Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District Deputy Mayor gets arrested over 1.5-million bribe
The ICR Investigations Directorate in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District pressed criminal charges against the Langepas Deputy Mayor.
According to the Investigative Committee’s public affairs office, the Deputy Mayor is suspected of taking a bribe on a considerable scale.
The Investigative Committee officers searched the public servant’s house and office, confiscating money and documents related to the criminal case opened under part 6 of Article 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale).
The suspect demanded 1.5 million rubles from the CEO of one of the local private companies for providing them services, according to the investigators. He received some of the money (1 million rubles) in June and August.
Early in August, criminal ‘authority’ Yuri Esin a.k.a. Samosval (Dump Truck) has been detained in Moscow. In the 1990s he had a reputation of the ‘godfather’ of ‘Russian mafia’ in Italy and faced 75 years behind bars. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how could the 67-year-old criminal ‘authority’ having close ties with many thieves-in-law escape the Italian justice 20 years ago and avoid any issues with the Russian law enforcement authorities up until his recent arrest.
