Kamchatka’s fervent anti-corruption advocate allegedly took 2.5-million ruble bribe
The Head of the MIA Anti-Corruption Department offered to a commercial firm accountant a chance to hide in return for money.
The criminal case against the Head of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department of the Russian MIA in the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city was opened under part 3 of Article 30 and part 6 of Article 290 of the Criminal Code (Attempted Bribe-Taking by a functionary through an intermediary in the form of money on a considerable scale). Russia's Investigative Committee for Kamchatka region does not name the suspect.
According to the website of the Kamchatka Regional Office of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department with the regional MIA office is headed by the Police Colonel Sergey Skorokhod.
On September 5, the law enforcement officer is believed to have promised to an accountant with a commercial firm that was being scrutinized for fraud, to suspend the criminal proceedings. It was assumed that during the delay the woman would manage to hide her assets and leave the region. For his assistance the anti-corruption advocate was going to receive 2.5 million rubles.
As reported by the Kamchatka Regional Investigative Committee, on September 12 the accountant sent the money through an intermediary of the MIA Anti-Corruption Department Head. However, the Russian Federal Security Service for Kamchatka region detained the official in the act. The intermediary, who was the senior official's acquaintance, is to face a criminal case on the fact of Mediation in Bribery (part 4 of Art. 291.1 of the Criminal Code).
During the official investigation, the Head of the MIA Anti-Corruption Department has been suspended from official duty performance. If found guilty, he will be dismissed from the service and his leadership will be held disciplinarily liable. Art. 290 of the Criminal Code prescribes a maximum punishment by imprisonment of up to 15 years with a fine of up to 70 times the amount of the bribe.
