Deputy Head of Barnaul Interior Ministry Affairs to spend 8.5 years in jail for $38.500-bribe
For a bribe, Andrey Arestov promised to condone one of the suspects in the fraud case.
The Deputy Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Barnaul, who headed the Investigation Department, Andrey Arestov was convicted for Bribe-Taking (item (c), parts 5 and 6, Article 290 of the Criminal Code).
The investigation and the court found that Aristov had offered a local businessman, whose name had not been disclosed, to give him a bribe for lifting the arrest from the property in the fraud case. In addition, a senior policeman promised to terminate and no longer renew a criminal case against the suspect. For his services, the Head of the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs asked for 2.2 million rubles ($38.500). The mediator in the transfer of a bribe was his acquaintance, retired policeman of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Valery Selivanov. In the period from May 2016 to January 2017, Aristov received the previously agreed amount in full. However, when the last part of the sum was received, the FSB officers detained Arestov and his accomplice.
As a result, the Oktyabrsky District Court of Barnaul sentenced Andrey Arestov, the Deputy Head of the city's Ministry of Internal Affairs, to 8.5 years in a strict-regime colony, and Selivanov to 3.5 years.
The accused fully admitted their guilt and repented.
