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.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
