who were present at the announcement somehow immediately went down. Someone could not hold back tears.

– Do you understand the verdict and the procedure for appealing against it?

“Yes, your honor,” the convict answered calmly.

At that moment, three escorts entered the courtroom. Knowing the rules of staying in places of deprivation of liberty — the teacher spent three days in a pre-trial detention center while the investigation was under way — the teacher began to unfasten his belt in order to remove it, took money from his pockets, a cell phone and gave it to a relative. The guards locked handcuffs on his hands, and asked all those present to leave the courtroom.

I closed and he pushed my hands away

– The criminal case was considered in closed court, so we can’t explain the details, you heard the verdict, the evidence that the prosecution presented to the court was enough to plead guilty to a particularly serious crime against the sexual integrity of a minor, therefore the sentence so big – said assistant to the prosecutor of the Ordzhonikidze district of Perm, Dmitry Shishkin. – And that slap, and the version that the defendant himself told everyone about, including in the media, is a way of protection.

As it became known to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” from a source familiar with the materials of the criminal case, one of the evidence presented in court was the correspondence of the seventh grader with his girlfriend in social networks. Late in the evening on the day of math retaking, the schoolgirl wrote to her close friend that she was at school, and the teacher took her to a separate office, put her at her desk, walked up behind and began to touch her bra.

“I sat at the table, he was at the back and was pawing me,” she wrote. – I tried to close my hands, and he pushed his hands and touched me by the chest.

Experts examined the girl for bruises and the only thing found on her body was a small scratch on her finger.

The accusation was also based on the words of the girl, her mother and friend. Investigators also found a video from school surveillance cameras, which shows how one of the schoolgirls told Valery Nikolaevich that she had passed the debt, and he leaned over and began to say in her ear that she was good. This was interpreted later as a kiss.

During the investigation, a forensic medical examination was carried out, the biological traces of the teacher on the things of the victim were not found. The teacher was also tested for a tendency to pedophilia, but the result was negative.

The government ordered police officers to inform relatives or loved ones of the detainees about their hospitalization or first aid. This is stated in the resolution of the Cabinet, published on the official portal of legal information.

The amendments will supplement the government decree of April 16, 2012 “On approval of the provision on the conditions of detention, food standards and the procedure for medical care of detainees in the territorial bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation”. It says that upon the conclusion of an ambulance doctor, detainees can use medicines that are stored on the territory of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and issued by the police in the manner prescribed by doctors.

The new decree supplements this paragraph (No. 27) with a requirement for police officers to inform the relatives or close person of the detainee “as soon as possible” that he was given first aid or about his hospitalization. At the same time, police officers must transmit information to relatives no later than 24 hours from the moment when the person was given first aid or when he was hospitalized. The exception in this case is a serious illness, injury, injury or death of the detainee. In such situations, police officers must transmit information to relatives and the prosecutor “immediately, but no later than 3 hours” (paragraph 28 of the 2012 government decree).

Prosecutors warn that being affected by an ERTE means having ‘two payers’ in the income statement | My rights

The nearly four million workers affected by an ERTE from Covid-19 could be scared next year when they file their income tax returns. The reason is that, for tax purposes, they will have two payers in the 2020 personal income tax campaign, with the practical consequences that this usually has. The first problem is that, surely, they will have to present the declaration, even when their income does not exceed the legal limit; the second is that it will probably pay you. Experts warn about this issue, which may have gone unnoticed by many workers who have been forced into an ERTE.

Changing jobs, combining jobs or becoming unemployed are the usual situations in which workers receive income from two or more payers in the same year. This circumstance influences, in the first place, the tax obligations of the taxpayer, and, furthermore, may affect the result of the tax return at the time of its presentation.

When is there a second payer?

As a general rule, explains Marcos Escoda, a tax expert at Marimón Abogados, it is considered that there are two or more payers for tax purposes “when income is received from entities that have different tax identification numbers (NIF).”

Unemployment benefit is, like payroll, income from job performance, and Social Security is considered one more payer for tax purposes. This same rule applies to benefits received by workers at ERTE. As confirmed by Miguel Ángel Galán, partner of Andersen Tax & Legal, “if SEPE or another public body satisfies us with any remuneration, it is considered to be a payer for personal income tax purposes”.

Other cases in which the Administration becomes a second payer are, for example, when the worker retires once the year has started, or when he receives the benefits of FOGASA (Salary Guarantee Fund) because his company is insolvent.

They will have an obligation to declare

Having been affected by an ERTE by Covid-19, it can suppose that a worker who, under normal conditions would be exempt from filing the income tax return, has to fill it out. Without taking into account other assumptions, the law establishes that there is only an obligation with the treasury if 22,000 euros or more are paid as income from work during the year. However, this limit drops to 14,000 euros when the worker has collected from two or more different payers, and, in addition, the amount paid by the second (and other payers) exceeds 1,500 euros.

It is relatively easy, therefore, that those workers who have been for two or three months in an ERTE have an obligation to file the income tax next year despite having an income of less than 22,000 euros.

Income result

One of the most common problems of having two or more payers in the year is that the result of the income statement returns positive numbers. It is quite frequent in cases of receipt of wages and unemployment or other benefits during the same tax period. “You have to see the specific case, but yes, it could go out and pay,” Galán predicts regarding the workers at ERTE.

Having two or more payers does not imply having to pay more personal income tax, but it can mean that an adjustment must be made with the treasury when the return is filed. In the end, the result depends, among other things, on whether the employer has withheld the appropriate percentage in anticipation of payment of the tax on the worker’s payroll.

The issue is that the second or subsequent payers calculate the withholding that they apply to the payroll based on the compensation they will pay until December 31. By not taking into account everything that the worker receives throughout the year, they will normally have a lower withholding rate than would be the case if all that had been previously charged was taken into account, explains Leandro Sequeiros, a partner at Lean Abogados.

As the SEPE (Public State Employment Service) applies a minimum withholding on the money paid to workers in unemployment or in ERTE, it is probable that the amounts not withheld will have to be adjusted with the Treasury at the time of making the income statement , that is to say, that this one leaves to pay.

Unless a new type of withholding is communicated to the new employer that takes into account what he has earned up to that date and what he will earn from then until December 31, explains Sequeiros, “the normal thing is that you go out to pay in the statement of income”.

However, Galán points out, we must not lose sight of the fact that, in the end, the same taxes are paid for the same income. It is, he explains, “a matter of liquidity and financial effect”, what is known in tax law and economics as the theory of financial illusion.

Can I stop him from paying me?

Regardless of the circumstances of each taxpayer, workers who receive income from two or more payers can ensure that this fact does not harm them in their income statement.

One way to avoid the consequences of applying a lower withholding on this income is to request the second payer to modify the rate. According to Sequeiros, there are specific forms, depending on the administration from which the income comes, through which a type of voluntary withholding higher than that calculated by the administration itself can be communicated.

However, the new type of withholding requested will apply, at least until the end of the year. In addition, it will remain in force in subsequent years if it is not waived in writing or another superior is requested. On the other hand, if, finally, the statement comes out, it is important to remember that the Treasury allows the personal income tax to be divided into two payments.

Solutions proposal

The possible negative tax consequences of being included in an ERTE have not gone unnoticed by the tax advisers, who have submitted their proposals in this regard.

The Spanish Association of Tax Advisers (AEDAF) circulated a note a few days ago proposing that these incomes be exempt for, they explained, “trying to ensure the liquidity of these people who see their income reduced to 75% of the contribution base.” On the other hand, they advocated establishing an express exception so that the application of the ERTE did not suppose the existence of two payers for the purposes of the tax, and thus avoid that many taxpayers have the obligation to file a declaration in addition to the withholding adjustment problem.

The FOEG is asking local authorities to reduce their tax burden on closed businesses

The Federation of Business Organizations of Girona (FOEG) calls on the local authorities of the district as city councils and county councils to reduce the tax burden on those businesses that have had to close due to the state of alarm. In particular, it demands that taxes be alleviated like the IBI, ethe one of the rubbish or the one of the terraces.

In this sense, the employer explains that the measure is focused on companies in the service sector, many of them linked to the world of hospitality and trade which have been closed for more than two weeks. With this reduction, the FOEG says that it would be possible to guarantee or even improve the liquidity of many of these businesses and to make it easier to overcome the crisis.

Specifically, the president of the entity, Ernest Plana, calls for postponement of occupancy payment, and has to do with the terraces of bars and restaurants. From the FOEG they also bet that the town councils will return the proportional part that corresponds to the time they have not been open. At this point, it is also claimed that these catering companies can adjust the demand for public spaces that they use to real needs, given the fall in consumption.

In relation to waste collection, the employer in Girona claims that local authorities “take into account” the reduction that may occur due to the fall in activity as a result of the alarm state.

Finally, the FOEG requests a deferral and division of taxes such as that of the IBI. All this, together with help for the self-employed and small and medium-sized businesses in the payment of water bills.

Pressure on the Spanish government

EIn a letter to its associates, the Girona employer says that they are “pushing” the Spanish government to suspend the payment of taxes and taxes such as VAT, personal income tax or social security contributions, for those companies that have been most affected by the decline in activity and consumption.

The letter also charges Pedro Sánchez’s executive, who he describes as “insensitive” with SMEs and the self-employed, reminding them that “they are being demanded of the same as for large companies”, which puts them at risk its activity.

The letter concludes by remembering the “strong weight” of tourism in the counties of Girona and “the many sectors that depend on it”. “In general, in the district, all sectors are suffering, but it is especially worrying the effect that the current situation can have on the trade and tourism sector,” he says.

Girona companies ask for a tax moratorium and three months without paying Social Security

Les chambers of commerce in the counties of Girona see “measures” taken by the government as “inadequate” Spanish, in order to help companies in the coronavirus crisis. All three – Girona, Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Palamós – have claimed one widespread tax moratorium. In fact, they consider this an “essential” measure to deal with, and remember that the main problem for companies is that they have “no liquidity”. In this sense, they consider bank guarantees “not enough” and ask that they be expanded in order to solve their treasury problems. In addition, they also claim to pay the Social Security dues for three months for both the self-employed and the SMEs that retain their employees.

Another measure they claim is defer payment of loans, mortgages, rents and supplies by vulnerable businesses. The aim is that they can maintain their viability despite the crisis situation. In relation to the treasury, the chambers are committed to grant microcredits of up to 4,000 euros for freelancers and up to 30,000 to companies that request them.

The President of the Girona Chamber of Commerce, Jaume Fàbrega, recalls that the vast majority of family-owned and self-employed businesses, which represent 90% of the economic structure of the Girona region, “need measures that are more economical in scope. the oxygen needed to overcome the onset of this crisis “

For his part, his Palamós counterpart, Pol Fages, emphasizes that “the main concern of entrepreneurs is to be able to meet our economic obligations on the 31st and demand the prompt reaction of the Administrations”. For this reason, it considers the measures to provide liquidity important.

In the same vein, Eduard Bosch, President of the Chamber of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, has called for measures to “give concrete and direct support to microenterprises, entrepreneurs, freelancers and SMEs”.
