Rafkat Rasulov was found guilty of abuse of official powers.
The Samara region court sentenced to a 40.000-ruble fine Rafkat Rasulov, the head of the Interior Ministry's Department for the Chelny-Vershinsky District, for bribes from his subordinates, the press service of the regional department of the ICR said.
Rasulov was found guilty of Exceeding Official Powers (part 1 of Article 286 of the Criminal Code). After the complaints of subordinates, the policeman was fired.
According to the prosecution, in November 2017 the policeman demanded from six of his subordinates a part of their award. As a result, he received 20.000 rubles ($300) from five employees, and another 10.000 from another. Also, one of the subordinates made home decorating for free.
The arrest of Rauf Arashukov was a signal to the other senators: not only the governors but also members of the Federation Council, have lost the status of untouchables. So, it’s time to learn to live modestly, without inappropriate luxury. The most perspicacious realized this a few years ago and stopped giving their beloved ones.
