Acting Head of St. Petersburg Transport Police takes bribe from Russian Railways official
Lieutenant Colonel Frolov promised to provide his "general patronage” for 250 thousand rubles.
The Investigative Committee spoke about the arrest of Lieutenant Colonel Roman Frolov, the Acting Head of the St. Petersburg’s MIA Transport Department.
According to investigators, it was a Russian Railways employee that the Transport Police official had taken a bribe from the day before, as opposed to a businessman, as it had been previously reported. Lieutenant Colonel promised to provide his "general patronage” for 250 thousand rubles. No motive or details of the corruption case have been disclosed yet.
The St. Petersburg’s Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case under part 5 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking).
It has also been said that the security forces detained Frolov together with one of his subordinates Andrey Dokuchaev from the Department of Economic Security of the Transport Police. Sources claim that the operative gave his boss a lift to the place where he was supposed to collect the bribe. The Investigative Committee is yet to announce whether a criminal case would be initiated against Dokuchaev.
Presently, the court is considering Frolov’s verdict.
