Samara: former deputy sentenced to five years' imprisonment for large bribe
Vladimir Syusin received 1.2 million rubles ($21.300) from a local entrepreneur for ‘covering’ car wash.
The court in Samara jailed former Duma deputy Vladimir Syusin for five years in a general-regime penal colony for receiving 1.2 million rubles in bribes, the press office of the ICR regional department reported on Wednesday, April 19.
As it was established during the investigation, Syusin received money from the local businessman for "general patronage over the functioning of the car wash." As the ICR noted, previously Syusin had received 15% of the monthly profits (totaling more than a million rubles) from the functioning of the car wash. In addition, the deputy and his family members were provided with car washing services at a low price.
A new person turned out to be complicit in the high-profile incident in the center of the Russian capital that involved some thieves in law, mafia bosses and pop stars. It is Magomed Ismailov, the famous MMA fighter.
In the Irkutsk region a scandal connected with information about the arrest of deputy chairman of the administrative court Nikolay Novokreshchenov due to $134.155-bribe-taking runs high; Sergey Shishkin, an adviser to the region's Governor, mentioned it on the radio interview. The court the detention of the deputy chairman is refuted, but unofficial sources in law enforcement structures confirm.
