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 federal judge other than retired Catherine Forrest will consider the case of Razhden Shulaya, who is charged with the creation of a criminal syndicate and other crimes, in the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
