Court arrested former Head of Udmurtia Soloviev
An official accused of taking bribes on an especially large scale is placed into custody for two months.
Former Head of Udmurtia Alexander Soloviev was arrested by a court decision for two months on charges of taking bribes on an especially large scale from contractors building bridges in the region.
It is noted that during the hearing the former Head of Udmurtia did not admit his guilt.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, a criminal case against the Head of Udmurtia Alexander Soloviev was initiated under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking by an official holding a public office of the Russian Federation on an especially large scale).
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
