Another scandalous corruption-related revelation came to public in Moscow yesterday. Deputy Head of the Gagarinsky Inter-District Investigative Department of the Moscow Main Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, suspected of taking a bribe of 4.5 million rubles, has been detained. The Kommersant reports that Aram Abramyan, 38 years old, was arrested in his office on Leninsky Prospect.

The investigation believes that the investigator decided to "make some extra cash" while handling a criminal fraud case against a commercial company. For a reward, the "turncoat" promised to get certain persons "off the hook" and received a bribe from them.

A criminal case against Abramyan based on Part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Taking bribe of especially large scale by governmental official) is under investigation. The suspect immediately started collaborating with the investigation and submitted a resignation letter, which was approved by the superior authorities on the same day. The court has taken these facts into consideration and decided not to hold Abramyan in detention, limiting pre-trial restrictions to home arrest.

Interestingly, lieutenant-colonel Aram Abramyan investigated the death of Andrey Sokolov, a 19-year old member of the Russian national sambo (art of self-defense) team in 2012.
