FSB detains head of Tver region's village for bribery
The official should have received 800 thousand rubles ($13.5 thousand) for the accelerated provision of land.
Head of Emmaus village administration in the Tver region, Sergey Tikhonov, has been busted on corruption charges. Employees of the FSB Regional Directorate detained the official red-handed when he was receiving a 100-thousand-ruble ($1.68 thousand) bribe. This is reported by the ICR Investigations Directorate in the Tver region.
Sergey Tikhonov received the money from a bribegiver, who cooperated with the investigation, in his work office. In exchange for a bribe, the official promised to accelerate the procedure for registration and provision of land. In addition, head of the village would assist in underestimation of the appraised value of the land. The 100 thousand rubles were part of the previously agreed amount of 800 thousand rubles.
"The suspect has been detained; the investigator has filed a petition with the court to select a preventive measure against him," the message of the ICR Investigations Directorate's press service says.
A criminal case under item (с) part 5 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (Bribe-taking on an especially large scale) has been initiated.
Sergey Tikhonov heads the party Patriots of Russia in the Tver region.
