Bryansk: Ex-commander of specialized traffic police platoon caught on bribes
The ICR in the Bryansk region has completed the investigation of a criminal case initiated against the ex-commander of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate's prompt-response specialized platoon of the regional MIA office.
The former police officer is charged with major and minor bribe-taking (part 2 of Art. 290 and part 1 of Art. 291.2 of the Russian Criminal Code).
The investigation discovered the police officer's crimes when investigating a criminal case against five of his subordinates; all of them had also been caught on bribe-taking.
According to the investigative bodies, September 26 last year in Pochep, the police officer received, via mediator, 100 thousand rubles ($1.7 thousand) as a bribe from a drunk driver.
In addition, on January 15 this year, the accused police officer was stationed on the road 'Bypassing the city of Bryansk', where he also took a bribe – this time of 3 thousand rubles ($52), for releasing a driver who had violated traffic rules.
The criminal case with the approved indictment has been referred to the court for further consideration on the merits.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
According to the head of the state-owned company, the Russian business “rebuilt the country,” “restored the collapsed Soviet enterprises,” “returned the salary to the people,” “filled the budget with money.”
