Samara: OEBiPK ex-operative to face trial for 350 thousand rubles bribe
The officer extorted a bribe for his refusal to institute criminal proceedings.
The Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia in the Samara region has completed the investigation into a criminal case against the former operational officer of economic security and anti-corruption department (OEBiPK) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Oktyabrsky and Zheleznodorozhny districts of Samara.
The former policeman, whose name is not called, is accused of taking bribes. The criminal case against him the Leninsky District Court of Samara will consider.
According to the materials of the case, on November 14, 2016 the policeman took action aimed at accepting a bribe in the amount of 350 thousand rubles from the suspect, promising to make a decision on refusal to initiate criminal proceedings against the bribe-giver. The case had to be initiated as a result of a procedural audit, which was in his procedure.
However, after receiving bribes, the operative was detained by the Federal Security Service of the Samara region.
After the arrests of ministers and billionaires, the business elite has understood – no one is invulnerable in Russia anymore. Recently industrial giant Power Machines Open Joint Stock Company has been shaken – the surprising arrest of its General Director by the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation amid the escalating international ‘turbine’ scandal has resulted in a criminal case and high-profile resignation.
The Moscow lawyer filed a lawsuit asking the Ministry to explain on what grounds parliamentarians are being paid colossal amounts, while the majority of Russian pensioners "drag out a half-subsistence existence."
