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.
A new person turned out to be complicit in the high-profile incident in the center of the Russian capital that involved some thieves in law, mafia bosses and pop stars. It is Magomed Ismailov, the famous MMA fighter.
In the Irkutsk region a scandal connected with information about the arrest of deputy chairman of the administrative court Nikolay Novokreshchenov due to $134.155-bribe-taking runs high; Sergey Shishkin, an adviser to the region's Governor, mentioned it on the radio interview. The court the detention of the deputy chairman is refuted, but unofficial sources in law enforcement structures confirm.
