Saratov’s Prosecutor was arrested for two months on suspicion of taking bribes
According to investigators, Chechin demanded a bribe of 10 thousand dollars for the termination of the criminal case.
The court arrested the Saratov's Prosecutor Vladimir Chechin for two months. Chechin is suspected of committing crimes under part 5, Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking), part 3 of Art. 30, part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Attempted Swindling).
Recall that the Prosecutor was caught red-handed when receiving money during a joint security operation of the regional FSB and the ICR. According to investigators, Chechin demanded a bribe of 10 thousand dollars for assistance in the termination of the criminal case and 750 thousand for the cancellation of the arbitration court's decision, but, in fact, he did not have appropriate authority to implement promised.
According to Sobesednik, in 2014, the President’s former guard and Governor of Tula region got an apartment in a block near the Pushkin museum. Similar apartment in the same block was up for sale for 1 billion rubles ($15 million).
