Previously, the leadership of one of the companies engaged in the retail and wholesale of petroleum products, told the police about the lack of fuel, which was identified during an inspection conducted by the organization’s security service.
“As a result of the operational-search measures, the police found that a group of workers used a malicious computer program in the control systems of the filling stations. The underfilling was at least 5% of the paid volume of petroleum products. Associates sold stolen fuel to third parties. At the time of the test, the program was turned off, ”said Irina Volk.
