Bryansk region: ex-Head of district OEBiPK jailed for 8 years for bribery
The corruption-fighter extorted 3 million rubles ($51 850) for the mitigation of criminal responsibility.
Former Head of the Sevsk district MIA Anti-Corruption Department (OEBiPK in the Bryansk region) Alexander Davydkov is convicted on charges of Attempted Swindling (part 3 of Art. 30, part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code) and Bribe-Taking (item (c), part 5 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code) by the Navlinsky District Court.
The court sentenced the former Police Major to 8 years in a strict regime penal colony and a fine of 2 million rubles. In addition, the court forbade him to hold positions in the police and the civil service as a representative of the authorities for two years.
The court found that for the sum of 3 million rubles Davydkov promised to mitigate the criminal responsibility, although by virtue of his official duties he could not affect the court's decision.
According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Bryansk region, Davydkov was detained during a special operation of the FSB and the MIA BIA on May 12, 2016 while receiving a bribe from the victim in the amount of 200 thousand rubles ($3456).
Also, the investigation revealed that in the summer of 2015 Davydkov received 200 thousand rubles from the same person as the first tranche of a bribe of 500 thousand rubles. After this, the district department lost materials on the possible involvement in the deliberate bankruptcy of a commercial organization. The General Prosecutor's website reported that Davydkov is dismissed from the police and deprived of the rank of Major.
