Head of Crimean Krasnoperekopsk administration arrested over bribery
Head of Krasnoperekopsk City Administration Igor Yatsishin has been arrested for two months for bribe-taking.
This preventive measure has been elected by the Kievsky District Court of Simferopol.
According to Senior Assistant Manager of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate for Crimea Evgeniya Belikova, the court granted the application of the investigative bodies and ordered 2-month arrest of Igor Yatsishin.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, Igor Yatsishin was arrested in Crimea on April 4 when receiving a bribe of 350 thousand rubles from a businessman. In exchange for the financial 'gratitude', he had promised to assist the entrepreneur in concluding a lease contract for municipal premises, which he had intended to use for commercial purposes.
A criminal case under part 5 of Art. 290 (Bribe-Taking) of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against Yatsishin. The investigation continues.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
