MIA Chief Investigator detained for $85.000-bribe he took from man accused in theft
The senior police officer was detained in his workplace.
Major Vyacheslav Pak, the MIA Chief Investigator in Moscow’s Yakimanka district, has been detained on suspicion of taking 5 million rubles ($85.000) as a bribe, reported REN TV referring to unnamed sources. According to the information posted on the website, the Major was detained by FSB officers in his office.
Authorities are yet to name the bribe taker and the size of the bribe.
According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Yakimanka employee was detained "on suspicion of accepting illegal monetary compensation" from a citizen accused of theft (Art. 158 of the Criminal Code). In return, the Major promised to provide overall protection to the accused. Most likely, what he meant was dropping the charges.
The suspect is going to be dismissed soon, and his superiors are going to be reprimanded, noted the Moscow MIA.
The authorities are yet to report on the initiation of a criminal case against the policeman.
