Deputy Head of Moscow Internal Affairs Dept suspected of taking 1m-ruble bribe
According to law enforcement sources, the deputy chief for the operational work of Moscow Chertanovo Severnoye PD had been soliciting a bribe promising to drop criminal charges in return.
As reported by TASS, the police major was detained on September 29. According to investigators, he took 1 million rubles ($17.300) from a mediator promising there would be no further prosecution of his friend under Art. 158 of the Criminal Code (Theft). The policeman is accused of committing an especially large-scale swindling as part of an organized group.
The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that the suspect would be dismissed from the bodies and his superiors would be disciplined.
The long-term confrontation between respected in the criminal world thief in law Badri Koguashvili (Badri Kutaissky) and the punitive system has recently resulted in another information leak. A video (in fact, just a slide show) has been uploaded on YouTube with a narrative implying that Koguashvili – posing as a thief-in-law of the old school – violates the thieves’ code himself.
The documents for Alexander Kukovyakin’s petition were all prepared, but the former deputy of Yekaterinburg City Duma and the former Uralmash leader suddenly refused to use the opportunity to leave the colony before the end of his term.
