New charges brought against former Ufa prosecutor accused of bribery
The FSB Directorate’s officers prepared materials on receiving more than $ 7.500 for promotion.
Investigators added a new charge of bribe-taking to the criminal case against former prosecutor of the Soviet District of Ufa Ramil Garifullin, who is accused of bribery. As the FSB probe established, Garifullin allegedly received 550.000 rubles ($ 8.500) for transferring of the current assistant prosecutors of one of the districts of Bashkiria to Ufa, Ufa1.ru reports.
According to the investigators, in the beginning of 2018, Garifullin’s friends asked him for a “service,” the consent for which turned out to cost a million rubles ($ 15.000). The price seemed to be too high, and, according to the investigators, the defendant lowered the amount of the bribe by half. Having received the money, the ex-prosecutor allegedly asked for another 100.000 rubles ($ 1.500), but again he had to cut the sum in half.
It is to be recalled that Garifullin was detained while receiving more than 5 million rubles ($ 77.000) from a local entrepreneur and deputy of the City Council Vadim Ramazanov. Garifullin’s wife claims that her husband was provoked to take the bribe, and now they are extracting a confession out of him.
