Investigator was sentenced to eight years for bribe of $ 1 million
The Izmailovo Court of Moscow sentenced the investigator Sergey Sergeyev to eight years in prison for taking a bribe of 1 million dollars.
Today, the Izmailovo Court of Moscow found the former ICR employee Sergey Sergeyev guilty under part 3 of Article 30 and part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code (Attempt to Bribe-taking for omission and Extortion of bribes on a large scale) for accepting a bribe of 1 million dollars. In addition, Sergeev was stripped of all honors and the right to hold a position in law enforcement within three years.
The investigation proved that Sergeev, using his accomplice’s connections, exerted pressure on one of the commercial banks, threatening it with constant checks. For the smooth continuation of the work the investigator demanded to transfer 1 million dollars to his account in a Latvian bank.
Sergeyev was caught red-handed during a special operation in 2015. Now, the court is considering the case against his accomplice.
Despite the fact that the head of the state corporation Rostec claimed he did not aspire to become prime minister in 2017, already in 2018 the media reported that he might join the government after all.
Double-cross system. Why does corruption in Nefteyugansk police lead to resignation of regional high-ranking law enforcers?
Yugra faced another corruption scandal. It turned out that Head of Nefteyugansk police Nikolay Plaksin, along with his chief of the district department Roman Nedyba, 'covered' counterfeit alcohol dealers. Ethnic gang from Central Asian supplied the sheep-dip to the shops throughout Yugra for several years. A criminal case initiated against high-ranking police officers was followed by three more. The rouge cops were first placed in the SIZO, but then released under house arrest. Now the case against them collapsed. But there was another news: the leadership of the regional police faced resignations. Head of the Yugra police Sergey Fisenko has already lost his post. How are these events related? And who will take it on the nose?
