Former deputy head of Sochi police department accused of bribery
Allegedly, for the money, the police officer turned a blind eye to the fact that illegal migrants worked for a local entrepreneur.
Former deputy head of the police department in Sochi Sergey Vladimirsky will appear before the court. Vladimirsky was accused of accepting a bribe of 400,000 rubles ($ 6,200). For the money, the policeman allegedly had to refuse to initiate administrative cases against a local entrepreneur and illegal migrants from Uzbekistan working for him, the press service of ICR’s Investigative Directorate for the Krasnodar Region reports.
The police launched a service probe and fired Vladimirsky. Prosecutor's Office approved the indictment, after which investigators referred the case to court.
According to the latter, Vladimirsky received the bribe in September 2015. The ex-policeman was accused of bribe-taking and inaction (clause “c” of para. 5 of Article 290 CCRF), as well as abuse of official powers (para. 1 of Article 285 CCRF).
In 2018, the official became a founder of a fund that deals with shooting and entrapment of wild animals in a hunting sector he supervises. With that, the official did not report about it to his senior executives.
