Kaluga traffic police officers caught on bribery
In Obninsk, the Kaluga region, two inspectors of the State Traffic Police are accused of bribe-taking.
According to investigative bodies, the traffic police officers had stopped a driver for an ID check. It turned out that he did not have a driver's license, as it had been previously revoked for traffic rules violation. Then, the policemen offered him a deal, namely 100 thousand rubles for avoiding to call him to administrative account.
The corruption had become known to the regional law enforcement agencies, and the offenders were detained. A criminal case under item a part 5 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (Bribe-taking on a large scale committed by a group of persons by previous concert) has been initiated against the traffic police inspectors.
The investigation into the criminal case is ongoing; the investigating authorities are establishing all the circumstances of the offense.
First, Georgy Agapjanov, whose corpse was found on Novoslobodskaya Street of the capital, was named an entrepreneur. Now it is assumed that the killer mistakenly killed the driver instead of the owner of the car.
On Malta, on October 14, journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who accused the family of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat of corruption on the basis of Panama Papers materials, was killed. She was 53 years old.
