Deputy of interdistrict Prosecutor in Orel detained for a bribe of 800 thousand rubles
Oleg Karpenko received money from the representative of the construction company, which came to the attention of the Prosecutor's Office for non-payment of wages to their employees.
The Deputy of the interdistrict Prosecutor in Orel region Oleg Karpenko was detained by investigators and officers of Federal Security Service during the taking of the last tranche of a bribe. According to the ICR Investigation Department in the region, Karpenko received in total 800 thousand rubles from the representative of the construction company, who preferred to pay money to the prosecutor rather than his workers. So the Head of LLC Stroy-project-service was trying to avoid the prosecution under Art. 145.1 of the Criminal Code (Non-payment of Salaries, Wages, Pensions, Stipends, Benefits and Other Payments).
Karpenko took money in several tranches. He received various sums of money from July to August 2016. The funds were transferred to the Prosecutor in person, as well as transferred on his bank card.
According to the Prosecutor's Office in the region, the regional Prosecutor Ivan Polouektov has already fired the Counselor of Justice Oleg Karpenko.
The Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee in Orel region opened a criminal case under part 5 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking in an especially large scale). Karpenko can face up to 12 years in prison.
At the moment, it is solving the matter of his detention.
Despite the fact that the head of the state corporation Rostec claimed he did not aspire to become prime minister in 2017, already in 2018 the media reported that he might join the government after all.
Double-cross system. Why does corruption in Nefteyugansk police lead to resignation of regional high-ranking law enforcers?
Yugra faced another corruption scandal. It turned out that Head of Nefteyugansk police Nikolay Plaksin, along with his chief of the district department Roman Nedyba, 'covered' counterfeit alcohol dealers. Ethnic gang from Central Asian supplied the sheep-dip to the shops throughout Yugra for several years. A criminal case initiated against high-ranking police officers was followed by three more. The rouge cops were first placed in the SIZO, but then released under house arrest. Now the case against them collapsed. But there was another news: the leadership of the regional police faced resignations. Head of the Yugra police Sergey Fisenko has already lost his post. How are these events related? And who will take it on the nose?
