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.
Spanish prosecutor is widely known as the man who "brought down the Russian mafia in Spain," as he has been fighting Tambovskyaya, Solntsevskaya, Malyshevskaya, and Izmaylovskaya organized crime groups of Russia. Jose Grinda condemned the UK’s lack of cooperation in a fight with the organized crime which has gone increasingly global.
Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
