Deputy Head of KBR Ministry of Agriculture removed from office due to suspicion of bribe-giving
The official is suspected of the mediation in the transfer of bribes.
The Deputy Minister of Agriculture in the Kabardino-Balkaria is dismissed from his post in connection with suspicions in mediation in the transfer of bribes, according to the press-service of the Head of the Republic and the Government.
Regional ICR believed that that the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Nalchik OEBiPK Head extorted a bribe of 2 million rubles for the termination of investigations in relation to the Head of the Department of the Ministry of Agriculture in the KBD. Later, the bribe was reduced to 1 million rubles. The money was to be transferred through their mutual friend, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Republic. After a senior police officer has received the money, all participants in the criminal scheme have been detained. In addition, the Head of the Department of the Ministry, which acted as the briber, lost his office.
Former member of the Federation Council believes that this once again points to numerous violations and falsification of evidence during the investigation of his criminal case on charges of bribe-taking in the amount of 27.5 million rubles ($457 thousand).
