Deputy head of the Moscow metro police is suspected in taking a 5 million bribe
A high-ranking policeman promised his acquainted to solve his problem with a criminal case - to make an agreement on retraining. As a reward for this favor, Smirnov asked 5 million rubles.
A large corrupt scandal is revealing in the Moscow’s metro management.
According to the investigation, deputy head of the 8th Branch of the Administration of MIA in the metro Evgeny Smirnov entered into a criminal conspiracy. The high-ranking policeman promised his acquainted to solve his problem with a criminal case – to make an agreement on retraining. As a reward for this favor, Smirnov asked 5 million rubles. It was expected, that part of this sum would be allocated to the problem’s solvation and other part should have stayed in the hands of the policeman as a reward.
However, Evgeny Smironv has not seen the money. During covert operation, policemen managed to detain Smirnov’s accomplice, when he was handing the bribe. The detained gave testimony telling for whom and what for was this sum. Over the bribery on a large scale the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation initiated a criminal case under article «Receiving a bribe on a large scale». Deputy head of the 8th Branch of the Administration of MIA in the metro Evgeny Smirnov was fired from the internal affairs bodies.
It should be recalled, that it was not the first case of bribery in the Moscow metro police. In February 2016 deputy head of the Administration for Private Security of the Moscow metro police Stepan Georgiev was detained. According to the investigation, he was covering a shady business of the capital’s metro system for two years.
Recently it occurred, that President of Russia Vladimir Putin released the head of the Administration of MIA in Moscow metro system police, major-general Igor Bozhkov, of his post as a defendant of «confiscated property case».
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
