Prosecutor General’s Office gives image of typical corrupt official
A white-collar criminal is characterized by the combination of positive qualities, says the supervisory authority.
An average corrupt official is a family man of 40 years old with a higher education, without bad habits, hardworking, energetic, sociable, initiated, restrained, complying with the rules of public order and not causing any suspicion. Such an opinion about the white-collar criminals was given by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation.
“They are ready to work a lot, they have a high degree of self-control,” said the representative of the supervisory authority, Alexander Kurennoy, in a program aired on the TV channel Efir.
According to Kurennoy, most often, the causes of corruption crimes are revenge against the seniors and the desire to bolster self-esteem. And only a quarter of such criminals confessed that they were driven by “low moral qualities.”
Earlier, the head of the Prosecutor General’s Office for the Supervision of the Implementation of Anti-Corruption Law, Alexander Rusetsky, said that a corrupt official is a man of 30-49 years old, who is not afraid to serve several years in a colony, as he is confident of a comfortable future.
The Investigations Directorate in the Leningrad Region of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) is going through turbulent times. After an unexpected replacement of the supreme command, the winds of change started blowing. Colonel of justice Pavel Vymenets, the new acting head of the agency, launched personnel reshuffles. According to sources, all means are used to purge the ranks from corrupt officers, including collection of compromising materials and denunciations.
