Head of ICR Moscow Transport Department arrested for bribery along with accomplices
Dmitry Korovin gave the criminals evidence on their case in exchange for 1 million rubles ($15,250).
Head of the ICR Moscow Interregional Investigations Directorate of Transport Dmitry Korovin has been sent under arrest by the Presnensky Court for receiving a large bribe (part 5 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code).
Korovin has been detained along with his subordinate Aleksandr Ashurkov and Crimean lawyer Aleksey Nevzorov on Saturday.
They have been arrested until July 30.
According to the investigation, officials of the ICR Moscow Interregional Investigations Directorate of Transport colluded with the lawyer to receive a bribe from the person involved in the criminal case for the previously seized evidence on their case, which was handed over to the criminals.
On May 20, Nevzorov received a bribe of 1 million rubles, which he and Korovin and Ashurkov shared.
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.
