The former senior inspector of the second special regiment of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate’s Road Patrol Service demanded 250 thousand rubles from a driver for not bringing him to administrative responsibility.
The Odintsovo City Court of the Moscow Region sent ex-officer of the Road Patrol Service Mikhail Chufryakov to a general colony for two years for taking a bribe in the amount of 250 thousand rubles, reports the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.
According to the report, the former senior inspector of the second special regiment of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate’s Road Patrol Service on the special route of the Russian MIA’s Main Directorate in Moscow, Chufryakov, was convicted under part 3 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (bribe taking). In addition, the court stripped the ex-officer of his title of a police captain and banned from holding positions in the civil service for a period of two years and 10 months.
As established by the investigation, the former inspector stopped an Audi car on the Road Patrol Service checkpoint on the Rublevo-Uspenskoye Highway in Odintsovo District and demanded the driver to pass a medical examination for alcohol intoxication. The driver refused, after which the ex-policeman asked the man to pay him 250 thousand rubles for not bringing him to responsibility.
It is noted that the transfer of the bribe took place under the control of operational staff.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
